Student Conduct

Students studying in Rochester are subject to the University of Minnesota Rochester (UMR) campus procedures for potential violations of the code.

Potential conduct violations can be resolved through informal conversations and resolution, or through a formal hearing process. Both processes are based on the concepts of respect for all community members, education through the disciplinary process and fundamentally fair treatment of students.

Reports of potential violations of the code, or other concerns about students, should be submitted using the appropriate form Care Report or General Incident Report, and a member of the Student Conduct Team, Care Team or Title IX Team will follow-up accordingly.


The Student Conduct Team is made up of the following people. All members of the Team can be contacted about any student conduct questions generally, although each also has a more specific area of focus.

  • Dr. Norman Clark, Administrative Director of Academic Programs, 507-258-8208: Academic integrity

  • Mariah Pederson, Interim Residential Life Director, 507-258-8028: Residential life

  • Javier Gutierrez Assistant Vice Chancellor for Student Success, Engagement, and Equity, 507-258-8106: Title IX Coordinator for students
