Citizenship Education

About

Fall 2013 RA StaffUNC Asheville takes pride in a commitment to learning, creativity, diversity, engaged citizenship, equity, trust and integrity. Students, as integral members of the UNC Asheville community, should conduct themselves in a manner that consistently represents the university in a positive light. To that end, responsible citizenship includes an expectation that members actively participate in behavior that complements and upholds the values and mission of UNC Asheville. Members of the university community are expected to engage in conduct that contributes to the culture of integrity and honor upon which UNC Asheville is grounded.  UNC Asheville's Student Code of Community Standards outlines the behavioral expectations of UNC Asheville students, as well as our Citizenship Education Process.  Should you have questions, please contact Melanie Fox, Director of Residential Education and Citizenship Education at 828.251.6700.

Resident Student's must adhere to the same policies outlined in the Student Code of Community Standards as well as following all the guidelines and polices in the Resident Student Handbook.

Academic Integrity violations are part of the Student Code of Community Standards, but are resolved through academic channels. A student is encouraged to work directly with their faculty member should there be a question or accusation of academic dishonesty. Students also have the ability to bring their concern or complaint to the Faculty Conciliator  who can work with the student on the conciliation process. The Conciliator is also available to assist with other academic grievance issues, as is our Associate Provost, Patricia McClellan in the OneStop office.
