Student Conduct

The educational experience at St. John’s University is intended to promote academic excellence and personal growth within a healthy learning environment.

We strive to instill the University’s Core Values—Truth, Love, Respect, Opportunity, Excellence, and Service—and to encourage the development of character and fortitude to live by these values.

In such an environment, it is essential that students learn to look critically at their behavior and to accept responsibility when their behavior violates the policies and precepts of conduct at the University. The system for determining alleged violations must be fair and should involve students. Ultimately the system of discipline at St. John’s University is designed to promote a healthy learning environment and to promote human dignity and potential.

The Student Conduct Process is designed to resolve instances of alleged violations of University policies and regulations, and to investigate matters of student conduct in a manner that reflects the Vincentian tradition and the educational mission of St. John's University.

This process is applicable to all students and student organizations, as defined in the Policies. Students and student organizations are responsible for their actions as well as the actions of their guests while on the St. John’s campus, and sanctions may be imposed on the host when the guest violates the Student Code of Conduct.

Student and University Conduct Boards

The Office of Student Conduct is seeking motivated and responsible students to become members of the Student and University Conduct Boards. These Boards hear cases of alleged violations of the Student Code of Conduct.

All students in good standing are invited to submit the Student and University Conduct Boards Application (PDF). For questions about the Conduct Boards, please contact Joshua Rich, Assistant Director of Student Conduct, at
