If you're not sure about reporting

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 report; typically, investigations do not begin unless a report is filed.

Reports may also be submitted directly to the Director of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution, Maren Turnidge (MarenT@uvu.edu).

Who investigates?

The Director of Student Conduct is responsible for investigating concerns regarding student conduct, and violations of the Student Rights and Responsibilities Code.

Are records kept?


However, not all reports are automatically entered into a student disciplinary record (such as reports of concerns that don't rise to the level of a policy violation).

If a student is found to have violated a policy and a permanent disciplinary record is kept, they still have the option to request that their record be expunged after a certain amount of time and depending on the severity of the violation.

Submit requests to expunge disciplinary records to the Director of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution, Maren Turnidge (MarenT@uvu.edu).

When to submit a report or 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, Maren Turnidge (MarenT@uvu.edu).
