Enforcement of Code of Conduct

The University, through the Office of the Dean of Students, has the duty and corollary disciplinary power to protect its educational purpose and objectives through the setting of standards of conduct.

The disciplinary systems and procedures are substantially secondary to the use of example, guidance, counseling, and admonition in the development of responsible student conduct. When these preferred means fail to resolve problems of student conduct, procedural safeguards allow for proper action while protecting students from unfair imposition of serious penalties.
