Conduct Process

Depending on the nature of the violation, an informal or formal resolution process will be followed.

Informal Process

Alleged violations of the UNDERC Community Rules by students, faculty or staff may be referred to an informal “Meeting” process as described below.

  • Meetings are intended to allow for the discussion of alleged violations of UNDERC Community Rules.  Meetings will be administered by the Assistant Director of UNDERC or designee.
  • Outcomes from Meetings are formative by design and tailored to balance the needs of the individual and respect for the community.  The results of meetings are documented, and this record may be used to establish a conduct history at the University.
  • If the designee conducting a Meeting receives information that suggests a formal process would be a more appropriate setting, the designee will stop the Meeting and the matter would be referred to the formal process as described below.

Outcomes from Meetings may include, but are not limited to:

  • Verbal or Written Warnings
  • Written Assignments
  • Loss of Driving Privileges for a specified period
  • Loss of Recreational Privileges for a specified period
  • Loss of Opportunity to Live at UNDERC for a specified period

Repeat violations of Community Rules will be referred to the Office of Community Standards (for students), Office of the Provost (for faculty) or Office of Human Resources (for staff).

Formal Process

All other alleged violations of the UNDERC Conduct Expectations, University policies, or repeat violations of Community Rules will be addressed through a formal process administered by the appropriate administrative unit on Main Campus:

  • Alleged violations by students (undergraduate or graduate) will be resolved through the University Conduct Process managed by the Office of Community Standards as outlined in du Lac: A Guide to Student Life.
  • Alleged violations by faculty will be referred to the Office of the Provost for review.
  • Alleged violations by staff will be referred to the Office of Human Resources for review.

Outcomes from this process could include, but are not limited to:

  • Permanent Loss of Driving or Recreational Privileges
  • Permanent Loss of Opportunity to Live at UNDERC
  • No Contact Order with an individual(s) at UNDERC
  • Ban from UNDERC (and partner) Property for a specified period or permanently
  • Disciplinary Probation
