Behavioural Policies
The University of Manitoba is committed to creating a safe, respectful and civil working and learning environment. The University will not tolerate any conduct that has or might reasonably be seen to have an adverse effect on the integrity of the proper function of the University, or on the health, safety, rights or property of the University or of members of the University.

This page is a resource for those who have the disciplinary authority to respond to allegations of student misconduct or concerning behaviour under one or more of the University's behavioural policies.
