Student Advisors within the Conduct Process

UPUA's Student Conduct Advisors is run by students for students, assisting those who have issues regarding a code of conduct violation. Examples of violations include, but is not limited to, those related to drugs, drug paraphernalia, alcohol and academic integrity.

While the conduct process may be challenging at times, requesting an advisor is easy. Seeking assistance from an advisor is optional, but strongly encouraged as they are a great resource for information and as a support system throughout the conduct process.

Note that advisors may not provide a student with any legal advice, however they are trained in Penn State's Student Code of Conduct, University procedures, sanctions that may follow a violation, etc. Advisors may answer any questions that students have, advise the party in the preparation and presentation of sharing information, advise the party in the preparation of any appeals or sanction reviews, and accompany the student in any conduct proceedings.

Advisor meetings may be requested via email at upuastudentconductadvisors@gmail.com or walk-in visits at the UPUA Office located in 314 HUB from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. every Monday - Friday. You may also schedule an appointment at sites.psu.edu/conductadvisors.
