Requesting an Advisor

Upon request, OSCR staff members will endeavor to find an advisor for a student who requests one. 

Faculty/Staff and Student Conflicts

OSCR offers services that may be useful for some conflicts between students and faculty/staff members. A one-on-one conflict coaching or consultation session between you and an OSCR staff member may be helpful in exploring various approaches to a particular conflict. Other resources for conflicts with faculty members are Academic Deans or Department Chairs in the faculty member’s academic unit, the Ombud’s office, and the Office of Institutional Equity.

Minor in Possession (MIP)

Alcohol and other drug use may constitute a significant health risk with consequences for student academic and personal success.  As described in the Statement, University students are expected to uphold institutional values and maintain a high standard of conduct both on and off-campus.  The University believes it is essential that students involved in alcohol or drug-related incidents learn about resources designed to support their healthy decision-making, well-being, and success.  When given an MIP while off-campus the University will get involved in this incident.
