The Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities (OSRR) strives to support the educational mission of Boise State University by helping to create an environment where civil discourse may occur free from discrimination, harassment, threats, or intimidation. OSRR works with students to resolve conflicts in a pro-active, productive manner by offering opportunities to resolve conflicts through the Student Mediation Program. In addition, OSRR works with students, faculty and staff in addressing inappropriate student behavior in conjunction with the procedures set forth within the Student Code of Conduct. OSRR works with faculty and staff who refer students for cheating, plagiarism, disruptive and/or threatening behavior.
The pursuit of higher learning through civil discourse, both in and out of the classroom, is encouraged and welcomed for all who attend the University. OSRR works to create an environment where the University’s Statement of Shared Values is upheld by all members of the University community.
