The Office of Community Standards and Student Ethics supports the Jacksonville State University mission by remaining student centered and educational in its disciplinary procedures. The Code of Student Conduct is a way for the University to publicly expect all students (undergraduate, graduate and non-degree seeking) to maintain standards and respect for the University community. Jacksonville State University’s conduct system has authority in all non-academic disciplinary matters. The University reserves the right to discipline students and recognized student organizations for acts of misconduct wherever they occur. The University, at its discretion, may pursue disciplinary action against a student while the student is also subject to criminal proceedings. As a Jacksonville State University community member, students are expected to uphold and abide by all local, state, federal and international laws. Referrals received from any University or police authority, regardless of location, are subject to the possible Code of Student Conduct proceedings for the accused.
As the JSU administration is currently structured, the University's Director for Community Standards and Student Ethics is responsible for implementation and application of this policy:

Sex Based Harassment and Misconduct Policy
