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 incident of reported misconduct may have multiple violations under one type of misconduct or may constitute a violation under more than one type of misconduct. Additionally more than one student may be involved in each incident reported.
