Will I be called when my son/daughter is charged with a violation of the Code of Student Conduct?In most situations, we will deal directly with your son or daughter if they have been charged with a violation of the Code of Student Conduct, and will not directly contact you. While we understand you want to be in the know, we do believe that students have the right to make mistakes and learn from them. Most of the situations resulting in conduct action tend to be relatively minor in scope.
The times when we will make a point to contact you are when (a) your son’s or daughter’s safety is at risk; (b) your son’s or daughter’s ability to reside on campus or continue as a Utica College student is in jeopardy; or (c) a pattern of behavior has been established that is likely to put your son or daughter at risk of continuing at Utica College, and working with you as a partner in changing your son or daughter’s behavior would be productive. We are also more likely to contact you if your son or daughter is a minor at the time.
When possible, we encourage your son or daughter to speak with you first, so that you can have the conversation with them before we contact you.
