Student Conduct and Community Standards Committee (formerly The Student Conduct Committee)

The name and charge of this committee were changed by US07/07-3 in November 2007. It amends previous legislation in Motion US00/01-6 which revised the charges to the standing University Committees. Student Conduct and Community Standards Committee * The Student Conduct Committee, as designated in OAR 571-21-110, shall be responsible for administering the Student Conduct Code and Student Conduct program as follows:
  • o (1) The Student Conduct Committee shall be responsible for formulating or approving, prior to implementation, regulations and enforcement procedures pertaining to student disciplinary matters at the University of Oregon, and recommending to the faculty policy or administrative changes in any aspect of the Student Conduct Program; and
  • o (2) With the consent of the President of the University, the Student Conduct Committee may sub-delegate jurisdiction to handle violations of the Student Conduct Code or other University regulations to University officials, committees, or minor tribunals. The Student Conduct Committee is staffed by the office of the Student Conduct Coordinator.

    MEMBERSHIP: The Committee shall be appointed by the President and shall consist of four faculty members to be recommended by the Committee on Committees and four student members to be recommended by the ASUO. Faculty and student members shall serve staggered, two-year terms and may be reappointed, up to three consecutive terms, or a maximum of six consecutive years. The President may appoint temporary members to assure full Committee membership during summer session or at such other times as are necessary. The Director of Residence Life or designee, the Director of Student Conduct and Community Standards and the Director of the Office of Student Advocacy shall be non-voting, ex-officio members of the Community Standards Committee.


    The Student Conduct Committee shall report to the University Senate. At a minimum this report shall be in the form of an annual written report submitted by the Committee Chair to the Secretary of the University Senate no later than the final University Senate meeting in May. The committee shall also make additional written or oral reports to the Senate as necessary.

    See also US01/02-4 which is a process for filling vacancies on elected committees:

    7.1 Since 1991-92, all non-elected committees established by faculty legislation are appointed by the Committee on Committees, a committee appointed by the University Senate. The Secretary of the Faculty shall coordinate the elections of faculty to elective committees. The secretary shall arrange for the filling of vacancies on elected committees and councils by notifying the next eligible candidate, determined in descending order of the number of votes received in the most recent election for the relevant committee or council. If no eligible candidate is available to fill the vacancy, the Senate Executive Committee, with advice and recommendations from the Committee on Committees, shall appoint an eligible faculty member to fill the vacancy until the next regular election cycle. Filling a vacancy shall not preclude the appointee from standing for election to the same committee or council during the next election cycle if eligible. 


    Student membership not available.
