Philosophy on Student Discipline

The university’s philosophy on student discipline is educational in nature. Oklahoma State University recognizes that students will make mistakes and, at times, decisions that do not align with personal values and university expectations. SCEA is charged with helping students reflect and learn from these decisions by holding them accountable for their behavior. Through the conduct process, SCEA assists students in ethical, personal and intellectual development as well as developing character and integrity. SCEA offers education, challenge and support to students struggling with behavioral issues, and makes appropriate referrals to other resources as necessary.
