The Office of Student Conduct & Community Standards has started two new initiatives to increase our educational contact with the community and alternative methods of resolving conflicts.
The Student Ambassador Program gives students an opportunity to educate and advise their peers about community standards and hearing processes. This leadership opportunity helps participating students build skills in written, digital, and interpersonal communication and gives students going through our Dean's Hearing process a team of peers who can answer questions and guide them through their experience.

The Restorative Justice initiative provides an alternative method to dispute resolution that brings responsible parties and harmed parties together for facilitated dialogue about incidents of concern. Trained facilitators help all parties articulate the impact of these incidents and work together to create an agreement for repairing the harm that was done.

The staff and students who work with the Office of Student Conduct & Community Standards are also available to speak to different groups about topics related to the Code of Student Conduct, including reviewing particular policies and providing information about our processes. As our initiatives grow and take shape, we will have a more comprehensive list of programs and presentations to offer. If you would like more information about this, please contact the Office of Student Conduct & Community Standards at [email protected] or via telephone at 401-863-3145. More information will be available as the menu of programs develops.
