The University of Mississippi is dedicated to supporting and sustaining a safe and scholarly community of learning dedicated to nurturing excellence inside and outside of the classroom. The University Creed identifies community values to foster and maintain a safe and scholarly community, and the spirit of the Creed is incorporated in every University policy and procedure.
From the time of application for admission through the actual awarding of a degree, students accept the rights and responsibilities of membership in the University’s community. Students are expected to uphold community values by exercising a high standard of conduct at all times. Each student has a duty to become familiar with University values and standards reflected in University policies, and each student has a duty to honor University values and standards reflected in University policies.
The M Book contains many of the University’s values and standards. Annually, the Office of the Dean of Students and the Office of Conflict Resolution and Student Conduct publish the M Book to assist students with understanding their rights and responsibilities. While the M Book is a compilation of many different policies, it is an abbreviated guide of University policies and not a complete digest of all policies. For a complete listing of policies, please visit the University of Mississippi Policy Directory.
