Community Standards & Student Conduct

Values

Integrity

Community Standards & Student Conduct (CSSC) strives to provide an honest process which ensures student rights are upheld. Through the Student Conduct Code we hold our students to the highest standards of ethics and integrity. The process is intended to hold students accountable while developing students holistically.

Responsibility

Through the student conduct process, CSSC helps students gain a greater awareness of self and develop a sense of purpose and civic responsibility. While cultivating responsible and ethical behavior, CSSC creates a community of mutual respect among students, faculty, staff, and off campus partners.

Excellence

CSSC provides a quality experience for campus and community partners who interact with the office. We are committed to using best practices to inform our work and assessment to improve the student conduct process.

Collaboration

CSSC partners with students, faculty, staff, and community members to collectively make the University community a positive learning environment.  By supporting students holistically, we work to ensure that they can partner with our staff to seek fair and equitable outcomes.

Respect

CSSC staff understands that our students, staff, and faculty have individual experiences, knowledge, and inherent human dignity. We value what is shared and work to honor those experiences while holding students accountable. We provide opportunities for students to learn about and understand the multiplicity of others’ experiences in a thoughtful and respectful manner.

Compassion

CSSC honors the challenges that students experience. We strive to ensure that students feel empathy, care, and support for their success and growth.  CSSC is thoughtful and caring in our interactions with colleagues and campus community.

Equity & Fairness

CSSC acknowledges that social inequities impact our students.  We work to balance this understanding with efforts to execute a process in a consistent and thoughtful manner.  When these are in conflict, we strive to honor the experiences of students and seek an outcome which helps students involved be successful.
