Our mission

The Office of Student Conduct uses an equitable and supportive approach to educate and partner with WMU students, faculty, staff and community members in order to develop a civil, ethical and safe campus environment.

The office

Western Michigan University is an educational community that aspires to be purposeful, open, just, disciplined, caring, and celebrative (Boyer, 1990). The Student Code and the Office of Student Conduct are tangible examples that illustrate commitment to these ideals. The Student Code describes the boundaries of acceptable behavior and is approved by the Board of Trustees. The Office of Student Conduct interprets and enforces the Student Code. The Office of Student Conduct strives to assist the University and students in creating and maintaining a positive environment in which students can live and grow. Students are encouraged to develop integrity through self-discipline and a sense of responsibility to the community.

Our services include:

  • Coordinating the student conduct processes described in the Student Code.
  • Acting as a resource for students, faculty and staff on matters related to student conduct.
  • Coordinating and advising conduct panels and the University Appeals Board.
  • Facilitating the procedures necessary to support the student academic conduct process.
