The mission of the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards is to foster a sense of community and personal accountability, facilitate the resolution of student conflicts and/or conduct matters, provide support to students involved in campus conduct concerns, ensure fair and equitable responses from University processes, and to serve as a leader in educating and training members of the OWU community about expectations and standards for behavior.
This goal is achieved through an educational process designed to foster the holistic development of students and by supporting the rights and responsibilities of all students engaged in University response. The Office is committed to following established procedures and use of outcomes to support the mission of the University while maintaining ongoing care and concern for all students. The Office is responsible for maintaining student conduct records, processing reports received by the University if a student is involved, and ensuring integrity in University responses to student conduct.
What can this office do for you?
Students are encouraged to contact the office any time they have questions and/or concerns about policies or procedures or if you have experienced something that has impacted your connection to OWU. We want our community to be inclusive and welcoming and sometimes the University will need to respond to facilitate a conflict resolution. We will provide support and guidance for University response and offer options for resolution. You are also encouraged to submit a report online. Online reports can be found at the bottom of this page.
The OWU Student Handbook outlines Ohio Wesleyan’s policies and expectations as they relate to community standards. Any student involved in a conduct matter is encouraged to review this information prior to their scheduled conduct hearing or meeting.
