UIW Student Handbook and Student Conduct Procedures

Student Handbook

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 UIW Student Handbook contains many of the policies that govern student life here at the university. The Student Code of Conduct is one section of the UIW Student Handbook. It is strongly encouraged that all students read the entire Student Handbook, with particular attention to the Student Code of Conduct, on an annual basis, as all students are responsible for abiding by the policies listed therein.

Student Conduct Procedures

The Director of Student Conduct and Community Standards is designated to promote and administer the standards of conduct as reflected in the UIW Student Handbook and other University policies and guidelines. The Director 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.

Drug Free Schools and Communities: Alcohol and Other Drug Information

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.
