CENTER FOR STUDENT CONDUCT
The Center for Student Conduct and Conflict Management Services organizes and coordinates RIT's non-academic disciplinary process. The office resolves many student misconduct cases and oversees the implementation of non-academic disciplinary sanctions, ranging from "Warning" to "Expulsion." All RIT official student conduct records are kept in this office. In addition to administrative handling of student misconduct cases, the Center for Student Conduct and Conflict Management Services also is home to RIT Mediation Services, which provides students, faculty and staff a positive way to deal with conflict resolution, an Advocacy Program providing students accused of misconduct trained faculty/staff members to accompany them to a student conduct hearing, and a new offering, a Conflict Coaching (helping students deal with conflicts in a more positive, educative way). It is also home to Restorative Conferencing, a community-based approach to conduct. The office also coordinates the Student Behavior Consultation Team (SBCT), RIT’s post-crisis response team that handles cases of students who exhibit behaviors that are disconcerting, bizarre or threatening. This team can be accessed by any member of the RIT faculty or staff for consultation.
