Introduction


The Cumberland University Student-Athlete Code of Conduct explains policies related to the personal behaviour expected of all student-athletes and describes the discipline process associated with violations of those policies.

University Regulations


Student-athletes are students first, which means that all University policies governing personal behaviour apply to student-athletes. Expectations relating to personal behaviour include and alcohol-free community, a drug-free community and other guidelines described in the current University Catalog.

 

If a student-athlete violates a University regulation, he/she will meet with the Executive Vice President and Executive Director of Facilities and Safety, and/or the Dean of Students to discuss the violation and the University’s disciplinary response, which may include restricting a student-athlete’s ability to participate in his/her sport for a specified period of time or indefinitely.

 

In certain instances, the student-athlete’s coach and the Athletic Director will join in the discussion related to violations and the appropriate disciplinary response, and a student-athlete may be suspended from participation (practice or contests) or denied access to Athletic Department services while the alleged violation is under investigation.

 

In addition to the University’s disciplinary response, the coach may assign a team disciplinary response after consultation with the Athletic Director. In no circumstance does discipline or failure to impose discipline under the University regulations preclude discipline under the Athletic regulations, and/or by the University’s Athletic Department.
