The Student Conduct System is designed to uphold the Code of Conduct and foster accountability and responsibility in OWU students. Learning is the core purpose of the Student Conduct System. When students violate the Code of Conduct, the goal is for them to understand why rules of conduct exist, why it is important to follow them, the impact that their behavior has on others, why it is important to make better choices in the future, and their place in the University community from a broader perspective.
