Student Development and Standards Office
The mission of the Student Development and Standards Office is to foster personal growth and community safety by holding students accountable for conduct which is inconsistent with the Student Conduct Code and the Core Values and Hallmarks of NDNU. Programs regarding prevention and education take place throughout the year. These aim to help students make mature decisions which are in their own and the community’s best interests.
The Student Development and Standards Office:
- Upholds the Student Conduct Code through adjudicating cases or arranging for cases to be adjudicated
- Educates the campus community about the Student Conduct Code & the Conduct Process
- Develops programs to educate about alcohol and illicit drugs
- Recruits, trains and works with the Student Conduct Board
- Incorporates NDNU’s Core Values & Hallmarks in all its work
- Aims to help students get back on track and be successful
- Approaches each case in a fair and transparent manner.
Faculty, staff and students may consult with the assistant director of Student Development and Standards about any student behavioral issue. Academic misconduct cases are most often dealt with by the Schools and Faculties in which they occurred. For more information regarding academic misconduct, please refer to p. 10 of the Student Conduct Code.
