Our Mission

The University acknowledges that students have rights and responsibilities as members of the Appalachian State University community and that the University has expectations regarding the behavior of its members which extend beyond the classroom into all aspect of life. The purpose of this site is to educate and to make available the necessary information regarding expected conduct of the students of Appalachian State University.

The mission of the Office of Student Conduct is to educate students about community standards, promote student learning and accountability, and facilitate the development of thoughtful and responsible individuals. Through the Code of Student Conduct, the Office of Student Conduct strives to reduce and prevent behavior that undermines student academic success and that negatively detracts from the educational mission of the University; to improve the health and safety of students and the community; to provide timely support and resources for students; and to prevent violence in and around the University campus.
