V. Failure to Comply

Developing safe and comfortable communities requires cooperation from residents. At times, residents may question the Standards of Conduct and policies. Residents who wish to voice their concerns regarding the Standards of Conduct should make an appointment with the Resident Director, Graduate Resident Director, Assistant Director of Safety and Conduct, or other administrative staff. However, residents who fail to comply with the instructions provided to them by hall staff or other university officials are in violation of the Standards of Conduct.

A. Failure to Comply. Failure to comply with the directions of a university official, including a residence or dining hall staff member acting in an official capacity. This includes the failure to complete a sanction assigned in response to a policy violation.

B. Identification. Failure to produce an official ID card upon request of any staff member. 

C. False Identification. Providing or being in possession of false identification or providing false information to a university official.  False ID's will be confiscated and the resident may be referred to the University Police Department or the Office of Student Conduct.

D. Encouragement/Involvement. Active or passive participation in a violation, aiding or encouraging others to violate hall policies, remaining present while policy violations are occurring, or failure to report a violation by others when having direct knowledge of that violation. 

E. False Information. Providing false, deceptive or distorted information to a staff member. 

F. Roommate Contracts. Failure to establish and abide by reasonable roommate/suitemate agreements.

G. Building Evacuation. Failure to evacuate the building during an activated fire alarm or when directed to do so in an emergency. Remaining in the building during an emergency places not only the individual at risk, but will result in administrative action.
