Purpose

Western Connecticut State University and the CSU system have developed certain institutional values and expectations. All members of the university are expected to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with these values and expectations, and to comply with rules and policies in place while the individual is a member of the university community.

Disciplinary procedures have been established to ensure fair and consistent enforcement of the student code outlined in the Student Code of Conduct (revised 6-16-16) of the Student Handbook. These procedures are designed to provide impartial consideration of the facts and circumstances surrounding an alleged violation of the code, and to provide sanctions consistent with the severity of the violation.

All members of the community are expected to be familiar with the Connecticut State University Guidelines for the Student Code of Conduct (revised 6/16/16) contained in the Student Handbook.
