Welcome to the Office of Student Conduct

Hunter College is committed to cultivating a respectful and safe educational environment and workplace. The Office of Student Conduct is responsible for acting on behalf of Hunter College in matters of student discipline. The office deals primarily with alleged instances of academic integrity and other student misconduct. Our function is to investigate alleged violations of Hunter Colleges and CUNY policies, and when necessary, sanction students who violate Hunter College's rules and policies.

Our goal is to educate students regarding their individual responsibility and accountability, while promoting concepts of fairness and due process. Our hope is that through this process students will come to recognize mistakes and learn from them.

We hope that this website will be useful. Please do not hesitate to contact us and let us know how we may help you.


We would like to remind faculty of student conduct standards and expectations as we begin to settle into distance learning for the spring 2020 semester. Distance education can offer unique challenges for faculty and students and the Office of Student Conduct is here to support you in navigating such matters.

During this time of distance learning, all students are expected to continue to comply with the policies and procedures that are in place to promote academic integrity and appropriate conduct. Most notably, the Henderson Rules or Code of Conduct, the Academic Integrity Policy, the CUNY Sexual Misconduct Policy and CUNY's Policy on Acceptable Use of Computer Resources. Faculty who suspect academic dishonesty should report the allegation to the Office of Student Conduct through our online academic dishonesty reporting form and are encouraged to confer with the student about the matter.

We have outlined suggestions below to assist faculty in this distance learning environment if they have not yet incorporated such elements already:

  • Post all conduct related policies on syllabi and Blackboard
  • Syllabi should be clear regarding what students can or cannot do throughout the course, e.g. cannot utilize wearable devices during exams; cannot seek assistance via external sources not already included in the course; cannot create a shared google document with fellow students, etc...
  • Continue to utilize plagiarism detection software such as turnitin
  • Share academic and supportive resources with students on syllabi and Blackboard e.g. The Rockowitz Writing Center, The Dolciani Mathematics Center, Counseling & Wellness Services, the Office of AccessAbility, etc...
  • Note professional conduct expectations on syllabi and Blackboard regarding participation via online platforms e.g. dressing appropriately, awareness of possibly distracting backgrounds, use of appropriate language, etc...

We hope you find this memo useful. Please feel free to contact us at or with any questions, concerns or further suggestions to expand this guide.

Be well and be safe.

Colleen Barry,


Office of Student Conduct
