Action Plans

Educational pillar

Can include warnings, disciplinary probation, suspension, or expulsion.

Knowledge pillar

Can include educational seminars, bulletin board creation, academic integrity or copyright seminars, and other learning experiences. This pillar focuses on the knowledge from community members on campus about specific behaviors that caused a moment of incongruence.

Restorative pillar

Can include restitution, letter of apology, mediation, community service, and topical presentations. This pillar focuses on restorative justice-related activities that are designed to “give back” to the person and/or community affected by the behavior.

Reflective pillar

Can include reflection papers, closure meetings, and potential meetings with an impacted party. This pillar focuses on self reflection on one’s actions and the impact of those actions on others.

Wellness pillar

Can include alcohol/drug education or assessment, anger management, and off-campus counseling. This pillar focuses on promoting the well-being of a student, especially those who might want emotional support on or off campus.

Actions, not sanctions

Unlike sanctions, which imply punishment, authority, or a loss of reward, action plans promote partnership and student learning. All action plans are intended to educate and to help you realign with institutional values.
