The Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities conveys the University of Michigan values of civility, dignity, diversity, education, equality, equity, freedom, honesty, and safety. These values undergird the rights and responsibilities of all students at the University of Michigan.
The Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities
The Office of Student Conflict Resolution is responsible for administering the Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities (The Statement). The Statement is a community-created and community-owned representation of our shared values. This document sets forth the values and expectations for learning through the peaceful resolution of conflict within our community. A central purpose of the Statement is to maintain a campus climate that supports the learning experience here at Michigan for all students. Similar to policies articulating standards for academic behavior and expectations within the schools and colleges at Michigan, the Statement sets forth the expectations for non-academic behavior for all students.
Access to the most recent version of the statement (enacted July 1, 2019) can be found here: The Statement Online; PDF Printer Friendly Version; or in hard copy in a residence hall community center or the Office of Student Conflict Resolution.
