CSES Mission 

The Center for Student Ethics & Standards seeks to foster student accountability and skill development in the areas of conflict resolution, dialogue, identity development and restorative practices. In doing so, we hope to help students develop self-awareness, and ultimately become more responsible, respectful and engaged community members.

Community Standards Program 

The Community Standards Program helps students develop a deeper understanding of their role within any community. This program resolves allegations of student misconduct under the Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities.

Academic Integrity Program 

The Academic Integrity Program supports the academic integrity of the University of Vermont. Violations of the Code of Academic Integrity are any acts which would have the effect of unfairly promoting or enhancing one's academic standing within the entire community of learners.

Intergroup Dialogue Program 

The Intergroup Dialogue Program enables its participants to develop comfort with and skill of discourse of difficult topics toward the end of fostering positive, meaningful, and sustained cross-group relationships.

Conflict Resolution Program 

The Conflict Resolution Program helps on-campus students address differences by engaging in dialogue.

A Quote 

"The biggest educational challenge we face revolves around developing character, conscience, citizenship, tolerance, civility, and individual and social responsibility in our students. We dare not ignore this obligation in a society that sometimes gives the impression that virtues such as these are discretionary. These should be a part of the standard equipment of our graduates, not options."
- National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges
("Returning to Our Roots: The Student Experience." 1997
