Through interaction with the Office of Student Conduct and Civility Education, we strive to foster development of our students, encouraging and challenging them to think beyond themselves; so they will engage as civil members of the University, understanding their role as part of the greater community.
Engage students in opportunities for learning through their participation in an educational, fair, socially-just, and multi-faceted adjudication process that addresses allegations of misconduct.
Educate the campus community on the Code of Student Conduct and community standards of acceptable behavior.
Promote a campus climate rooted in civility by offering educational sessions, programs, and consultation to the campus community.
Develop, implement, and assess educational and disciplinary sanctions that empower students to think critically, to make safe and healthy choices, and to become engaged community members.
