As advocates for a safe campus community we assist with upholding all campus policies. When students violate university standards and polices they may be subject to the student conduct process.
Student Conduct Process
The University views the student conduct process as a learning experience that can result in growth and personal understanding of one's responsibilities and privileges within both the university community and the greater community. These procedures are designed to provide fairness to all who are involved in the conduct process. It is the goal of the Dean of Students Office for all students to fully understand their rights and responsibilities throughout the student conduct process.
