University Student Conduct System


The mission of the Office of Student Affairs is as follows:

"We help our students understand that learning is a holistic and ongoing experience that integrates classroom knowledge with out-of-class educational opportunities. Students are encouraged to grow and develop through participation in programs, services, and a living environment that promotes self-actualization through action, reflection, and emotional engagement. Ultimately, our objective is to graduate students who are prepared for leadership and productive citizenship and who can effectively function in and contribute to an increasingly diverse, technologically advancing, and more complex national and international society."

The Code of Student Conduct helps foster the pursuit of knowledge and provides a judicial process that ensures fairness to students who are alleged to have violated University regulations.


What does the University Student Conduct System do?


  • Provides an educational and developmental conduct process that balances the interests of the individual student with the interests of the University community

  • Establishes a judicial process that is fair and equitable to students who may have violated the regulations of the University

  • Issues responsibility to those who violate those standards, rules, and/or policies

  • Ensures thorough, neutral, and impartial practices and generates prompt resolutions

  • Protects the interests of the community and challenges those whose behavior is not in accordance with University policy

  • Educates students about their rights and responsibilities while promoting holistic development, self-worth, and mutual respect for all members of the University community
