Section II. Jurisdiction

Code of Student Conduct

The Code of Student Conduct and discipline system outline the rights and responsibilities of students and student organizations. This Code addresses misconduct that takes place on University premises and addresses off-campus conduct when the behavior may have or has had an adverse impact upon the University community.  Procedural rights of students and student organizations, as well as possible sanctions are also enumerated within the Code.

The Code also applies to University sponsored events, activities, trips, etc., which may occur off campus. A student who violates the Code and breaks the law is subject to University, civil, and/or criminal authorities. The University, at its sole discretion, may pursue disciplinary action against a student while the student is also subject to criminal proceedings. The University reserves this right even if criminal charges are pending, reduced, or dismissed.

The Wright State University conduct system is the responsibility of the vice president for student affairs. The director or designee of the Office of Community Standards and Student Conduct has specific responsibility for the day to day operation and administration of the conduct system. The director or designee shall develop policies for the administration of the student conduct system and procedural rules for the conduct of any hearing or conference that are not inconsistent with provisions of the Code.  The director or designee, in consultation with appropriate University officials and students, will revise and update all regulations and processes; conduct training sessions for hearing officers and bodies; and manage and maintain all student disciplinary records. Under the oversight of the director or designee, other members of the University's staff may also have responsibilities within the conduct system.
