Students Rights & Responsibilities
While the conduct of students in academic matters at the University of Toronto is governed by the Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters, the conduct of students in non-academic activities are governed by the Code of Student Conduct. The University of Toronto sponsors and encourages many non-academic activities, both on and off campus, and considers non-academic activities to be an important part of University life for its students. While the University takes the position that students have an obligation to make legal and responsible decisions concerning their conduct, the University has no general responsibility for the moral and social behaviour of its students. However, where conduct is not, for the purposes of the University’s defined purposes adequately regulated by civil and criminal law, the University defines standards of student behaviour and makes provisions for student discipline through the Code of Student Conduct.
