Student Discipline

The disciplinary powers of The LSU System are derived from the provisions of the Louisiana Constitution of 1974, and the Louisiana Revised Statutes which established the Board of Supervisors with the power to adopt rules and regulations necessary for the government of The University System consistent with the purposes for which it was founded and to adopt rules and regulations governing student conduct.

The University System, therefore, has a responsibility to protect its educational purposes, and, as a corollary, its community. It follows that the function of its disciplinary powers is to protect its educational purposes and the health and safety of its community and the safety of property therein, through regulating the use of University System facilities and setting standards of scholarship and conduct for its students.
