Judicial Affairs Changes Official Name

The Office of Student Conduct and Integrity has changed its name from Judicial Affairs to better reflect its mission. The switch also will align with governing documents, such as Executive Order 1098 and the Student Conduct Code, which refer to individuals who execute the disciplinary process as “student conduct administrators.” In addition to including “student conduct” in the name, the inclusion of the word “integrity” also reflects the office’s mission to protect student rights, uphold the integrity of the academic community, and to foster ethical development. For more information about the Office of Student Conduct and Integrity, visit Building 26-133, contact Ashe at seashe@cpp.edu or (909) 869-6985.
