Mission, Values and Learning Outcomes

Developed in conjunction with the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs in pursuit of providing an optimal working and learning environment for UC San Diego students and the community.

Mission

The Office of Student Conduct leads and manages the UC San Diego non-academic student conduct process. We do this by partnering with the campus community to administer a fair and educational process, facilitate student growth and development, and maintain the integrity of our community by holding students accountable for policy violations.

Values

As Student Affairs professionals, we strive to embody the UC San Diego Principles of Community and the Student Affairs Strategic Plan in the values we promote to our students.

  • Fairness - We strive to facilitate an equitable and transparent process free from bias and prejudice.
  • Education - We strive to educate our students about community standards and expectations while providing them the knowledge and skills to enhance their decision making.
  • Accountability - We value taking responsibility for one's decisions and the impact of those decisions on our community.
  • Restorative Practices - We strive to faciiltate repairing harm suffered as a result of studnet conduct-related incidents. We value reintegrating students back into our community after participating in our process.
  • Growth and Development - We value helping students grow and learn from their decisions to develop into more responsible and community minded individuals.
  • Collaboration - We value our distinctive residential college system and work collaboratively with our compus colleagues to best serve our students.

Learning Outcomes

We engage in outcomes assessment to improve student learning, programming, and service delivery. Specifically, we focus on the following student learning outcomes:

  • As a result of their resolution meeting with a Student Conduct Officer, students will have greater knowledge, awareness, and understanding of our standards of conduct and consequences for violations.
  • As a result of their resolution meeting with a Student Conduct Officer, students will be able to identify and access relevant campus resources.
  • As a result of participating in restorative programs (e.g. restorative justice circles and the Practical Decision Making Assessment and Reflection), students will be able to articulate the impact of their decision-making on themselves and other members of the campus community.
  • As a result of participating in the Campus Alcohol Risk Reduction Seminar (CARRS), students will be able to identify and articulate practical tools and information for responsible use of alcohol.
  • As a result of participating in relevant student conduct training programs, student participants (e.g. conduct board members, student advocates, and resident/house advisors) will be able to articulate a greater understanding of the student conduct process and their roles within the process.
