Consistent with current student conduct policy #1020 and current student conduct procedure #112, the objectives of the Judicial Affairs Office are:

  • Enforcing Student Code of Conduct in order to balance the interestes of promoting the safety, well-being and academic integrity of the entire University community with protecting individual student due process rights
  • Being available to students, faculty and staff to consult, help problem solve and mediate problems before they rise to the level of a student conduct code violation, and provide resource referrals where appropriate
  • Integrating restorative principles which balance student accountability with the opportunity for education and making amends

Student Conduct Complaint Process

WHO can file a complaint?

Any member of the university community: faculty, administration, staff and students.

HOW do I file a complaint?

Reports of alleged violations of the Student Code of Conduct can be made to the Dean of Students or to the Judicial Affairs Office by students, faculty, staff or administration.  The Dean of Students must first authorize any formal conduct code investigations before the Office of Judicial Affairs may proceed, but either office is available to take reports and for consultation. In some situations, issues may be resolved informally rather than through the formal conduct process.

Reporting forms are available for alleged academic and other student misconduct, but reports may also be made by e-mail, phone or in person:

WHAT happens next?

The Dean of Students or the Judicial Affairs Office will determine the appropriate route of response. Review the Student Conduct Flow Chart to for full explanations of each outcome.

Student Conduct Committee
