When incidents happen and University of Wisconsin students are involved, the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards (OSCCS) works with students to resolve academic and nonacademic disciplinary matters.
This includes receiving reports of alleged misconduct, ensuring that students receive due process and fair treatment throughout the hearing process, and maintaining students’ disciplinary records.
The Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards upholds every student’s right to learn in an inclusive community that fosters integrity through challenging and supporting students to reflect, integrate, and act on their Wisconsin Experience.
We employ a compassionate, educational, and supportive manner in the student misconduct process.
Our approach is to guide student behavior for the common good while respecting the rights and responsibilities of all members of the university community.
