Social Misconduct

Social misconduct includes but is not limited to the following:

  • Violations of noise, alcohol, and drug policies
  • Obstruction or disruption of University activities
  • Vandalism
  • Theft (including bike theft and stealing from the bookstore, COHO, University or individuals)
  • Unauthorized entry to ARC and other campus facilities 
  • Providing false information to the University
  • Fraud, misuse of computers and University equipment or property
  • Hazing, harassment, conduct that threatens health and safety, and all forms of violence, including threats of violence and sexual violence 

In short, almost any misconduct that is not academic in nature is characterized as social. In addition to conduct that happens on campus, it is important to note that the University assumes jurisdiction over some types of conduct that happen off campus (left sidebar). Additionally, the University of California takes sexual misconduct very seriously, and has a different set of procedures for handling allegations of this nature (lower left block).
