Dean of Students

Office of Community Standards

At St. Cloud State University, we work to maintain an academic community that promotes the intellectual, personal, social, and ethical development of its students. To achieve this, the University expects all members of the educational community to create safe environments conducive for the learning, growth, and success of all. The St. Cloud State University Student Code of Community Standards documents our commitment to upholding these standards and expectations. It is the responsibility of the Office for Community Standards to resolve incidents where behaviors do not align with our shared commitment to building a safe campus environment.

Student Code of Community Standards

St. Cloud State University Students are responsible for knowing the information, policies, and procedures outlined in the Student Code of Community Standards. This policy and process ensures both fair and educational processes for determining responsibility when student behavior may not have aligned from our shared expectations and provides appropriate educational sanctions when a student, student organization, or club has not met these standards as set forth in the Student Code of Community Standards. Every effort will be made to balance student, student organization, or club needs and rights with the welfare of the University community.

The University reserves the right to make changes to this code as necessary and once those changes are posted online, they are in effect.
