At the heart of the restorative justice model is the attempt to repair harm and foster healing for both the conduct code violator and the campus community. Through a process of cooperation, the relevant stakeholders can often move forward with renewed trust and restored relationships.
What happens when a student violates this trust and engages in plagiarism, cheating, falsifying research data, or lying about internship or contact hours? How should a professor handle this? What role does campus conduct play in this process? At what point should a student be dismissed from a program? How can this separation meeting occur in a way that is safe for the staff and student alike?
This online seminar is designed to provide student affairs administrators, residential life staff, and student conduct professionals with an understanding of the restorative justice model of student discipline. Participants will compare and contrast this model to the developmental and punitive frameworks for addressing student behavior. This seminar will also assist conduct officers in identifying the relevant stakeholders and transforming the relationship between the conduct violator and the campus community through a cooperative, healing process.
