Disorderly Conduct Offenses

A Disorderly Conduct charge is a "catch-all" charge that college and university students may find themselves having to face.  These violations can result from on and off-campus incidents.  Disorderly Conduct is generally defined as:

  • Conduct that is disruptive and/or serves no legitimate purpose.
  • Breach of peace or aiding, abetting, or procuring another person to breach the peace on college or university premises or at functions sponsored by, or participated in by, the college or university or members of the academic community.
  • Disruption or obstruction of teaching, research, administration, disciplinary proceedings, pedestrian or vehicular traffic, other college or university activities or of other authorized non-university activities when the conduct occurs on college or university premises.
  • Unauthorized use of electronic or other devices to make an audio or video record of any person while on college or university premises without his/ her prior knowledge, or without his/her expressed consent when such a recording is likely to cause injury, distress, or breach a reasonable expectation for privacy. This includes, but is not limited to, surreptitiously taking pictures or videos of another person in a gym, locker room or restroom.
