Office of Student Judicial Affairs
Beverly Crawford, Director
The Office of Student Judicial Affairs is a Division of Student Affairs designed to promote student learning, growth and development by increasing awareness of the University’s expectation(s) of behavior and collaboratively working with other departments in an effort to create a safe, secure, and civil environment conducive to learning. Additionally, the area exists to administer a fair student disciplinary process that adheres to prescribed standards.
It is each student’s responsibility to adhere to the policies and standards of conduct prescribed by the University, the Board of Supervisors for the University of Louisiana System, as well as those established by local, state and federal laws. The University publishes rules, regulations and policies concerning acceptable student behavior in the Code of Student Conduct.
The Code of Student Conduct creates an expectation of behavior that the Institution deems acceptable. Its primary purpose is to ensure students will not be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process.
- To facilitate a process that promotes student development by challenging and supporting students owning individual responsibility;
- To use educational strategies and disciplinary counseling as a catalysts for self-understanding and personal growth;
- To enforce a system characterized by accountability, compassion, and increased civility; and
- To promote a safe, orderly and positive University climate through informational programming, training, and intervention efforts.
