Educational Sanctioning Process

During a case review, if a student is found responsible, they may be sanctioned to participate in one of the educational programs through the Office of Student Accountability and Restorative Practices or its programming partners.

We believe that students are less likely to continue causing harm to themselves and/or the community if they have an opportunity to learn about campus policy, substance abuse, their personal values, healthy decision making, and their role in a campus and global community.

We strive to consider each student’s individual needs, as well as the needs of the campus community, when determining the best fit sanctioned program.

For detailed information about sanctioning and programs, refer to JMU Student Handbook.

Honor Council Sanctions

Students may be assigned to either the Values in Action workshop or the Civic Learning Site Experience program by the University Honor Council as part of their penalties for violating the JMU Honor Code. For more information, refer to the JMU Honor Council.

Good assessment and evaluation practices support the success of students, programs, and institutions through clearly communicated learning outcomes, solid methodology, and the informed used of data. Assessment and evaluation’s importance to the field of student affairs continues to grow every day. For more information, see our section on Assessment Practices.
