The student conduct system at the University of the Incarnate Word exists to ensure that our living and learning community reflects the mission of the University. The University seeks to balance rules that are necessary to function effectively in an educational community with each individual's rights to personal freedom. Community regulations are designed to guide the growth and development of individual responsibility, academic and personal integrity, and respectful interaction.
The Dean of Student Success is designated to promote and administer the standards of conduct as reflected in the Student Code of Conduct and other University guidelines and policies. The Dean is available to provide information to members of the community about the University's standards of conduct, the judicial process, and to hear allegations or complaints related to the conduct of students or student groups.
As a recipient of federal funding, the University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) is required to comply with the regulations set forth in the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act (EDGAR 86). As the University tenants of education and truth suggest, UIW is committed to continuously providing our students with up-to-date and comprehensive information. The document below is a compilation of Texas state laws, health information, and University student policies and services pertaining to alcohol and other drug use. It is important that all students review and understand this information as they proceed through academic careers at UIW.
