Transforming Our Office Space

Posted on 12/10/20 8:56 PM

Over the course of several years, the Office of Student Conduct has shifted the way they view student discipline. The office has gradually moved toward more intentional restorative and developmental practices to support the educational disciplinary process. In summer 2020, the office changed its name to the Office of Student Support and Community Standards in order to reflect the new direction of supporting and upholding students' rights and responsibilities.

As a way of expressing the values of the office, an original installation was created by students in collaboration with the IUP Department of Art and Design. The piece was created by undergraduate students Davey Beyer (art education), Kaycee Morgan (studio art), and Natalie Sharpless (art education) and MFA painting students Kamara Townes and Beth Wheeler.

This piece is permanently installed and can be seen in the Ruddock G-37 Office Suite, where the Office of Student Support and Community Standards is now located alongside the Office of Housing, Residence Life, and Dining and the Military and Veteran Resource Center.
