The Office of Student Conduct at Concordia University Irvine is committed to guiding and educating all students to act in accordance with our community expectations in both behavioral conduct and academic integrity. Our goal is to work alongside students throughout their time at CUI, so they can make the most of their university experience while remaining accountable to the university’s policies and community values. Failure to comply with housing or university wide policies will result in a judicial process. There are two primary purposes of the disciplinary process at Concordia University Irvine. The first is to ensure the safety of the University community and its members. The second is to promote the moral and ethical development and personal growth of each individual student. Those who are aware of misconduct are encouraged to report it as quickly as possible to the offices of Student Conduct, Residence Life, Human Resources, and/or the Department of Campus Safety.
Within the Division of Student Affairs, the Office of Student Conduct encourages education and accountability by providing processes designed to uphold the behavioral expectations of the Code of Conduct. With an understanding of the place for both Law and Gospel and through intentional conversations and activities that promote reflective learning, the Office of Student Conduct is committed to fostering a Christ-centered environment in which all members of the community find meaning, dignity, and grace.
All courses and academic work at Concordia University seek to empower students for independent learning, resourcefulness, clear thinking, and perception. All submitted work and activities should be genuine reflections of individual achievement from which the student can derive personal satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment. Academic dishonesty, which includes all forms of plagiarism, cheating, and the offering or receipt of unauthorized aid, subverts these goals.
