Student Conduct and Community Standards

The Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards (OSC&CS) promotes a safe and scholarly community by protecting student right(s), providing student(s) and organization(s) opportunity for growth, learning, and reflection when they act in a manner inconsistent with community standards, and fostering a happy and healthy community by providing education on the UC Student Code of Conduct and the Bearcat Bond.

The Bearcat Bond

As a member of the University of Cincinnati, I will uphold the principles for a Just Community and the values of respect, responsibility, and inclusiveness. I will promote the highest levels of personal and academic honesty and aspire continuously to better myself, the Bearcat community, and the world.

COVID-19 Response

The OSC&CS is dedicated to keeping the entire Bearcat community safe. In support of the University of Cincinnati's response to COVID-19, our office will enforce all COVID-19 safety measures and protocols through the processes outlined in the Student Code of Conduct.

We ask that each member of our community review the university's webpage related to COVID-19 for additional information about the university's response to the pandemic and the safety measures and protocols put in place. You can visit that webpage by clicking here

Specific information about safety measures, including the requirements related facial coverings, social distancing, mass gatherings, and more, can be found on the above linked webpage and selecting the "Campus Safety Measures" Tab.
