Mission

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 aim to foster a sense of belonging within a welcoming environment, while challenging and supporting students to reflect, integrate, and act upon their Wisconsin Experience. University staff 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.
