Scope of the Student Conduct Policy

 

Scope of the Student Conduct Policy

The Student Conduct Policy guides the behavior and expectations of all students at Drew University. The below terms outline the scope of this policy as well as a series of frequently asked questions about what may and may not be addressed under the Student Conduct Policy. For a list of all potential violations, please refer to the list of standards here.

Jurisdiction

The University will exercise jurisdiction over any violation of University policy, including public law, whether the offense is committed on or off-campus. Students who violate the law may also be subject to criminal and/or civil court jurisdictions.  Pending legal cases do not preclude the university from addressing violations under this code.

Actions undertaken by Drew University to address conduct violations will normally go forward even if criminal proceedings are pending and will not be subject to challenge on the grounds that a related legal matter is in process, has been dismissed, or has been reduced. Failure to participate in the University process may result in decisions in absentia, with due weight afforded to any materials submitted by, or related to, the absent party.
