Office of Student Conduct
PURPOSE OF THE OFFICE OF STUDENT CONDUCT
The purpose of the Office of Student Conduct is to ensure that students will not be deprived of life, liberty or property, administer a fair student disciplinary process that adheres to prescribed standards and to establish guidelines and rules to ensure that students maintain appropriate behavior at the University and off-campus. The Code of Student Conduct creates an expectation of behavior that the Institution deems acceptable. 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, 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.
Grambling State University requires students to conduct themselves with respect for University values, including honesty and integrity. It is the responsibility of all students to conduct themselves according to the values within the Grambling State University Mission Statement, and to develop personal characteristics of honesty and integrity in all aspect of their lives. Students are expected to abide by all GSU policies and procedures and to obey laws enacted by the federal, state, and local governments. All acts of dishonesty, including both academic dishonesty and conduct unrelated to academics that has an adverse impact on the University, violate this policy.
The Office of Student Conduct strives to promote a safe, healthy, student-centered, and inclusive community where students can learn, grow, and develop as they pursue their educational endeavors and increase students awareness of Grambling State University’s expectations of behavior by collaboratively working with faculty, staff and other University associates.
