The Student Respect and Empowerment Office, a service of the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance, issues a reminder to full-time undergraduates as final examination season begins that it is here to defend and advocate for students facing charges or suspicion of academic or non-academic misconduct.
“Whether it means helping you access resources or being your defence advocate through the misconduct charges and complaints process, we’re here to help,” says co-ordinator Becka Morisson.
“Beyond plagiarism, cheating, and behavioural code of conduct violations, we can provide support on a range of issues, including interactions with university actors like financial services, residence services, and academic departments.”
Services offered by the Student Respect and Empowerment Office include:
- Advising students of their rights when accused of misconduct
- Helping students navigate the charges, complaints, hearings, and appeals process for academic and non-academic misconduct
- Mediating professor-student conflicts
- Navigating and dealing with sanctions
- Negotiating student-to-student conflicts
- Referring students to additional supports and resources
