Student Conduct and Community Standards

The Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards upholds the Student Code of Conduct by resolving conduct matters through a fair, equitable, and reflective process. Supporting the mission of the University, we work collaboratively with students, faculty, and community partners to foster a safe, healthy and inclusive learning environment. 


About the Office

The Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards (SCCS) is the initial contact for student conduct issues. Upon receipt of any reports, SCCS may conduct an investigation to determine if the charges have merit and/or if they can be disposed of administratively by mutual consent of the parties involved. Students who are alleged to have violated the Student Conduct Code in the CenterScope Student Handbook or violated civil laws, University regulations, or policy will be appropriately advised of their rights and given a fair opportunity to provide evidence and facts for consideration.

SCCS may also analyze student conduct issues to identify possible patterns in an effort to employ strategies to reduce potential problems. SCCS regularly interacts with Student Affairs Officers within the colleges, Campus Police Office, Safety Affairs Office, University Health Services, Student Academic Support Services and Inclusion, Student Life, and Campus Recreation to resolve student conduct issues. This may also include recruiting, training and advising a review board body if utilized.
