The Community Concerns Reporting System (CCRS) is a reporting system where students can report perceived mistreatment stemming from one’s ethnic identity, gender identity/expression, skin color, religion, national origin, age, disability, or sexual orientation.


Complainants have the right to request confidentiality of a complaint of perceived mistreatment. The CCRS will attempt to keep complaints private to the extent possible and consistent with legal requirements and/or the university’s requirement to investigate allegations and take appropriate action.

All forms of academic dishonesty including cheating, plagiarism, misrepresentation, obstruction, and submitting without permission work to one course that was completed for another course are violations of academic integrity standards.


  • Students found responsible for a first violation will be required, in addition to any other sanctions, accepted or imposed, to attend an ethics education program or to complete and ethics exercise as assigned
  • If the university conduct file indicates that the student has been responsible for one or more previous violations, the case will be referred for Academic Integrity Board action
  • If a student is found responsible for a violation after graduation and the sanction imposed makes the student ineligible to earn his or her degree, the degree may be revoked
  • Violations of academic integrity standards are considered violations of the university’s Standards of Conduct and will be recorded in the student’s conduct record


A decision reached by an Academic Integrity Panel may be appealed by the student within five business days from the time the hearing decision is made available
