Office of Student Conduct and Community EngagementMenu
Faculty and staff members are often the first to see behavior or indicators that a student may be struggling. By utilizing your insights and observations, and relying on the wide range of expertise in this community, we can work together to help students and to keep the community healthy and safe. This information is provided to assist you in identifying students in crisis and referring those situations to appropriate staff members for follow-up.
How to File a Complaint
A University complaint can be filed against any student or student organization. Faculty members may file a complaint by clicking here. The complaint will be forwarded to the Office of Student Conduct and Community Engagement for review.
When filing a complaint, it is very important that all documentation and other evidence associated with the complaint (e.g., Department of Public Safety reports, police reports, or witness statements) be included. More than one complaint can be filed regarding the same incident. It is absolutely necessary that all complaint forms be submitted as soon as possible. The complaint form will be considered complete only when it is submitted by the complainant.
The Student Conduct Process (non-academic)
The Office of Student Conduct and Community Engagement is responsible for adjudicating cases alleging violation of the Student Code of Conduct by students of Texas A&M International University.
Once a complaint is filed with the Office of Student Conduct and Community Engagement, the director of SCCE will determine whether or not the complaint brought forward demonstrates sufficient evidence of misconduct to merit further investigation and/or the initiation of the student conduct process.
Upon determining that a complaint merits further investigation, the Office of Student Conduct and Community Engagement will contact the alleged student. The alleged student will be called to participate in a administrative conference with the Director of Student Conduct and Community Engagement to discuss the allegation(s) and determine whether a violation occurred. If a violation occurred, student will elect either to accept responsibility of charge or proceed with an administrative hearing.
An administrative hearing is usually with the Associate Vice President of Student Affairs that reviews the case information and determines if student violated the TAMIU Student Code of Conduct. If student is found responsible, sanctions are imposed.
