Faculty & Staff

The Dean of Students Office works to support students through the many opportunities and challenges that present themselves during the course of their academic careers. Our goal is to partner with faculty and staff in achieving this. Currently, all university members are finding themselves navigating complex situations in what feels like a new era in higher education. By working together, we can connect students to appropriate resources in a timely fashion and enhance our individual and collective toolkits. Together, we can help ISU students achieve all to which they aspire during their time at Idaho State.

Additional information about academic processes that may impact you or your students may be found in the Student Handbook. These include withdrawing from classes or university, appealing course grades, the Scholastic Appeal Process, etc.

Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is a core value of our university experience. The high quality academic performance of students at Idaho State University is essential to our reputation, to the value of our programs, and to the demonstrated work and knowledge base that our degrees represent. As such, incidents of academic dishonesty are considered a serious offense and handled with urgency. Detailed information about academic dishonesty can be found in the following resources.

Student Code of Conduct

The Student Code of Conduct provides expectations for student behavior to help build the best possible learning and living environment for all members of the community.

Faculty & Staff Support Resources

Increasingly, we see and hear from faculty and staff that they are being confronted with situations which they feel unprepared to handle. Uncomfortable conversations about behavior, academic expectations, personal situations that impact how students show up in the classroom or workplace, and everything in between have become the norm in our day-to-day interactions. The Dean of Students Office supports and affirms instructors’ authority and responsibility to create and maintain a learning environment that is conducive to all within Idaho State University’s policies. We offer a Student Assistance Guide and a Faculty Support Website to help faculty and staff navigate these murky waters, but we are also prepared to serve as thought-partners any time faculty and staff want to reach out. We’ve also included links to syllabus and classroom management resources from other institutions.

Report a Concern

Staff and faculty may run into some situations in which basic classroom management techniques and kind, proactive communication with students are not enough. If you believe a student to be in distress or in outright crisis, please visit our Report A Concern page for more information about how to handle these situations, determine whether the campus CARE Team should be involved, submit a Report of Concern, and more.
