The Student Conduct System at the University of Dayton is a process for addressing allegations of violations of the Standards of Behavior and Code of Conduct. The system provides fundamental fairness to all parties concerning allegations of misconduct and encourages students to take responsibility for themselves and their community.

The Student Conduct System is rooted in four key University documents. This system is informed by national standards in the field of college student conduct administration. It also conforms to local, state, and federal laws and embraces the University Statement of Dignity. These University documents are as follows: 

  1. The University Mission Statement 
  2. The Commitment to Community 
  3. The Mission of the Division of Student Development 
  4. The Mission of the Office of Community Standards and Civility (CS&C) 

The key concepts in these founding documents include an understanding of the common good, the integration of learning and living, the value and dignity of every person, the education of the whole person, the pursuit of academic achievement, fundamental fairness, the expectations of civility and legal responsibility, and the development of character and accountability at a community level.

The Code of Conduct is part of the University of Dayton Student Handbook.  The handbook can be found online at
