Mission and Staff for Conduct and Development


The Office of Student Conduct and Development provides learning opportunities conducive to the development of personal accountability, integrity, and citizenship. Students are encouraged to live and act respectfully, contributing to the betterment of the University community. The conduct process is first and foremost educational in nature not punitive. Students should approach the conduct process with this in mind.

We believe that:

  • Students, faculty and staff form an academic community in which learning takes place.
  • Every student has a responsibility for maintaining the standards of the community and for protecting the rights of other members.
  • The student conduct process assists in resolving conflicts and promotes a positive learning environment for all community members.

Students are capable of making their own decisions and accepting the consequences for those decisions. We are to hold students accountable for their behavior; assist students in understanding the effects of their behavior on the community, as well as others and themselves; assist students in learning more appropriate behavior; and ensure a safe and healthy environment for all members of the community.
