The Creed

Students at The University of Mississippi have the responsibility to uphold the Creed of the University. The Creed is the umbrella under which all of the rights, responsibilities, rules, and regulations are based. Although no University judicial action will be taken based exclusively on the Creed, as the Creed is the spirit of all our other policies, action may be taken if conduct violates those policies.
