Each year, OSCCS gathers aggregate conduct outcomes for the academic year and shares these data with the Duke Community.
KEY 2020-2021 INITIATIVES
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.
