Regents' Policy Manual - Section 2.8: Visitors to the University

Adopted Date: 09-12-1996
Amended: 06-12-2012


This policy applies to all persons on University campuses who are not members of the University community.


The University acknowledges and affirms the rights of visitors under the federal and state constitutions, including First Amendment and due process rights. However, conduct which adversely affects the University's educational function, disrupts community living on campus, or interferes with the rights of others to pursue their education, to conduct their University duties and responsibilities, or to participate in University activities shall be considered an offense against the University. Such conduct is prohibited and shall lead to disciplinary action, including expulsion or barring from campus, or arrest by the University when the offense occurs on University premises, as part of a University-sponsored event, or in connection with University activities. The Regents adopted a "Visitor Code of Conduct" which is published in the UNM Pathfinder. The Code specifies the types of conduct which will lead to disciplinary action and the sanctions for such conduct.
