About Student Conduct
The Office of Student Conduct is the “Judicial Umbrella” at Western Kentucky University. Within the Division of Enrollment and Student Experience, direct supervisory jurisdiction of student behavior matters involving violations of The Student Handbook is assumed by the Director of Student Conduct who serves as the senior conduct officer of the University. Under the direction of the Dean of Students, the WKU Student Handbook will be reviewed every two years.
In order to foster an environment where student learning and growth can be maximized, Office of Student Conduct has a responsibility to ensure that disruptions to the University Community are handled in an educational, fair, and timely manner.
In an effort to achieve these goals while keeping our community an environment conducive for learning, the office holds students accountable for their behavior who may violate the WKU Student Code of Conduct – in and outside of the classroom – whether on university property or off-campus.
