I received a letter. What comes next?

We understand that outreach from our office can bring forward a number of questions, concerns or reactions.

We strive to be as transparent as possible about what you can expect when meeting with the Student Conduct team. The steps listed on the right provide a comprehensive overview of what you can expect from the student conduct process. 

If you have questions beyond this overview, you can request a meeting with a member of our team, by emailing [email protected]

We also have created a list of community resources outside of our office that can provide support as you prepare for your meeting. 

What is a conduct review meeting / hearing?

First and foremost, we view ourselves as educators. If you are scheduled to meet with us to discuss potential policy violations, here are the goals for our conversation:

  • Review of Expectations: Take time to review the University Policies to ensure that you have an understanding of why you are meeting with us. 
  • Reflection on Experiences: Provide a space you to reflect on the matter that was referred to our office, and what factors may have contributed to your referral.
  • Reframing of Behavior: An opportunity to reflect on different decisions that could have been made in the moment, as well as an opportunity to reflect on future decision-making. 
  • Reflection on Resources: Sharing resources that are available should you need further support in this situation, or for future situations while at the University.

Please note that all conversations with Student Conduct is considered private and we ask that you be in a private space or location. If you are in need of a private space, please reach out to [email protected] so that we can coordinate with you to provide you a location.
