As of June 1, 2014, the Office of Judicial Affairs became the Office of Student Accountability & Restorative Practices (OSARP). After much conversation with campus partners, students, and staff the office feels this name more accurately captures our approach with students and highlights the resources we can provide them. The student conduct field nationally has been changing their language to set itself further from the legal process; we’re excited to take a big step in that direction.
In an effort to advance JMU web technologies effectively and efficiently JMU has been implementing CASCADE, a web content management system (CMS). As part of the implementation process, all JMU websites will be going through a redesign phase. We've already launched the JMU Student Handbook and Civic Learning Programs websites in the new CASCADE system and had great success with them!
In the Fall 2014 semester, we'll be launching our main website with an entirely new navigation system and content to better serve the JMU community. After August 1, 2014 look for our content at:
To better serve the JMU Community, our office will be relocating to the new JMU Student Success Center. We're excited about our new space and joining other Student Affairs departments.
"The Student Success Center is:
- a place of support and community:
helping students make successful transitions into, through, and out of the university through a broad range of programs, services, and resources
- a place of collaborative learning:
helping students become more efficient, effective, and engaged learners who come together with peers, faculty, and staff for educational activities
- a place of inquiry and discovery:
encouraging students to reflect, apply, and engage in "thinking, doing, wondering, figuring out things, predicting and recognizing"
- a place of advising and consulting:
guiding students in making decisions and developing responsibility for their learning, behavior, physical and emotional health, finances, and career"
For more information regarding the new Student Success Center, reference the website at:
Our office in Frederikson Hall will be closed on June 17, 2014 and will reopen on June 20, 2014 in our new location on the second floor of the Student Success Center.
