Office of Student Conduct
A Message from the Director
Welcome back Hilltoppers!
We have worked hard over the past 6 months planning your return with the highest priority being protecting the health and safety of our faculty, staff, and students and minimizing the potential spread of disease within our WKU and Bowling Green community, while maintaining an environment conducive for learning.
What is of the utmost importance to our office is that you are following the Hilltopper Pledge.
As a student here on the Hill, you have both a personal and shared responsibility to help one another as it relates to the spread of this virus.
I would like to ask that you take the pledge to minimize the spread of the virus and limit the impact it can have on your on-campus experience.
As we continue to provide guidance that promotes the Health and Safety of campus and its community members, it is essential to read and adhere to policies and procedures which may have evolved in response to COVID-19.
You are responsible for complying with the rules, policies and regulations contained within the Code of Student Conduct, as well as the policies pertaining to COVID-19 in the Healthy on the Hill guidelines and your class syllabus. In addition, any additional law or government ordinance not listed within the guidelines or pledge are also required to be followed.
The success of our reopening, will only be possible through the cooperation of our community members. It is imperative that all members of the University community acknowledge, and act in accordance with the guidelines and exercise good bystander intervention practices by educating and holding each other accountable about the guidelines included below.
This pledge is a commitment to our Hilltopper community that establishes a shared responsibility to understand both the risks of transmission of the virus and the actions we all must commit to in order to keep ourselves, the WKU community, Warren County healthy.
In addition to the standard health and safety policies as outlined in the Big Red Restart Plan, ALL students are required to comply with all health and safety laws, orders, ordinances, regulations and health and safety guidance adopted in our plan as it relates to COVID-19.
This guidance will be updated as the information is made available and as information related to the virus evolves and may include, but is not limited to:
- social distancing at all on-campus locations including residence halls,
- limitations on mass/social gatherings (10 or less),
- wearing a face covering, indoors and when 6 ft is not possible
- following posted entry/exit directions, and social barriers
- proper handwashing and other hygienic recommendations
- disinfection protocols,
- and follow quarantine and self-isolation requirements.
As always, our office will be here to help! We will do our best to keep you up to date update with information about important information (see our tab for COVID-19 resources) for useful information for students, especially as the situation evolves.
The Office of Student Conduct understands that some students may have specific circumstances related to our office, which may require special attention. The office is committed to continue working with students to achieve the most satisfactory outcome possible in a timely manner during these unique times.
We understand that there may be many questions about details surrounding the transition to virtual instruction, and administrative processes to provide you service. We are here to help answer those questions as it relates to your case.
Our operations this semester will reflect our first priority, the health and well-being of our students and the WKU community, and we are immediately focused on ensuring our students are safe and in a position to successfully resume your academic careers. :
This Fall semester we will continue to work hard to answer your questions, respond to your concerns in a timely manner.
