Why am I being contacted by this office for a Community Standards Conference (CSC)? What is a CSC?
Students are contacted by the Office of Community Standards and Student Responsibility if they were involved in an incident that in some way may violate the Student Code of Conduct. The meeting they are scheduled to attend is for a Community Standards Conference (CSC). This is a meeting between a CSSR staff member and the student to discuss the reported incident. During this meeting, students will have the opportunity to share their perspective of events. CSSR staff will discuss the alleged violation, procedural process, and potential outcomes.
Additionally, the CSC is a required meeting. If a student does not attend their scheduled CSC, the CSC will be rescheduled for a second attempt. If a student misses both scheduled meetings, a decision will be made in the student’s absence regarding the outcome of the case.
If unable to attend the SC for any reason, the student should contact their assigned hearing officer to reschedule (Housing Staff or CSSR).
