Wellness – Restoration – Knowledge – Accountability

The Office of Student Conduct promotes personal responsibility and encourages civility, integrity and a sense of community among UNC Charlotte students. The purpose of the student conduct process is to maintain a campus community conducive to a positive learning environment. Consistent with this purpose, intentional efforts are made to foster the personal, social and ethical development of those students whose behavior is in conflict with University expectations, both in and out of the classroom. The desired outcome of the student conduct process is to provide an educational opportunity by which individuals or groups can recognize the consequences of their actions and be held accountable for their choices. The Office of Student Conduct provides a venue for this learning, and also serves in the role of advocate and resource for students who have been victims of crime, illness, harassment, or other crises.
