We share and uphold the Student Conduct Code in a manner that is centered on student learning, grounded in fairness and due process, and focused on balancing the interests of the individual with those of the campus community at large.
What we do
The Office of Student Conduct & Conflict Resolution addresses all non-academic alleged violations of the Board of Regents Student Conduct Code. We also provide tools for individuals to peacefully and effectively resolve disputes.
Why we do it
Our goal is to educate students about behavior and decision-making, and to foster a safe and healthy community in which academic success can occur.
The Office of Student Conduct & Conflict Resolution recognizes that college students (like all of us) make mistakes. We care for students and we help them by examining how their decisions and behaviors contribute to (or detract from) their overarching goals at UMD. Our outcomes provide students an opportunity to make things right or to prevent themselves from ending up back in the same situation again in the future.
Through the conduct process students will be able to:
- Articulate how their decisions contributed to a violation of the Student Conduct Code.
- Articulate how their behavior impacted others within and beyond the campus community.
- Explain specific changes for future behavior.
- Articulate an understanding of the conflict between the incident and their personal values.
