The Office of Student Conduct (OSC) administers the Statement of Student Rights and Code of Student Conduct, which outlines the rights and responsibilities of the student body at Southeast.
The OSC collaborates with a number of offices within the Division of Enrollment Management and Student Success as well as the Department of Public Safety, the Department of Athletics, academic departments, and other campus units to support students in their educational efforts.
Along with adjudicating student cases, the OSC provides information related to student conduct and campus civility to students, student groups, athletic teams, and faculty/staff through various outreach efforts. Also, the OSC offers students the opportunity to mediate certain student conflicts and incidents rather than adjudicating the case through the judicial process.
