Office of Judicial Services
Welcome to the Office of Judicial
Services here at Shaw University. While
student discipline is important, the main focus of this office is assisting in
the overall development of the student by encouraging them to make good decisions, respect others, and assume
responsibility for their own personal actions. While adhering to the prescribed student code
of conduct this office reinforces the need for our students to be moral,
ethical, law-abiding citizens.
The Office of Judicial Services
governs not only by University policy but by local, state, and national laws as
dictated by individual violations. The
information kept by this office is confidential and falls under the guidelines
of Family Educational Rights to Privacy Act (FERPA) although for data and
statistical purposes may be reported per the CLERY Act, a federal law which
requires the reporting of crimes on college campuses. It also complies with the Title IX of the
Education Amendments of 1972 which speaks to discrimination on the basis of sex
in education programs and activities.
Judicial Services works in
conjunction with the entire campus community in adjudicating student violations
receiving referrals from campus appearance tickets (CAT) issued by Campus
Police and Security, reports from students and referrals from academics or
other campus units. Off campus reports are generally initiated through the
Campus Police/Security Office and are adjudicated according to policy.
information, students and staff are encouraged to visit the office located on
the second floor of the Willie E. Gary Student Center during the normal
university operating hours.
forward to serving you!
