Office of Student Conduct
PURPOSE OF THE OFFICE OF STUDENT CONDUCT
The purpose of the Office of Student Conduct is to ensure that students will not be deprived of life, liberty or property, administer a fair student disciplinary process that adheres to prescribed standards and to establish guidelines and rules to ensure that students maintain appropriate behavior at the University and off-campus. The Code of Student Conduct creates an expectation of behavior that the Institution deems acceptable. It is each student's responsibility to adhere to the policies and standards of conduct prescribed by the University, the Board of Supervisors for the University, as well as those established by local, state and federal laws. The University publishes rules, regulations and policies concerning acceptable student behavior in the Code of Student Conduct.
