However, we are committed to continuing to ensure a supportive, fair and equitable process through this challenging time. Please see below for updates regarding our services and answers to frequently asked questions. 

Is the Office of Community Standards open?

Please contact our email at communitystandards@miamioh.edu or leave us a voicemail at (513) 529-1417.

I have contacted the office. When can I expect a response?

The Community Standards email and voicemail are usually monitored during normal business hours (listed above). However, if you do not receive a response immediately our staff members may be assisting other students. You can typically expect a response from a staff member within 24 hours.

I received a notice from Community Standards. What do I do now?

Our processes have not changed as a result of moving to a virtual workflow. Our staff members are currently holding meetings with students via Google Meet video conferencing software, as well as over the phone. Please review the information you were sent, as it will contain important details regarding the context of your meeting, how to prepare, etc.

I have a hearing scheduled. How do I attend?

All hearings are currently being scheduled over Google Meet video conferencing software.

If you were not able to access the meeting or did not receive instructions, please contact the hearing officer or staff member listed in the notice you received.

I have sanctions or paperwork that needs to be turned in. How can I do this?
