What is the OSC’s mission?
The Office of Student Conduct (OSC) supports the academic mission of the
university by promoting the development of a campus community
characterized by reasonable safety and security, responsible behavior,
civility, and respect. Through enforcement of university policies and
regulations, the office challenges students to take responsibility for
their actions, demonstrate respect for themselves, property, and other
individuals, and develop skills that will enhance lifelong problem
solving, communication, and decision-making abilities.
What is the OSC’s objective?
The disciplinary system at IUP is designed to be non-adversarial, with
the intent of promoting behavioral change while protecting the rights of
the members of the university community. The university judicial
process does not attempt to replace the criminal justice system or other
legal responses to behaviors that violate federal, state, and local
laws and ordinances. Students and recognized organizations that violate
law and university policy are held accountable through both the legal
system and the university disciplinary system.
