Campus Expectations

Academic Integrity/Honesty

The purpose of the guide (linked below) is to assist faculty in creating an atmosphere which promotes academic integrity among students at The University of New Mexico. In furtherance of this goal, faculty are encouraged to educate students as to the definition of academic dishonesty, the consequences of such behavior, and the procedures for addressing academic dishonesty.

Behavior Intervention Team

The BIT began as the UNM Faculty Intervention Team in August 2007 and focuses on student behavior and assisting faculty and staff when students are in distress or behaving disruptively. This group of key campus personnel includes Student Affairs professionals and other experts utilized as needed. This team takes action when students make threats in a paper, express hopelessness through an art project, act out repeatedly in class, or harm themselves in residence halls. If you need assistance to determine the most appropriate action to take with a student’s troubling behavior, call the BIT at 277-SAFE (7233).

Social Networking Site

The University of New Mexico’s Dean of Students Office recognizes that social networking sites are now a part of our university culture. These websites offer students many opportunities to keep connected with their family, friends, and other social groups-- not only at UNM, but across the world. Occasionally, students will post information that is deemed offensive and/or something that may be seen as illegal, or a violation of UNM Policy. Although the Dean of Students Office does not actively peruse social networking sites to look for potential issues, we will investigate information brought forward that indicates there might be some type of violation. When utilizing these on-line resources, individuals should understand the following as potential risks of internet based communications:

  • Information posted online is typically there forever.
  • Information posted online is potentially available for everyone to see, such as future employers, university administrators, and parents
  • Providing too much personal information online (telephone numbers, addresses, photos, etc.) can be used to cause harm. Examples include: identity theft, online harassment, and stalking
  • A good “rule of thumb” is to not post any information that you would’t want your parents, a university administrator, a future employer, or a stalker to see
  • Should our office receive information that indicates a UNM student has violated university policy or state law, they may be held accountable for these postings through the legal process or through the Dean of Students judicial process
