Disciplinary Sanction Community Service (D.S.C.S.)

PROGRAM MISSION:   The mission of the Disciplinary Sanction Community Service (D.S.C.S.) program is to promote University community standards of behavior and student learning through discipline that is creative and thought-provoking while maintaining the integrity of the judicial process. The D.S.C.S. program accomplishes its mission by providing programs and services that:

  • foster personal learning, growth and development and aid in the development of mature and ethical decision-making.
  • hold students accountable for their sanctions and the standards of expectations established by the Student Code of Conduct.
  • help students learn appropriate behaviors and the consequences for unacceptable and/or inappropriate behaviors through the use of personal reflection and critical thinking skills.
  • promote social responsibility through participation in service/volunteer activities. 

    The Disciplinary Sanction Community Service Program (D.S.C.S.) is an extension of the Student Code of Conduct Judicial Board that assigns and monitors community service sanctions. Community Service provides an opportunity for the student to contribute positively to their community. Depending upon the violation, the following community service may be assigned:

    • Marijuana 101 or Alcohol 101 on-line course.  Student is required to pay $40 for course.
    • Completion of Pre-reflection and Post-reflection supplements
