Office of
Student Conduct

Formerly the Office of Student Citizenship


The Office of Student Conduct (OSC) is the department within the Division of Student Life (DSL) responsible for helping students develop and enforce their standards and values.  We do this by facilitating the student conduct process which resolves complaints alleging misconduct, advising student judicial committees within the on-campus student residence halls and FSILGs (Fraternities, Sororities, and Independent Living Groups), and by offering a wide array of workshops, seminars, and presentations to help students and student organizations understand and articulate their values. OSC is the beginning point of all formal complaints against students, interacts with students and faculty on behalf of the Committee on Discipline, and is an impartial resource for all parties in a complaint. These programs and services are designed to promote community standards of behavior and support the academic mission of the Institute by enhancing student’s academic achievement as well as personal and ethical development.


The Office of Student Conduct (OSC) facilitates student growth and learning through an educational conduct process that upholds MIT’s values and community standards. The OSC fulfills our mission by supporting students and collaborating with the Committee on Discipline and campus partners.
