Integrity Formation

 

Note on Remote Services (COVID-19)

 

The Office of Student Conduct & Integrity Formation is open, and staff are working remotely in order to promote physical distancing.

Our commitment to serving our students and the university community continues during these unprecedented times. See below for updates from our office: we will update the information on this page if circumstances change.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to reach out to our staff directly for support at integrity@seattleu.edu. You can find our staff information for Student Conduct & Integrity Formation, as well as the Office of the Dean of Students, by clicking here.

I want to report an incident or make a complaint. What should I do?

As always, we ask that you submit an incident report or complaint through our online reporting form. You may use this form to report an incident or alleged violation of the Code of Student Conduct (e.g., substance use, sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, bias-related harassment). Our first concern is the safety and well-being of our students. 

Note that these form submissions are not monitored outside of business hours. If you are reporting an immediate danger to health and safety of yourself and/or others, call 911 or Seattle University Public Safety at 206-296-5911.

My case is still open and unresolved. What will happen?

If your hearing and/or meeting has not yet occurred, please open the letter sent to your @seattleu.edu email address for details and/or contact your assigned Conduct Administrator. You can also email integrity@seattleu.edu

We are proceeding with our usual programs and services through the Zoom platform while still upholding privacy and confidentiality. We are able to utilize screen sharing, breakout rooms, and other features to continue operations virtually. We appreciate your understanding as we adjust our processes.

If you have concerns about a virtual hearing, please contact integrity@seattleu.edu or your assigned Conduct Administrator directly.

I have sanctions due soon. What should I do?

We understand that current circumstances may be affecting students' ability to complete sanctions on time. Your Conduct Administrator can work with you to develop a plan to complete your sanctions.

Previously assigned in-person sanctions (e.g., substance use classes) are now available online. If you have a question about how to register or access the online offering, or have concerns about completion, please contact integrity@seattleu.edu or your assigned Conduct Administrator.

All financial sanctions that were instructed to be paid in Student Center 140 between February 1, 2020 and April 30, 2020 have a new deadline of May 15, 2020. Students, instead, can donate the assigned sanctions to the Uncommon Care at Uncommon Times fund and submit a screenshot of payment confirmation to integrity@seattleu.edu. If students would like to pay by check, they can mail their check to 901 12th Avenue, Student Center 140, Seattle, WA 98122. If you have concerns about payment given current circumstances, contact integrity@seattleu.edu for accommodations and/or alternatives.

Other sanctions (classes, meetings, online modules, papers, etc.) will be expected for on-time completion. If they are not completed, our process – which may include fines and administrative holds for incomplete sanctions – will continue as usual.

I have a question about an administrative hold on my student account. What should I do?

If your hold is related to completion of Think About It, please email thinkaboutit@seattleu.edu.

Otherwise, please check your email history with our office (from a staff member and/or notifications@maxient.com). In addition, you can email integrity@seattleu.edu for questions abut holds.

What about records requests?

Our office can process most records requests virtually. Please see our webpage on Student Conduct Records for information.

Government agencies interested in having conduct/disciplinary checks completed for security clearance should email integrity@seattleu.edu

If you are another outside agency requesting records for employment and/or admission to an institution, contact integrity@seattleu.edu

I'm in a different time zone. How should I communicate with you?

Email us at integrity@seattleu.edu to schedule. We can be available to talk at a time that's convenient for everyone involved. This includes rescheduling any appointments/meetings with our office.

I called the main telephone number (206-296-6060) and no one answered. What should I do?

The best way to contact our office is over email, either integrity@seattleu.edu or emailing your Conduct Administrator directly. We are monitoring voicemail messages regularly. If leaving a voicemail message, please include 1) your full name (and Seattle U ID Number if applicable), 2) your relationship with the university, 3) a callback number, and 4) the reason for your call.

About Integrity Formation

Our Jesuit tradition of intellectual, moral, spiritual, and social development is the foundation of the mission of Integrity Formation. We aim to provide all students with the tools needed for success in a pluralistic society by providing feedback about behaviors that both enhance and harm the academic community, as well as assistance and opportunities in modifying unacceptable behaviors. As a Jesuit and Catholic institution, we hold our students to the highest standard of ethical behavior both on- and off-campus.

Integrity Formation provides students with an opportunity to learn from decisions that do not align with the Redhawk Commitment and Code of Student Conduct. and to reflect on how different choices impact their understanding of integrity.

Vision 

We will provide a transformational experience that encourages students’ individual accountability, growth and reflection, care for the community, and ethical development.

Mission 

The mission of Integrity Formation is to cultivate a safe, academically-focused community that fosters student success and engagement. We ask students to take ownership of their choices and provide educational opportunities and resources that foster personal growth, repair harm, rebuild trust, and strengthen each student’s relationship with the university.

Philosophy and Purpose  

Our Jesuit tradition of intellectual, moral, spiritual, and social development is the foundation of our Redhawk Commitment and Code of Student Conduct.  We aim to provide all students with the tools needed for success in a pluralistic society by providing feedback about behaviors that both enhance and harm the community, as well as helpful resources and opportunities to modify unacceptable behaviors.  As a Jesuit and Catholic institution, we hold our students to the highest standard of ethical behavior both on and off campus.  Our purpose is to: 

  • Provide a prompt, fair, and equitable process for the accountability of student conduct
  • Educate students about their rights and responsibilities 
  • Encourage the safety, health, and wellness of the campus community
  • Promote the development of individual integrity
  • Uphold the non-academic rules and regulations of the University
  • Guide students toward achieving their academic, personal, and professional goals. 

In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.
