Description

Perception of the Residence Hall Conduct Process at a Small Private Institution, Is A Well-Researched Topic, It Is To Be Used As A Guide Or Framework For Your Research.

ABSTRACT

The code of conduct process at small institutions can be difficult to manage. The purpose of the study, using a qualitative approach, was to research residents’ and Conduct Officers’ perception of the resident housing code of conduct process at a small private institution. Research participants included three residents who participated in the conduct process and three Conduct Officers who were involved in the hearings. Results revealed that residents who were sanctioned found the process to be inconsistent and too long. As a result, the impact of the sanctions varied. Conduct Officers involved in the hearings perceived the conduct process to be educational and a method of deterrence.

Some barriers to the process included the dual roles of the Conduct Officers and inconsistent management of the process. Participants suggested identifying one person to be the conduct officer and designating a space for the hearings would help. The study
provided an opportunity for college institutions to reevaluate their conduct process in light of the findings.
