The Office of Student Conduct serves as a valuable resource for the University community by promoting a safe living and learning environment.

Penn State identifies unacceptable student behavior in a document called the Code of Conduct. Familiarize yourself with the expectations of the Code of Conduct and allow it to guide you through your daily decision-making processes in and out of the classroom. If you know what's considered acceptable behavior, then you're taking the first step in making that a way of life. The judicial process begins when students don't uphold or ascribe to the ideals of the Code of Conduct.

 

Do you ROAR?

At Penn State Beaver, we embrace the Penn State Principles. We've provided additional information and resources for members of the campus community to use as they integrate these ideals into their everyday lives.
