Standards of Student Conduct


Retaliation is any conduct which serves as a reprisal with the actual or perceived intent of causing physical or psychological pain, fear, or intimidation to an individual who has initiated a complaint (any violation of the General Code of Student Conduct) with the institution. Retaliation includes, but is not limited to, unwelcome or repeated contacts by telephone, by letter, by electronic communication, in person, or by third party; damaging or vandalizing personal property; offensive acts/gestures; overt threats, whether or not they were actually carried out; or any conduct that would instill fear and trepidation in the victim.
