Students and organizations are expected and
will be encouraged to manage their individual and group behaviors,
however, the Vice President of Student Affairs charges the professional
Student Affairs staff with responsibility to exercise jurisdiction
when the best interests of the University may be served and/or when
students fail or delay unnecessarily in carrying out their delegated
roles and responsibilities.
Due to the complexity of the concept of community
responsibility and accountability, and the nature of innovation
and human behavior, a complete list of prohibited behaviors would
be impossible to provide. Therefore, the Code
of Student Conduct sets out specific standards and expectations
as examples, though they are not intended to be exhaustive in
scope nor detail. Rather, students should know that violation
of or attempts to violate the behavioral guidelines specifically
detailed or implied herein - whether through verbal, written,
electronic or other means - or knowingly (including when one should
reasonably have known) creating a situation through which a violation
will occur, will subject a student to accountability under the Code.
If you have questions about the conduct
system, the Code
of Student Conduct, or the Behavior Education process on campus,
please contact the Student Life Office. The staff members are
happy to discuss your questions.
The conduct system is created to be educational in nature. The Conduct Process Flowchart can help you best understand what the process will look like. If you would like to have an advisor assist you while going through the conduct process, please review the Advisor/Support Person Guidelines.
Community Service Sanctions: If you have received community service hours as part of your sanction then you are responsible for completing those hours on time and turning them in to your hearing officer. Please submit all hours using the Community Service Log
