​Student Conduct Process

The student conduct process at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is an integral part of the educational mission of the university. The University's student conduct system emphasizes the development of each student's acceptance of his/her own personal and social responsibilities. A compassionate and supportive approach to student conduct is employed whenever possible.
