Student engagement provides leadership in the formulation and administration of policies and procedures related to student life and to the rights and responsibilities that accompany student citizenship in the university community. The Student Conduct Code as well as other important information pertaining to student life is included in the Student Handbook. Significant sections in the handbook and other university publications clearly describe Lamar University’s policies regarding such subjects as student absences, AIDS, non-discrimination, drug and tobacco use, Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA, the Buckley Amendment), residency, hazing, sexual harassment, student’s right-to-know, and campus security. It is the student’s responsibility to know university policies and procedures that are contained in the Student Handbook and to comply with them. View the Student Handbook online.
