Faculty Misconduct and Discipline

Policy number: 
Policy description: 

The University of North Texas (UNT) expects faculty to abide by the tenets of the UNT Policy 06.035 Academic Freedom and Academic Responsibility. Failure to follow faculty responsibilities as outlined in the Academic Freedom and Academic Responsibility Policy diminishes a faculty member’s capacity to effectively perform his or her teaching, research and creative activity, and service. Such failure ultimately impacts the ability of the university to carry out its mission. When a faculty member engages in inappropriate behavior or misconduct, the university may impose corrective actions.
