The University's student policies and the overall student conduct process are the responsibility of the
Office for Student Affairs. All alleged violations are handled by the Office of Residence Life or
another designee appointed by the Vice President for Student Affairs and Associate Vice
President for Student Development.
Decisions regarding a student's responsibility, or lack thereof, for the alleged violation will be
based on careful consideration of the available information and evaluated on the basis of
whether it is more likely than not that the student is responsible for the violation. If a student
is found responsible for a violation of University policies or standards of conduct, they may be
assigned a sanction or combination of sanctions. The purpose of these sanctions is to promote
the student's greater self-knowledge, physical and emotional health, and restoration to full
participation in the University of Portland community.
Students found in violation of University policies or
standards of conduct through the conduct process have the opportunity to
request a case review. Case reviews may be submitted by completing a Case
Review Request Form, found below. Criteria for submitting a case review is
found in Life on the Bluff.
