Information to Manage Student Issues


Disruptive/inappropriate Behavior

Courts have ruled that negative action (non-academic) taken against a student must follow processes outlined by the university and must allow for due process.  At WSU, this process is outlined in 8.05 of the Policies and Procedures Manual, the Student Code of Conduct.  Administration of the Code has been designated to the Director of Student Conduct and Community Standards by the President.  Taking action outside this process may expose university and/or personal liability.

Sexual Harassment/Assault

Once you are informed of possible harassment/assault, the university is under obligation to act.  You must notify the designated university staff person immediately.  Do not promise confidentiality.  Encourage individual to report to law enforcement, but do not force them to do so and don’t do it for them.  Do not disclose information to any other individual.
