Student Conduct

SUNY Oswego promotes standards of student behavior and conduct that help maintain a campus environment where ideas are freely exchanged, property and processes are respected, and conflicts are resolved civilly.

The Code of Conduct, administered by the Director of Student Conduct, outlines policies and procedures to address violations that interfere with the educational mission of the College including residential conduct, organizational misconduct, academic dishonesty, and sexual misconduct.

Student Conduct is part of the institution’s programs designed to be community-focused, learning-centered, and procedurally sound and does not function like the separate legal or judicial processes on the municipal, state, and federal levels. The goal of Student Conduct at SUNY Oswego is to challenge students to adopt an informed set of ethics and values expressed through mutual respect, academic integrity, acceptable standards of behavior, and social responsibility by integrating the philosophies of restorative justice and inclusive excellence.

Our objectives are to:

  • Uphold the academic and behavioral standards of the College by promoting responsibility and resolving alleged policy violations of the Student Code of Conduct in a fair, impartial and unbiased manner.
  • Treat each student with dignity and respect.
  • Challenge students to adopt an informed set of ethics and values expressed through mutual respect, academic integrity, acceptable standards of behavior, and a commitment to social responsibility.
  • Educate students of the consequences associated with behaviors that violate community standards.
  • Act as a student conduct liaison for faculty, staff, and the campus community.
