The Office of Student Conduct at the University of Kentucky (UK) works to promote personal responsibility and peer accountability amongst students and registered student organizations. With the goal to encourage students to consider the impact of their actions on themselves, their peers, and the greater community through development of conflict management skills, the Office of Student Conduct is looking to fill the Assistant Director role to better serve our Registered Student Organization community and guide student conduct practice through comprehensive assessment.
In addition to serving as a conduct officer, the Assistant Director for the Office of Student Conduct will be tasked with overseeing the Registered Student Organization conduct process, including investigations, adjudication, and engaging in strategic partnerships around prevention and education. The Assistant Director will work closely with Fraternity and Sorority Life, Student Organizations and Activities, and Club Sports offices in order to ensure Registered Student Organizations are compliant with policy and informed of the student conduct process.

Finally, the Assistant Director will serve in the absence of the Director when appropriate, requiring the ability to understand and communicate the complexity of student conduct practice and the Code of Student Conduct.
