Academic Personnel Policy 016 includes general policy regarding faculty discipline. It specifies the penalties that may be imposed for violations of the Faculty Code of Conduct, what types of faculty behaviors are covered under the Faculty Code, and which academic personnel are governed by the Faculty Code. Revised Academic Personnel Policy 015 and new Academic Personnel Policy 016 were approved by the Assembly of the Academic Senate on October 31, 2001, and adopted by The Regents on November 15, 2001.
