COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information
In order to promote social distancing to limit the spread of COVID-19, the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards (SCCS) is currently operating remotely. Our commitment to serving our students and the greater university community continues. We will update this information as our circumstances change. If you have additional questions after reading this page, please contact SCCS at firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our staff members will do their best to assist you.
Is SCCS still open?
Although staff may be working remotely, our work continues. Staff members are available as usual during normal business hours, but reachable only by email or Microsoft Teams.
My conduct case is still open and unresolved. What will happen?
We are proceeding with our work. We are conducting meetings by phone and Microsoft Teams. We appreciate your understanding as we adjust our processes to meet these ever-changing circumstances.
I had an Administrative Conference scheduled. What happens now?
We are currently conducting all Administrative Conferences via Microsoft Teams or phone. Check your “@uoregon.edu” email address for a Microsoft Teams invitation and expectations for participating in a virtual Administrative Conference. If you need to schedule a phone conference, or have other concerns about a virtual Administrative Conference, please contact your case manager directly.
I have sanctions due soon. What should I do?
We understand that other circumstance may be affecting our students’ ability to complete their sanctions on time. Your case manager will work with you to develop a plan to complete your sanctions. Please email your case manager directly to request an extension or modification of your sanctions. If you can, continue to work diligently to complete your sanctions on time.
I have a student conduct related hold on my student account. What should I do?
You should email your case manager directly for assistance with student conduct related holds. If you are unsure about who is your case manager, please check your “@uoregon.edu” email account for Maxient Correspondence from your case manager prior to contacting SCCS for assistance. If you still need assistance, please email email@example.com with your full name, your student ID number, and a screenshot of your “View Holds” screen in DuckWeb.
I need to report an incident or make a complaint. What should I do?
As always, we ask you to submit an incident report or complaint through our online Maxient forms: General Conduct Concerns, Academic Misconduct, and Title IX and Other Discrimination. You may use these forms to report an incident or alleged violation of the University of Oregon Student Conduct Code. Our first concern is the safety and well-being of our students. Please be aware, these forms are not monitored outside of university business hours. If you are reporting an immediate danger to the health and safety of yourself and/or others, please call UOPD at 541-346-2919 or dial 911.
I need to request my student conduct records. What should I do?
Our office can process your request virtually. Please refer to the Conduct Records Request Process. We will not be able to respond to faxed or physically mailed requests or to send responses via fax or physical mail until further notice. Government agencies interested in having a conduct/disciplinary check completed for security clearance should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I called the main telephone number (541-346-1140), but no one answered. What should I do?
The best way to contact our office is via email, either email@example.com or by emailing your case manager directly. While we are monitoring the main phone number, staff may not be able to answer when you call. We’ve found that students are often hesitant to leave a voicemail and instead prefer to call back frequently until a staff member is able to answer the phone. A better strategy is leaving a voicemail message with the following information: (1) your full name, (2) your student ID number, (3) a callback number, and, (4) the reason for your call.

As a member of the university community, it is your responsibility to know your rights and fulfill these expectations. The Student Conduct and Community Standards office is committed to supporting all students in that process.
It is our responsibility to establish the community standards and procedures necessary to maintain and protect an environment conducive to learning and in keeping with the educational objectives of the University of Oregon.
We serve the important role of upholding the standards of the university community through the administration of an educational and student-centered conduct process. In this process, we educate students about self-accountability, social responsibility, and academic integrity. Students are provided opportunities for personal reflection about decisions and how to make better choices in the future. We encourage students to consider the impact of their actions on themselves, their peers, and the greater community. Sanctions are individually developed with the goal of promoting critical thinking, repairing potential harms, and assisting students to become productive, global citizens.
We are committed to facilitating this learning in a fair, unbiased, and consistent manner, where every student is treated with dignity and respect and is afforded all procedural protections afforded by the Student Conduct Code.
If you have any questions, or would like information about getting involved, please feel free to contact us by phone 541-346-1140, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit our office located in Oregon Hall Suite 185 during business hours Monday–Friday 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
