Office of Student Conduct

Jurisdiction

The University reserves the right to initiate conduct proceedings for any student, group of students, or student organization that has allegedly violated a University regulation. Jurisdiction extends not only to violations that occur on University property, but also to off-campus violations when the behavior would constitute a violation of local, state, or federal law and/or when such behavior has an adverse effect upon the University community.  Such parties will be afforded all aspects of fairness and due process in all such matters. The student conduct system strives to maintain an educational environment, protecting the rights of others while holding individual students accountable for their actions, in a positive educational manner.  Members of the University community may initiate student conduct procedures if they have reason to believe that there has been a violation of University policy or the Student Code of Conduct.
