Our Mission

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 situations in which a student’s behavioral choices may negatively impact themselves or others utilizing a range of responses, for informal guidance to formal adjudication.  OSCCR staff determines the best approach, taking into account the needs of the individual, the needs of the community, the opportunity for student development, relevant law and policy, all while ensuring fundamental fairness.  

Learn more about the Opportunities for Resolution.

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.

Learning Outcomes

Through the conduct process students will be able to:

  1. Articulate how their decisions contributed to a violation of the Student Conduct Code.
  2. Articulate how their behavior impacted others within and beyond the campus community.
  3. Explain specific changes for future behavior.
  4. Articulate an understanding of the conflict between the incident and their personal values.
