Student Conduct

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
