Judicial Affairs

The judicial affairs function at SUNY College at Old Westbury is responsible for acting on behalf of the College in matters of student discipline. Under the direction of the Dean of Students, the Campus Judicial Officer deals with alleged instances of student misconduct in order to determine how best to resolve these allegations consistent with the goals and mission of the College as an educational and intellectual community.

It is the purpose of the student disciplinary system to further the educational mission of the College by resolving alleged violations of the Code of Student Conduct and other applicable policies regarding student behavior. The processes by which complaints about alleged student misconduct can be resolved are outlined in the Code of Student Conduct.

The judicial affairs function at Old Westbury has twin goals: to help create a safe environment where academic life can flourish; and to promote the development of students. Our student disciplinary process is meant to set the standard for behavior on our campus and to determine a student's standing in the community. It is not meant to replace or substitute for the criminal justice system or other legal avenues. However, the student disciplinary process provides an important additional forum to respond to the interests of the Old Westbury community.

Our processes are designed to educate and, where appropriate, sanction those students who violate our rules. We seek both to promote a student's sense of responsibility by enforcing accountability, and to protect our community by, where necessary, removing or restricting those who may pose a threat to others.

Our intention is to emphasize the peaceful and productive handling of conflict when possible and where appropriate. The Dean of Students and the Campus Judicial Officer encourage your feedback, input and consultation. We strive to be a safe, helpful and professional resource for the entire Old Westbury community.
