The Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities supports SUNY Broome’s mission to support all members of the learning community by creating access to inclusive, diverse educational experiences.
The Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities, through the administration of the Student Code of Conduct, addresses student behavioral problems in a developmental and educational manner with the goal of fostering the SUNY Broome values of inquiry, respect, integrity, trust, and equity. This office ensures a fair and impartial administration of the disciplinary process while educating students about their responsibilities and protecting the rights of all members of the SUNY Broome community.
Students with documented disabilities may request an accommodation to assist them with the student conduct process (i.e. requesting an interpreter, notices in braille, etc.) The Dean of Students Office, in consultation with the Accessibility Resources Office (ARO) will take reasonably appropriate measures to ensure equity in the student conduct process. Please contact the Accessibility Resources Office at +1 (607) 778-5150 or by email at ARO@sunybroome.edu to provide documentation of disabilities.
Student Conduct Philosophy
The student conduct process is designed to enforce college policy and residence hall regulations while reinforcing the College’s educational mission. Community living requires standards of conduct, cooperation, negotiation, and respect for all community members, including students and staff. We are committed to facilitating individual student success and accountability through a fair and engaging process centered around developmental exercises and conversations which may lead to behavioral consequences, and when necessary, separation from the college. The student conduct process functions cooperatively with Academic Affairs, Athletics, the Office of Housing, Counseling Services, the SUNY Broome Department of Public Safety, and local police and emergency response agencies. A student may be referred to a Student Conduct Administrator for an alleged policy violation.
All individuals are responsible for their behavior while a member of the SUNY Broome community. This includes students, guests, and/or visitors. Individuals will be held responsible for their behavior that takes place both on and/or off campus.
Students are also accountable for the actions of others they deliberately incite or encourage to commit a violation of policy. Students may also be responsible for being aware of a policy violation and not reporting it to a SUNY Broome staff member. Students are expected to contact SUNY Broome Community College staff, including Public Safety, should they be a witness to any adverse behaviors.
Students, who have guests and/or visitors not affiliated with SUNY Broome, must inform them of the rules and regulations. Students may be held accountable for their guest’s actions.
