Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution is dedicated to encouraging responsible community conduct, educating the UF and Gainesville community, and implementing disciplinary action in situations where violations of the Student Conduct Code have occurred.
When incidents happen, primarily on campus, and UF students are involved, our office is the main university entity that works with students to resolve disciplinary matters. We also ensure that students receive fair treatment in all hearings. Students, faculty and staff who believe there has been a violation can contact Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution at the Dean of Students Office to discuss options available for reporting incidents to the appropriate authorities. Office staff can assist victims of assault or harassment by a University student, and they are also available for educational programs on a variety of related topics.
Students are what drive the University of Florida. Through the disciplinary process, it is our aim to help students understand the impact their behavior has on the global community, and to assist them with making future decisions that lead to personal and professional success.
Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution also provides conflict resolution services that help students resolve disputes in an effective and fair manner. If you find yourself in a dispute with another person these conflict resolution services can provide you with valuable skills to resolve current and future conflicts.
Recent administration of the Student Conduct Adjudication Processes Questionnaire suggests that students have evaluated the student conduct process well above average. Please see our recent results here: NASCAP Results 2008-2009, NASCAP Results 2009-2010, NASCAP Results 2010-2011 and NASCAP Results 2011-2012.

I would say my personal experience with Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution was very fair and a good learning experience.

"...we really respect your professionalism and sensitivity to all parties throughout the hearing. [The student] and I discussed it afterward and we both agreed about how smoothly everything went for everybody-we could not have asked for more. In certain cases, I think the hearing process itself can be therapeutic and I feel that way about this one." - Attorney
