Student Rights and Responsibilities
Maintained by K. Taylor
Student Rights and Responsibilities Mission
The mission of the Office of Students Rights and Responsibilities (SRR) is to assist in providing for the safety and well being of the university environment. SRR aids in the growth and development of appropriate student behavior and serves as the management agency for the conduct system at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg.
SRR receives referrals regarding alleged violations of the Student Code of Conduct. Any member of the university community may file charges against a student for an alleged violation of the code. Such charges must be filed in writing with SRR, which reserves the right to initiate or follow-up any investigative leads when there is reasonable belief of possible violations of the code of conduct.
SRR uses fundamental fairness and strives to inspire trust and confidence in the University’s student conduct process. We strongly encourage the assumption of individual responsibility and promote the incorporation of standards of acceptable behavior in a lasting, individualized value system via the student code of conduct. Treating a student with respect, fairness and allowing him or her to be an active part of the student rights and responsibility process is fundamental to the "service" we provide to students and the university community.
