Student Conduct and Academic Integrity
Welcome to Student Conduct and Academic Integrity in the Office of the Dean of Students. As authorized by the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System, the Office of the Dean of Students is responsible for the administration and facilitation of the student conduct process.
Our team supports the educational mission of The University of Texas at Austin by upholding the university's standards of student conduct and academic integrity through a fair and objective process. By fostering self-reflection, promoting civility, and encouraging personal responsibility, our goal is that students learn from their mistakes and succeed in their academic endeavors.
When a student may have violated a university rule, our staff investigates as a neutral third party. Students are given the opportunity to present their version of events, and our office decides the appropriate outcome.
Our team also oversees the Student Conduct Advisory Committee and Peer Ambassadors. The Student Conduct Advisory Committee provides our office with feedback and delivers educational outreach to students, faculty, and staff. Peer Ambassadors provide information and support to students about to participate in the conduct process.
The University of Texas at Austin is committed to addressing incidents that impact our campus climate, especially those that are bias-related. The Campus Climate Response Team takes reports of these incidents, and manages the response process. Reporting possible bias incidents improves our ability to systematically identify and respond to such events.
