OFFICE OF STUDENT CONDUCT

ALL ACADEMICS, STAFF AND STUDENTS AT UC SAN DIEGO

SUBJECT:    UC San Diego Student Conduct Code revisions

During Spring Quarter 2013, the Office of Student Conduct proposed a set of revisions to the UC San Diego Student Conduct Code. The proposed changes were initially reviewed by the Student Conduct Standards Group. Feedback was received from the greater campus community in an open campus comment period. These changes were approved by Chancellor Khosla and were officially implemented on September 15th, 2013.

The link to this most recent version of the Code is:

Some of the key changes include:

Reintroducing university representatives to the Student Conduct Review (e.g. formal hearing) process.
Adding clarifying language to the grounds of interim suspensions and referencing the university's policy on Free Speech and Advocacy (PPM 510-IX).
Clarifying the definition of hazing.
Adding language allowing for multiple student respondents to participate in a Student Conduct Review when the alleged violations result from the same underlying incident.
Adding language that all information to be presented at a Student Conduct Review must be submitted by the student respondent and the university representative within three days of the review.
