Purpose

Purpose of the Community Standards Board

The purpose of this Board shall be to conduct hearings on alleged infractions of University rules and provide appropriate sanctions in matters involving non-academic disciplinary matters where it is anticipated that a student infraction may result in a warning or disciplinary reprimand. The hearing is not a formal process such as a civil or criminal trial but an educational endeavor, which deals with alleged non-academic misconduct. Discipline in a university, by the very nature of the institution is educational, for that reason, formal rules of evidence shall not apply in disciplinary hearings. In addition, members of the Board will function as a programming board for the Office of Community Standards and Wellbeing. As a programming entity, they will work to promote the OCSW’s four pillars: Integrity, Dignity, Community, and Development.
