Information to Manage Student Issues

Disruptive or 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 Assistant Vice President for Student Advocacy, Intervention and Accountability by the President.  Taking action outside this process may expose university and/or personal liability. To report disruptive or inappropriate behavior, please fill out an incident report online marked as conduct or contact:
