Judicial Affairs enforces the Student Code of Conduct to balance the interests of promoting the safety, well-being and academic integrity of the entire university community with protecting individual students' rights of due process.
The office is 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. We promote integrating restorative principles to balance student accountability with the opportunity for education and making amends.
Any member of the university community—faculty, administration, staff and students—may file a complaint:
- Reports of alleged violations of the Student Code of Conduct can be made through the Code of Conduct form which is routed to the Judicial Affairs Office.
- For details on submitting the form, see the Incident Reporting Guide which outlines the Process of Submitting the Code of Conduct Incident Report.
- Allegations of academic dishonesty fall under the Academic Integrity Policy #2190 . Visit the Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure page for resources and further information.
Submitted reports are processed during normal business hours and responded to as quickly as possible. Please note they are not monitored after hours, on the weekends, or on holidays. If there is an immediate concern about a student, contact Safety and Security or, in an emergency, call 911.
After complaints are received, Judicial Affairs reviews all relevant information and determines the appropriate next steps.
Students may appeal decisions made by Judicial Affairs. However, grounds for an appeal do not include lack of familiarity with the conduct code, good character, or a personal commitment to behaving better in the future. File an appeal with the Student Misconduct Appeal form.
Student Conduct Committee
The Student Conduct Committee is comprised of faculty, staff and students. The committee hears conduct appeals and works closely with the Judicial Affairs Officer to review and revise student conduct policy and procedure as needed.
