Colorado State University expects students to maintain standards of personal integrity in harmony with its educational goals; to be responsible for their actions; to observe national, state, local laws, and University regulations; and to respect the rights, privileges, and property of other people.
The student conduct process is intended to be a learning experience which can yield growth, behavioral changes, and personal understanding of one’s responsibilities and the consequences and impacts of one’s actions. This process balances the needs and rights of students with the needs and expectations of the University and larger community. It supports and values Colorado State University’s Principles of Community and offers a continuum of responses, many of which are educational and restorative in nature. Students are treated with care and respect while being afforded the opportunity to receive a fair hearing. Sanctions and interventions are designed to promote the University’s educational mission.
The Student Conduct Code defines University intervention, resolution options and possible disciplinary action related to the behavior of both individual students and student organizations.
