Are you interested in an opportunity to assist students going through the undergraduate disciplinary process? Apply to become a Disciplinary Advisor today!

Disciplinary Advisors work with students who are under investigation for a possible violation of university policy, and they can also support students who are bringing forward a report of misconduct. They offer information about how the disciplinary process works, advice on how to approach each stage of the process, and can support students in attendance at an Undergraduate Conduct Board hearing.

Apply at http://tinyurl.com/DA16App. Applications are open through Thursday, October 13, 2016.

Dear Undergraduate Student:

The Office of Student Conduct staff welcomes you (back) to Duke!  We know your time is valuable, so with that in mind, here are 10 things to keep in mind this year.  For the overwhelming majority of you, this list will never apply directly to you, so we especially THANK YOU for reading through these items— and perhaps you can be a persuasive voice to your peers in steering them away from some of the negative behaviors described below, should you see them heading down a potentially perilous path.

The 2016-17 edition of The Duke Community Standard: A Guide for Undergraduates has been released.  This handbook outlines expectations for undergraduate student conduct (and for all students as it relates to Sexual Misconduct) and the procedures for investigating and adjudicating alleged violations of them.  All students who live on campus should have received a copy when they moved in.  Students who live off campus may request a copy by emailing conduct@duke.edu or stopping by the 2nd floor of Crowell Hall on East Campus between 8 AM and 5 PM Monday - Friday.

Dear Duke Families,

As I look out my office window, I have the privilege of seeing our students walking (and rushing) by between classes, meals, meetings and study venues. So many things are apparent on the rare occasion that I get to just pause and admire the passersby. I notice that many seem either immune to the winter chill or in denial about the need to wear warmer clothes! I notice that rarely is anyone walking alone. Students travel in pairs, groups and masses! I notice that some kind of technological device is apparently welded to their ears or their palms (hopefully talking or texting with you). But, I also notice how remarkably different they are, reflecting the substantial and wonderful diversity within the Duke student body.

The Office of Student Conduct is recruiting student Disciplinary Advisors for the 2015-16 academic year. Disciplinary Advisors are individuals trained in the undergraduate disciplinary process. They offer information about how the system works, advice on how to approach each stage of the process, and general support to peers. Although primarily supporting students facing some of the most serious alleged violations of academic or non-academic policies, Disciplinary Advisors serve as a resource to all students with questions about community standards or the disciplinary process.

Dear Student:

The Office of Student Conduct staff welcomes you (back) to Duke!  We know your time is valuable, so with that in mind, here are 10 things to remember to help you avoid decisions that could lead to future anxiety as you’re applying for internships, jobs, DukeEngage, study abroad, law school, medical school, or other opportunities where your character and conduct may be reviewed.

1.  You will not be able to study abroad or participate in DukeEngage if you are on disciplinary probation (DP), which is a mid-level response to concerning behavior.  DP is issued, for example, as a sanction for distributing alcohol, smoking marijuana, having a fake ID, engaging in disorderly conduct, and repeated misconduct.

2.  If you are suspended from Duke a permanent notation is made on your transcript.  You must apply for readmission, which is not guaranteed.
