The Student Code of Conduct
Every student member of the Holy Names University community has access to the Student Handbook. The student handbook specifically outlines what the Student Code of Conduct means to the Holy Names University community, serving as a guideline for students to follow the University’s standards of behavior. When a student violates the Student Code of Conduct, the student is documented by a university official and will potentially go through a student conduct hearing.
The Dean for Student Development & Engagement and the Director of Residence Life oversee all matters of student conduct. When an Incident Report (IR) is submitted, the form is then processed by the Dean or Director. The Dean or Director then decides whether or not a conduct hearing is necessary. If a hearing is necessary, the student(s) involved receive a letter informing him/her of the date and time of the hearing. Students are given a minimum of 72 business hours’ notice from the time the letter is sent to the time of the hearing. After the hearing, the student(s) will be notified within 72 business hours of the outcome of the case. If the student(s) must fulfill a sanction, this information will be detailed in the letter.
