Purpose and Goals of the Student Conduct System at UCA
While working within the mission, vision, and values set forth by the UCA Housing and Residence Life Department, the Student Conduct System strives to positively impact the students within the UCA Housing and Residence Life community. To do so, the Student Conduct System has three primary purposes/goals: to change and redirect student behavior, protect the university environment, and protect the rights of students involved in the disciplinary process.
More specifically, the university endeavors to change and redirect student behavior that is unacceptable in the university community. To meet this goal, the university makes use of student judicial boards so students are provided feedback by their peers; and educational sanctions so students are provided with alternatives to unacceptable behavior.
The university strives to protect the university environment against acts of violence, destruction, and vandalism; and to provide a quality living and learning environment that is safe, secure, and conducive to academic pursuits. Therefore, it is necessary, on occasion, to remove students from the university community when the behavior is severe.
Finally, the university seeks to protect the rights of students involved in the disciplinary process by providing specific due process procedures, including appeals, to promote fair and just decisions.
