Idaho State University is committed to responding to student misconduct in a fair, consistent and educational manner while reaffirming principles of community.
We seek to resolve conflict through active communication designed to better understand motives, intentions, attitudes, beliefs and emotions. Through negotiation, mediation and peace-building we embrace restorative justice principles with a focus on rehabilitation, reconciliation with victims and the community at large. When appropriate victims take an active role and offenders are encouraged to accept responsibility.
