Student Conduct Office Services

  • Specific Services Provided

    • Adjudicate alleged violations of university policies/procedures
    • Conduct disciplinary hearings
    • Provide information and consultation to faculty, staff, students, and parents (of dependent students under 21 years of age) regarding student conduct
    • Mediate conflicts between students and/or recognized student organizations, as possible
    • Respond to conduct record checks by outside agencies
    • Annually update The Student Conduct Policies and Procedures

    The student conduct system at IUP is designed to be non-adversarial, with the intent of promoting behavioral change in the student while protecting the rights of the members of the university community.

    When responding to behavior that violates federal, state, and local laws and ordinances, the Office of Student Conduct does not replace the criminal justice system or other legal responses; rather, the office adjudicates alleged behaviors separately from any legal action that is taken. Students and recognized organizations that violate law and university policy should expect to be held accountable for their behavior through both the legal system and the university student conduct system.

    University policies and regulations are provided in The Student Conduct Policies and Procedures. Individuals who desire a hard copy of The Student Conduct Policies and Procedures should contact the Office of Student Conduct in Ruddock Hall, Suite G11.
