Student Conduct and Community Standards

Welcome to Student Conduct and Community Development in the Office of the Dean of Students. As authorized by the Board of Regents of New Mexico State University, the Office of the Dean of Students is responsible for the administration and facilitation of the student conduct process.

 The mission of the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards is to encourage the development and well-being of all students. This is accomplished by promoting personal reflection, fostering accountability, and educating students and campus partners as to their individual rights and responsibilities within the university community.

Members of the Office of Student Conduct & Community Standards investigate and adjudicate cases of student misconduct, working with the university community to ensure consistency with regard to student discipline matters.

As a part of the Department of Student Life, this office is responsible for receiving and maintaining reports of student conduct concerns relating to both academic and non-academic student misconduct as well as a database of publications relating to student conduct issues.
