The Code of Student Academic Integrity has undergone a number revisions, including clarifying the applicability of the Code in grade replacement and withdrawal situations; clarifying faculty obligations to pursue academic integrity cases; clarifying that when an accused student is a graduate student, the faculty and student members of the hearing panel must include graduate faculty and a graduate student, respectively; and clarifying certain hearing and records retention procedures.
The revisions to this University Policy add certain offices to the list of offices with a legitimate educational interest so that those offices will be able to access and share relevant student records in performing their work.
This University Policy has been entirely rewritten to bring it in line with recent legislation and to provide members of the campus community with a more significant degree of protection from exposure to second-hand smoke.

Chancellor Dubois has approved revisions to this University Policy, effective January 1, 2008, that are legally required by new provisions in the North Carolina Office of State Personnel Equal Employment Opportunity Policy.
The revisions to this University Policy are intended to better control the volume of items the University is currently tracking through inventory. Specifically, the revisions increase the University’s fixed assets tracking and inventory threshold to $5,000. Previously the threshold was $5,000 for all equipment with the exception of laptops and data projectors, which had a $1,500 limit. In addition, under guidance provided by the State Controller, the University is required to track and inventory only property, plant, and equipment items costing $5,000 and above, but the University is free to set a lower threshold. Due to resource constraints, the University is opting to move the threshold for all property, plant, and equipment items to $5,000.
Revisions to University Policy 601.9 have been made to add more explicit provisions governing sales on campus. Specifically, proposed revisions to the Policy provide specific conditions under which Affiliated Groups and Non-Affiliated Groups may use University facilities to carry out sales and/or sales solicitation or sales promotion activities on the University campus. Accordingly, revision is also proposed for the policy title, adding the term “Sales” at the beginning.
