|Descriptions of Potential Sanctions
17 (PDF) a wide variety
of sanctions are allowed for students who violate university
policies. Sanctions are intended to address
the inappropriate behavior in a constructive, developmental and
Criteria for assigning sanctions are determined by several factors:
the severity of the misconduct, the nature of the incident,
and the student's
prior conduct record.
We have listed some of the more common sanctions used at UW Green Bay, but if circumstances require it, alternative
or additional sanctions may be put into place. The Dean of Students office has no authority over citations given
to students by Public Safety officers.
Warning: A written warning is considered the lowest level sanction given to students. It is a formal message to a
student that violations of this policy will result in higher level sanctions should another violation occur.
Disciplinary Probation: A student may be put on probation
for 1 to 24 months. Probation is a period of time specified
by the university for the student to be mindful of their behaviors.
If probation is violated
within the set time period,
higher level sanctions will be considered — see UWS
Disciplinary probation is separate and unrelated to academic
Community Service: For incidents where the student has engaged in behavior that has an impact on all or a portion of the
university community, students are required to give back to the community. Students required to complete community
service hours are given a form (Community Service Agreement) to be completed, with a list of common departments or
non-profit organizations, on and off campus, that students may work with to complete their service requirements.
If a student chooses to work with an organization that is not on this list, the student is strongly encouraged to contact
the Judicial Affairs Advisor prior to beginning work.

AlcoholEdu for Sanctions: This is an online alcohol education
class normally used as a first offense sanction. Alcohol Edu is a course that
is broken into 5 chapters, taking about 3 hours to complete the total class.
Once the student
has completed the
course, they are required to pass the final exam with a score
of 85% or above. After the student completes the course, they
may be required to meet with a member of the counseling staff to discuss the
from both classes and plans
for the future. There is a $100 charge for taking the class.
The charge will appear on a student’s
account as "AlcoholEdu."
Insight: Normally used as a sanction for a second offense, Insight is a six hour alcohol education program. Schedules are available
from the Dean of Students office. The class focuses on providing information to students so they can make better choices
when it comes to their alcohol use. The $100 charge for the class is not intended to be a fine, but is necessary to cover
the costs associated with offering the class. The charge will appear on a student’s account as “Insight”.
Housing Termination: Students who reside on campus may have their housing terminated by the Dean of Students office for
reasons of student misconduct. If housing is terminated, the student will lose their security deposit of $225. Termination
is often enacted for alcohol or drug violations as well as violations jeopardizing the personal safety of one’s self or other
residents in the community.
