Student Conduct

The Office of Student Conduct believes each person has the right and ability to make decisions about his or her own conduct. Just as importantly, each person has the responsibility to accept the consequences of those decisions. When individual behavior conflicts with the values of the University, the individual must choose whether to adapt his or her behavior to meet the needs of the community or to leave the University. This decision, among others, assists each person to determine who he or she is with respect to the rest of society.

Vision

The Office of Student Conduct assists students in developing their individual potential by fostering accountability for daily actions and an awareness of their role as a contributing member of the community.
