University of Minnesota has an official student conduct code which defines how students should conduct themselves in their classes. Inappropriate conduct includes cheating on exams, submitting homework that is not your own work, disruptive behavior, and other things. Instructors are required to deal with violations of the student conduct code according to the official mechanisms laid out in the conduct code.
