About the Office of Judicial Affairs

The Office of Judicial Affairs educates the campus and adjudicates violations of The Indiana University Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct hereinafter referred to as The Code. The office advocates for students.

The goals of the office are |

  • To promote a campus environment that supports the overall education of the university
  • To protect the university community from disruption and harm
  • To encourage appropriate standards of individual and group behavior
  • To foster ethical values and civic virtues
