Student Conduct

Welcome to the Office of Student Conduct

We promote good citizenship by educating students on behavioral expectations here at Pitt. When student misconduct occurs, we oversee impartial judicial procedures and opportunities for personal development and improvement. We aim to develop responsible, conscientious young adults who are committed to maintaining a safe and respectful campus environment.


The mission of Student Conduct is to process violations of the Student Code of Conduct. By processing these violations, we seek to provide a safe learning environment and opportunities for students to learn from their own behavior and the behavior of others. Student Conduct supports this mission, the values identified in the Pitt Promise, and the educational mission of the University of Pittsburgh by:

  • Developing, disseminating, and enforcing campus regulations
  • Providing a fair and consistent conduct process
  • Assessment as normative practice
  • Mentoring students through meaningful interactions
  • Educating students about the effects of their behavior on themselves and those around them
  • Promoting healthy decisions
  • Fostering safe and inclusive communities both on and off campus
  • Connecting students with support services in order to encourage their personal, social, and academic growth
  • Collaborating with faculty, staff, students, and the campus community to manage and address conduct matters
