KEY 2020-2021 INITIATIVES

Adaptable Resolution

Adaptable Resolution is a voluntary process which focuses on addressing harm through a structured (but

adaptive) process between affected parties. Adaptive Resolutions work to both support students and address

harm and accountability outside of the formal conduct process. Through Adaptable Resolutions, parties

develop a resolution agreement to address the harm caused and prevent it from happening again. Adaptable

Resolutions do not result in an externally reportable disciplinary record for respondents. The structure of

Adaptable Resolutions varies, but may include a facilitated dialogue, shuttle negotiation, a restorative circle

or restorative conference.

 

Student Conduct Board Expansion

The Student Conduct Board (SCB) is a group of students, faculty, and staff appointed to hear alleged

violations of university policy. The SCB recently expanded to include graduate and professional students. The

SCB is charged with determining whether a student/student group is responsible for a policy violation and if

so, the SCB determines the appropriate university response, including sanction(s). In addition, the SCB

participates in outreach and education to the university community related to the OSCCS and the Duke

Community Standard. The SCB is also involved in various other functions of the OSCCS including the Policy

Review Committee, Monthly In-Service Trainings, and Adaptable Resolutions.
