The mission of High Point University is to deliver educational experiences that enlighten, challenge, and prepare students to lead lives of significance in complex global communities. The Office of Student Conduct supports this mission through the enforcement of the Student Guide to Campus Life policies (Code of Conduct, Honor Code, Bias Policies). The Office of Student Conduct supports the well-being of students by providing a fair and unbiased system of accountability and conflict resolution. We encourage the development of a student’s personal learning and growth through educational and reflective sanctions.
The Office of Student Conduct is responsible for adjudicating the High Point University Code of Conduct as well as the High Point University Honor Code. The Director of Student Conduct is the University’s Chief Conduct Administrator and oversees Student Life staff who adjudicate alleged violations of the University Policy. They are responsible for the management of both the non-academic (Code of Conduct) and academic (Honor Code) conduct systems.
The Office of Student Conduct reviews incident reports and conducts investigations to ensure that all members of the High Point University community receive equitable treatment, education and accountability in regard to the High Point University Code of Conduct and Honor Code. Students may be referred to the Student Conduct Court, comprised of student and faculty justices who hear alleged violations of University Policy and determine levels of responsibility and outcomes.
The Student Conduct Court process is entirely student-driven and does not involve legal representation at any level with the exception of Title IX related incidents.
