Framingham State University strives to maintain an educational community environment which fosters academic pursuit, intellectual growth and the development of students who are ethically sensitive and responsible persons.
The University has the responsibility and authority to take proper disciplinary action in response to behavior that threatens or disrupts the mission of the university. The university’s "Judicial Code" is detailed in the "RAM Student Handbook". Included in the "Judicial Code" are the "Student Conduct Code Regulations", the process for "Administration of Discipline for Violation of University Policy", and "Definition of Disciplinary Sanctions".
The goal of Judicial Affairs is to respond to alleged violations of the "General Student Conduct Code Regulations" in a manner which protects the University’s mission and the campus community and which also aids in the development of ethical and responsible students.
It should be noted that the student judicial system conduct proceedings pertain to resolution of alleged violations of the "Student Conduct Code Regulations". Behaviors that violate the student conduct code may also violate criminal or civil law, and as such may also be subject to separate proceedings under the civil and criminal court systems. The student judicial system in no way precludes a person who incurs damage or injury from seeking redress in the civil or criminal courts.
Students are expected to be familiar with university policies and guidelines including those outlined in the "RAM Student Handbook", the "Guide to Residence Living", "Campus Parking Rules and Regulations" and in other official university publications and postings.
The Office of Judicial Affairs is located on the lower level of Corinne Hall Towers. The office may be accessed through the State Street entrance.
