The mission of the Student Conduct and Community Standards Office is to support Pacific's mission by reviewing and resolving alleged violations of the Student Code of Conduct and University Policies in a fair, honest, and socially just manner that honors the needs and protects the safety of individual students and the Pacific community. Foundational to our work is the education of students through prevention, intervention, and leadership opportunities. The student conduct process is intended to:

  • respond to alleged violations of the Student Code of Conduct and University Policies and Procedures;
  • serve as an educational experience promoting development of the whole student;
  • and provide students with opportunities to become citizen leaders by assuming a central role in the education of fellow students, adjudication of alleged student conduct violations, and development of student conduct policies.

In accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2009, if it is determined that a student residing in a University of the Pacific owned or operated housing facility, who is the subject of a missing person report, has been missing for more than 24 hours, and has not returned to campus, the following actions will be taken:

  • The University will attempt to contact the student using the student's personal emergency contact information.
  • In the event a student is unable to be reached, the University's Department of Public Safety will file a missing person's report with the local law enforcement agency and a representative from the Division of Student Life will notify the student's emergency contact person(s) on file with the university.
  • If a student is under 18 years of age, and not an emancipated individual, the University will notify a custodial parent or guardian not later than 24-hours after the time that the student is determined to be missing.

All students are encouraged keep in contact with a trusted person, especially if they plan to be away from campus for longer than 24-hours.

Tiger Lore Student Handbook

Student Code of Conduct (Tiger Lore) is provided as information for each student and is designed to supplement the University's catalog and other related publications. It was prepared as a guide to help students make their academic and co-curricular life at the University of the Pacific successful.

Tiger Lore is not meant to be a complete statement of rules, regulations, policies or procedures, nor does it contain a complete list of all programs, services or University Policies. Students are encouraged to read Tiger Lore and keep it available as a reference. It is subject to change at any time as deemed appropriate by the University at its sole discretion. Any such changes may be implemented without prior notice and without obligation, and unless specified otherwise, are effective when made.

Be a Student Conduct Support Person

For student conduct hearings (either with a hearing officer or review board) students may choose to request a support person to help them navigate the process. Students may consult with an advisor. The advisor may provide advice and counsel but during the student conduct review process my not speak on behalf of, or otherwise represent the student (respondent), student conduct hearing officer or board.

Current students, faculty, or staff may act as an advisor. Off-campus individuals and those with no affiliation to the University may not act as advisors. Current faculty or staff may not act as advisors to family members who are respondents.
