It is important to note that the Associate Deans of each respective College within the University may become involved in a student’s conduct record. As outlined in the Students’ Rights Rules and Responsibilities, if a student is involved in a combination of multiple conduct violations and/or arrests the Associate Dean of their college may bring formal conduct charges forward and recommend at least a semester suspension from the University. While suspension is a sanction that impacts a student’s academic progress and access to social opportunities, this is not intended to be punitive in nature. The intent of this temporary separation from the University community is to help a student address whatever issues they may have in their life and assess what is and is not important to them through time away from UNH. It is the University’s desire that the student returns to UNH with an appropriate academic and social focus so they graduate from UNH.
