Student Conduct

Arkansas State University-Newport is an interdependent learning community consisting of students, faculty, and staff. Just as any community has a culture, along with written and unwritten “expectations” for conduct, we too have a culture and associated expectations for behavior. The community’s expectation is that conduct is marked by integrity. Any student who chooses to enroll at the university also chooses to become part of this community and constructively contribute to its culture. This choice is an obligation to conduct oneself in such a way as to facilitate the mission of the community, which is to “... transform the lives of our students, enrich our communities, and strengthen the regional economy.”

The following principles are part of the collective expectation of the members of this community relative to personal conduct:

  • Ethical Behavior - The pursuit of a higher education is a privilege. Associated with that privilege is an obligation to aspire to a set of principles and values that demonstrate a commitment to fairness, honesty, empathy, and achievement.
  • Morality - Members of a learning community commit to the ideals of appropriate human conduct. This lifestyle seeks to harm no one and attempts to be a positive contributor in every interaction.
  • Respect - Every member of this community should seek to gain and demonstrate respect. Members should hold one another in high regard. Each individual should conduct himself or herself in a manner worthy of that regard, which is gained by decent and correct behavior.

The learning community at Arkansas State University-Newport does not intend to be prescriptive regarding the personal beliefs and value systems of its members. However, this community does believe that it has a right to expect its members to demonstrate personal responsibility and integrity in word and deed.
