Office of the Dean of Students

Student Conduct

The Office of the Dean of Students is responsible for administering and interpreting the University of Northern Iowa Student Conduct Code. This includes receiving reports of alleged misconduct, ensuring that students receive due process and fair treatment throughout the hearing process, and maintaining students' disciplinary records.

When incidents happen and University of Northern Iowa students are involved, the Office of the Dean of Students is the main university entity that works with students to resolve disciplinary matters. Students, faculty, and staff who believe there has been a violation can contact our office to discuss options available for reporting incidents or can report the allegation of student misconduct online.

Students of Concern

What is a student concern?

A student concern is a situation or experience that inhibits the student's ability to function well in the University environment. Student concerns may include but are not limited to:

  • A health or other condition that requires a long absence from the University.
  • A mental or emotional health condition that causes the student to be a threat to self or others.
  • Behavior that is disruptive to the educational environment.
  • A traumatic event experienced by a student.

If danger is immediate, call 911 or on campus 9-911. If you believe there is an urgent situation with a student, call the Counseling Center at 273-2676 and they will consult with you about what to do.

Report a Concern About a Student

Faculty, staff, students or others who are concerned about the behavior of a student that is potentially dangerous to self or others, or is disruptive are encouraged to report or discuss the concern with an appropriate University representative. If you have a concern about a student, confidentiality laws don't prevent you from reporting the concern. Urgent or crisis situations may include, but are not limited to:

  • A risk of suicide
  • A threat of harm to others
  • Severely disorganized, psychotic or out-of-control behavior
  • Trauma, such as sexual assault or the death or injury of someone close

You may report a concern about a student with the Student Concern Form.
