The University 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. Student Conduct Education and Administration (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. 

Student Learning Outcomes

Through the conduct process, students will:

  • evaluate their personal responsibility for their conduct.
  • differentiate any incongruence between their values and their actions.
  • articulate how their behavior affected or could affect others.
  • evaluate the impact their decisions have on their academic and personal success.
  • articulate why the university community is concerned about their conduct.
  • define the acceptable behavior that is required of them while they are part of the university community.
  • recognize skills, strategies and resources that are likely to assist them in avoiding future violations of the Student Code of Conduct.
  • identify an informed decision-making process to prevent similar behavior.
