University Directives

At the University of Portland, authority to give directives resides in the officers of the University and its faculty, administrators, and staff. A directive issued by the Office of Student Affairs or any other University office charged with student welfare, including, but not limited to, the Office of Residence Life or Public Safety, has the force of a University regulation. Failure to comply with such a directive may cause a student to be subject to the University student conduct process. Examples of such directives include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Requests for valid identification,
  • Requests for compliance with University policies,
  • Mandatory meetings, including residence hall meetings and student conduct meetings, and
  • Student conduct sanctions.

Students who fail to complete student conduct sanctions may be charged with additional violations of University policy(ies) through the University's student conduct program.
