Student Conduct and Community Standards (SCCS) partners with many offices on campus to encourage students to be knowledgeable about the University's policies and the possible consequences if not followed.
UTSA SCCS believes the most successful students are those who inform themselves of the University's policies and resources for prevention. We are dedicated to the level of student support necessary to learn skills in citizenship, responsibility, and true membership of an academic community.

Our office attends, hosts, and participates in University events in order to educate our students on University policies (e.g., New Student Orientation, Hazing Prevention Training, Homecoming, Roadrunner Days, and many others).

Outreach and student support are offered in several ways:

  • Faculty may request presentations to a class ranging in topics from scholastic dishonesty and classroom behavior, to alcohol and other drugs.
  • Students, staff, and faculty can call or visit our office with their specific concerns and questions. Our door is open.
  • All university community members can pick up information from our office or during campus events that can be helpful in addressing a friend or classmate for who they are concerned.
