The Office of Community Standards and Student Responsibility
Welcome! We are glad that you are taking the time to review our website. As a member of the Ohio University community, it is expected that all students will familiarize themselves with the Ohio University Student Code of Conduct, as they are responsible for adhering to the policies both on and off campus. The Office of Community Standards and Student Responsibility interprets and enforces the Student Code of Conduct in several different capacities. The Office of Community Standards and Student Responsibility receives and addresses disciplinary referrals from members of the community, including faculty, staff and students. We inform accused students of our process, their rights, options and potential sanctions.
We are also here to assist those who may have been directly impacted by a student's actions. We can assist in writing referrals, and with informing complainants of our process for addressing their concerns.
As the Director of the Office of Community Standards and Student Responsibility, I encourage you to explore our website and if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact myself or my staff.
Welcome to Ohio University, the best student-centered learning experience in America!
Martha Compton, Director
