The Conduct Process at Dickinson

The information below provides a brief overview of the conduct process at Dickinson College. Please reference the Community Standards for additional information.  

Procedures for Resolving Misconduct

When the actions of a student(s) or organization violate the Dickinson College Community Standards, a process of review and resolution is implemented.  This section describes the various procedures employed for the resolution of concerns about behavior and conduct that is inconsistent with our values and standards as an academic community.  Generally, reports of violations of standards are submitted to the Vice President and Dean of Student Life Office at which point they are resolved formally or informally. All academic misconduct situations must be reviewed by a panel as part of the formal resolution process.
