Student Non-Academic Misconduct Statistics

Student non-academic misconduct (NAM) statistics are reported annually to the Audit and Risk Committee of the Board of Trustees and are publicly provided below. Note that each case of reported misconduct may be assessed as involving:

  • violations of more than one type of misconduct;
  • multiple violations under one type of misconduct.
