Judicial Affairs Philosophy
The Office of University Judicial Affairs encourages students to be responsible members of our community. A responsible student is defined as a student who:
- Values the concept of social responsibility;
- Respects community-established regulations and takes ownership and accepts responsibility for her/his behavior;
- Respects her/himself, personal rights and property of others, and a system of authority;
- Acts honestly, ethically, and with integrity;
- Participates in the formulation and enforcement of community-established regulations/standards;
- Supports a system of due process for all students.
The Office of Judicial Affairs is responsible for adjudicating alleged violations of the Student Code of Conduct. The Student Code of Conduct defines behavior expected of all University of Cincinnati students. The Office of Judicial Affairs is committed to changing the thought and decision-making process of students through educational and developmental sanctions that challenge their decisions as adults.
