The Community Standards and Conduct Office is responsible for the overall coordination of the student conduct process and policies on campus. This includes the interpretation of policies from UC General Counsel as well as federal and state laws that may aply to students. The Community Standards and Conduct Office works closely with the colleges, residential life staff, campus police, the Title IX/Sexual Harassment Officer and other important resources on campus.

Community Standards and Conduct compiles campus wide statistics on reported rules violations, hate- or bias-motivated incidents and distributes quarterly and annual reports to the campus community.

Community Standards and Conduct is also responsible for maintaining the Student Policies and Regulations Handbook (formerly referred to as the Rule Book), which outlines all policies, regulations and procedures that apply to students and student organizations. Students who violate certain campus policies may be reffered to the Community Standards and Conduct Office for disciplinary action. 

Questions regarding the student discipline process or the Student Policies and Regulations Handbook should be directed to the Community Standards and Conduct Office at (831) 459-1738 or sja@ucsc.edu
