We respect the diversity of individuals and groups. We affirm our commitment to fairness and justice. We commit to conducting ourselves in accordance with the highest ethical standards.

Office of Student Conduct

The Office of Student Conduct is responsible for the coordination of all aspects of the student conduct process at NC State University. This includes providing educational programs to students, consulting with faculty and managing the review process for the resolution of alleged student misconduct.

The office administers the Code of Student Conduct in order to inform students of the expectations and standards they have as members of the NC State community. If there is an alleged violation of the Code of Student Conduct, the office uses the Student Discipline Procedures to review and respond to the alleged behavior.
