If you aren’t sure whether or not you should report a concern

Anyone may contact Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution for consultation about a possible concern. Talking with Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution does not obligate a person to file a concern; investigations do not begin unless and until an official concern is filed. Concerns may also be submitted by directly emailing Ashley Larsen,alarsen@uvu.edu.

Concerns should be submitted with concise, factual information including: the incident, the date of incident, the location or class, others involved, how it came to your attention, what has been done with the concern so far, etc.

Who investigates?

The Director of judicial Affairs is responsible for investigating concerns regarding student conduct, and violations of the Student Rights and Responsibilities Code. Investigations may also be assisted by the Student Response Team members.

Concerns should be submitted with concise, factual information including: the incident, the date of incident, the location or class, others involved, how it came to your attention, what has been done with the concern so far, etc.

Please also submit relevant materials, such as: documents, photographs, copy of student’s work, etc.


Are records kept?

Academic misconduct and general misconduct records are usually maintained as either: permanent disciplinary records of adjudicated violations of the Student Rights and Responsibilities Code; or, informational records for minor behavioral concerns or dismissed investigations and are not made part of an official record.


When to submit a concern

In order to accomplish the educational goals of the process, to provide timely due process, and to avoid unnecessary complications to the investigatory process (because witnesses and/or evidence may no longer be available, memories fade, etc.), you are strongly urged to submit your concern immediately upon discovery.

If you with to discuss the process informally, please do not hesitate contact the director of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution.
