If a student feels as if their rights are violated during a student conduct hearing, they can appeal directly to the Vice President of Student Developmental Enrollment Services.
When an infraction is committed or in its aftermath, an incident report can be filed with the Office of Student Conduct (OSC).If this filing is found to have merit, OSC will then move to notify the student that charges have been filed against them and an initial meeting has been set up with an OSC or Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities staff member.Before, during and after the student conduct hearing many students feel that, if this was the “real” world, they would not be in trouble. In spite of these sentiments and, according to the Golden Rule Handbook, OSC can charge students for violating the law and/or the Golden Rule Handbook even if their incident occurred off campus.
A hard copy of Golden Rule Handbook and The Rules of Conduct can be found in the Office of Student Conduct. For more information on your rights and to receive personal guidance through the student conduct process, please contact LaShaunda Hayes, SGA’s Judicial Adivsor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
