To promote a greater awareness and understanding of the rules of the student code of conduct and address issues of student academic misconduct and disruption of campus life so that an environment conducive to learning and individual growth can be maintained at Kennesaw State University.
The predecessor of the Kennesaw State University Department of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity (SCAI), (Office of Judiciary Programs), was developed in 1985 to administer and supervise the procedures surrounding alleged infractions of the KSU Student Code of Conduct and other University policies. The SCAI Department strives to assure fair and impartial considerations of misconduct charges against any KSU student through a system of campus hearing boards and other administrative procedures (hearing officers).
The SCAI structure includes hearing officers and hearing boards (University Hearing Panel). Each hearing board is composed of faculty, staff, and student members of the SCAI panel. Members of the panel are trained to hear complaints, arrive at fair and impartial conclusions and deliver clear and direct recommendations. Also, there is a student sexual misconduct/Title IX special panel which is composed of KSU faculty and staff members who receive additional Title IX specific training.
