Mission

Mission Statement

The mission of Student Conduct is to educate students concerning their rights, privileges, and corresponding duties and responsibilities. We recognize that every facet of student life is an opportunity for learning and inquiry. The Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities, along with other University policies, are educational tools designed to assist students in their development as active, involved, and responsible citizens.

We strive to maintain a balance, fostering the exercise of individual rights while maintaining and enhancing an academic environment within a caring, civil, and safe community. This can best be achieved through a participatory educational process where students encounter the fair and impartial enforcement of University policies and mediation of conflicts, leading to understanding and acceptance of the consequences of their behaviors.

Student Conduct also serves as a resource to student organizations, University departments, and individual faculty, staff, and students who may be victimized by other students or student organizations.
