SCCS CommitteeThe SCCS Committee consists of 4 fac/staff and 4 students who are currently working towards re-writing the UO Student Conduct Code.  This includes the conduct process, jurisdiction, violations, sanctions and the appeal process.  This committee must consider both the rights and responsibilities of accused students, affected parties, as well as the University community as a whole.  This committee helps to identify the community standards to which all students are expected to abide.
