About Us


The Office of Student Conduct strengthens the personal responsibility and accountability of students and supports the overall educational mission of the University through enforcement of the Student Disciplinary Regulations.


We envision a safe, learning-centered, civil, and inclusive community where all members are invested in personal and collective excellence for the betterment of self, others, and community.


The Office of Student Conduct is committed to advancement of the following values: Integrity, Accountability, Respect, Advocacy, Personal growth, Equity & fairness

The student conduct process is intended to be a learning experience which can yield student growth and development, behavioral change, and personal understanding of individual rights and responsibilities, as well as the consequences and impacts of behaviors. This process balances the needs and rights of students with the needs and expectations of the University and larger community.

The student conduct process addresses allegations of misconduct through a continuum from informal responses to formal adjudication. Students are treated with care and respect while being afforded the opportunity to share their experience and perspective and receive an objective and fair process. Sanctions and interventions are designed to be educational and restorative in nature, promoting the University’s mission.

Strategic Goals

  • Equitably enforce the Student Disciplinary Regulations and administer the student disciplinary process to address student conduct.
  • Provide educational training and outreach opportunities for students and the university community to promote a healthy and safe educational environment.
  • Promote and uphold the ethical and legal standards of the University, Division, and profession.
  • Engage students through educational interventions that promote ethical decision-making and promote student development.
