Disciplinary Procedures

The University Judicial Process and the Office of Residence Life and Housing, serve an important role in protecting individual rights and University interests, developing citizenship, and providing procedural fairness to students accused of violations of established standards of conduct.

Tenets of Judicial Affairs

  • To regard each student as an individual, deserving individual attention, consideration, and respect.
  • To consider the facts fully and carefully before resolving any case.
  • To speak candidly and honestly to each student.
  • To hold each student to a high standard of behavior, both to protect the campus community, and to promote student moral development.
  • To contribute to the educational mission of the University by designing policies, conducting programs, and offering instruction that contribute to the intellectual and moral development of the entire student body.

The mission of the Morgan State University Student Judicial System (SJS) is to facilitate the social and intellectual development of students by adjudicating violations of the Code of Student Conduct. As such, the SJS functions as an aspect of the University's educational process.

The goals of the Judicial System are:

  1. to promote a campus environment that supports the overall educational mission of the university;
  2. to protect the University community from disruption and harm;
  3. to encourage appropriate standards of individual and group behavior;
  4. to foster ethical values and civic virtues.

All violations of policies and/or procedures contained in the Residence Life Handbook are considered violations of the Code of Student Conduct, and any violators shall be subject to referral to the Office of Student Judicial Affairs.

All residents are expected to adhere to the Code of Student Conduct as well as Residence Life policy.

All repeated offenses will be referred to the Chief of Judicial Affairs and will be dealt with more severely.
