Office of Student Conduct
Welcome to the Office of Student Conduct. The Office of Student Conduct is responsible for addressing violations of University policy through the University disciplinary process and ensuring that students' rights are applied fairly and consistently. The system is intended to emphasize student learning through a developmental process that holds individuals accountable for their actions and provides opportunities for personal growth and respect for others.
Resources and information including policies and educational programs are provided for Duquesne students, faculty and staff, as well as for parents and visitors to campus.
Attention Students: We want you to be a successful and responsible member of our community throughout your time at Duquesne. As a member of the Duquesne community, the University expects you to abide by the Student Handbook and associated Duquesne University Student Expectations for COVID-19 (effective July 2020), when on- and off-campus. Please be aware of Senior Vice President for Student Life Dr. Douglas Frizzell's emails concerning COVID-19 Off Campus Gatherings and Consequences (sent August 20, 2020), and the Update to COVID-19 Off Campus Gatherings (sent August 24, 2020).
