University Conduct Process
The University’s student life policies and the University Conduct Process are under the jurisdiction of the Office of Student Affairs. All alleged violations of University regulations are at the disposition of that office through the Office of Community Standards or designee. To determine if a student is responsible for a violation of the University Standards of Conduct, the University Conduct Process described below will be followed. Decisions regarding a student’s responsibility – or lack thereof – for a violation of policy will be based upon careful consideration of all available information and evaluated using a preponderance of the evidence standard (i.e. if it is "more likely than not" that the policy was violated).
Please select from one of the following:
- Conduct Settings
- Conduct Process Outcomes
- Conduct Case Review Procedures
- Emergency Actions
- Conduct Records Reporting Policy
Students with questions regarding the University Conduct Process may contact the Office of Community Standards, 306 Main Building, 574-631-5551.
note: For incidents involving alleged sexual or discriminatory harassment, the University has a separate process managed by the University's Office of Institutional Equity staff.
