What is the Office of Student Support and Community Standards’ mission?
The Office of Student Support and Community Standards 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 Office of Student Support and Community Standards’ objective?
The student conduct 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 student conduct 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 student conduct system.
