Office of Student Conduct

The Office of Student Conduct exists to serve the students of the Missouri State University community. The office is responsible for the implementation of the Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities, adjudicating alleged violations of the code, safeguarding student rights and dealing with emergency situations which involve students.

Student Rights and Responsibilities

All Missouri State University students possess certain rights, privileges and responsibilities.  Each student is due respect of their personal dignity and property, and in turn is responsible for maintaining standards of personal behavior which do not interfere with the rights of others or with the functioning of the University.

The Office of Student Conduct recognizes that every facet of student life is an opportunity for learning and inquiry. The Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities should be viewed as an educational tool designed to assist students in their endeavors to educate themselves and become active, involved, and responsible citizens.

News and Events

MSU Jeopardy event a hit!!

Under the auspices of the International Center for Academic Integrity, the Office of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity, along with 5 other campus partners hosted MSU’s Inaugural Jeopardy event on October 16, 2019 in the PSU.


This event, which was one of the major educational programming events for the offices, was geared towards educating students about the policies, roles, and services provided by the Dean of Students Office, Office of Student Engagement, Center for Dispute Resolution, Athletics, Office of Student Conduct, Academic Integrity, and Student Government Association.


This was the first event of its kind at Missouri State University and one that has further enhanced the partnerships between the Student Affairs offices. Students got an opportunity to demonstrate their commitment as “Citizen Bears” to upholding the three pillars of our public affairs mission: Ethical Leadership, Cultural Competence and Community Engagement.
