Office of Community Standards
The Office of Community Standards is the division of Student Affairs that is responsible for hearing the cases of Pepperdine University students alleged to have violated the Code of Conduct. The student disciplinary process is based on the assumption that disciplinary procedures, when required, should be an educational process. Disciplinary sanctions are designed to help students develop individual responsibility and encourage self-discipline, to foster a respect for the rights of others, and to protect the rights, freedoms, and safety of members of the University community.
Much of student learning takes place outside of the classroom. Student Affairs departments, including this one, seek to support student learning and development. Click the infographic on the left for a specific list of Student Learning Outcomes of this department.
This web-site serves to inform the Pepperdine community of the disciplinary process, from initial incident report to final appeal. We hope you find it beneficial.
