All students are expected to conduct themselves as responsible members of the university community and to respect the rights of their fellow citizens. SVSU regulations may apply to student’s behavior off-campus as well as on campus. Violations of the regulations may result in disciplinary action by both the University and civil authorities.

Students may be charged through the disciplinary process for the actions of guests who violate provisions of this code.
The mission of the Office of Student Conduct Programs is to enhance student learning, personal development, and a student’s role as a responsible citizen in an ethical community that is conducive to and focused on academic and personal success.
