As an institution of higher learning and a community of persons with a special purpose, Bloomsburg University accepts its obligation to provide its members with an atmosphere which protects and promotes its educational mission and that guarantees its orderly and effective operation. To accomplish these goals, the University must require certain standards of conduct, which are then expressed through the Student Code of Conduct and Judicial Process. The Student Code of Conduct and Judicial Process does not replace or relieve the requirements of civil or criminal law.
The Student Code of Conduct and Judicial Process will be in accordance with Board of Governors Policy 1984-13-A and with Pennsylvania Code, Title 22, Part XVII, Chapter 505. The Student Code of Conduct and Judicial Process will be reviewed annually by the Office of the Dean of Students, other necessary administrative entities, and the Student Life Standing Committee. Any changes to the Student Code must be approved by the Council of Trustees prior to the updates being implemented, and subsequently may be presented at the first Secretariat and Forum meetings of the academic year.
The most current Student Code of Conduct and Judicial Process will be published on the Office of the Dean of Students website and disseminated to the entire student body.
