Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities - COVID-19/Virtual Learning FAQ

As the university responds to COVID-19, the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities remains open and will continue our work and services. Our commitment to serving our students and the Purdue University community will continue. We will update this FAQ as University procedures and expectations change over time.

If after reviewing this page, you still have questions or concerns, we ask that you contact our office at 765-494-1250 or osrr@purdue.edu, and one of our staff members will do their best to assist you. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.

Is the office open?

Yes. As of July 6, 2020, the OSRR Office will be open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., with the exception of Noon-1 p.m. While we are open, most staff will continue to work remotely and encourage students to attempt to resolve their issue via e-mail or phone, and only come to the office necessary. If you are looking to reach a specific staff member, we suggest emailing or calling prior to coming to the office. If you have general questions, you may call our office line at 765-494-1250 or e-mail osrr@purdue.edu and staff member will assist you. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.

My conduct case is still open and unresolved. What will happen?

We are proceeding with our work. Students responding to OSRR related matters will still be expected to participate in meetings, but all meetings at this time will be conducted over the phone or through WebEx (to learn more about WebEx, please visit: https://purdue.webex.com/mw3300/mywebex/default.do?siteurl=purdue). We ask that students regularly check their university e-mail account and respond to any communication accordingly.

I had a conduct conference or other meeting scheduled. What happens now?

If you were notified of a scheduled meeting or scheduled a meeting prior to March 13, 2020, due to the change in the University’s operations related to the COVID-19 outbreak, students responding to OSRR related matters will still be expected to participate in meetings, but all meetings at this time will be conducted over the phone or through WebEx (to learn more about WebEx, please visit: https://purdue.webex.com/mw3300/mywebex/default.do?siteurl=purdue). Please understand that your meeting may need to be postponed, and our office will be in communication with you about expectations for your meeting moving forward. We ask that students regularly check their university e-mail account and respond to any communication accordingly.

I have sanctions due soon. What should I do?

If the sanctions you have been assigned can be completed independently and remotely (I.e. reflection papers, apology letters, recommitment statements, and integrity seminar), our office will expect that you still complete those sanctions in the time frame you have been assigned to do so and submit them appropriately to osrr@purdue.edu. If you do not believe that you will be able to complete the sanction in the given time frame, please contact your conduct officer and they will work with you as needed.

If the sanctions you have been assigned are ones that were to be completed with a campus or community partner (I.e. CAPS AOD, office referrals, community service, follow-up meetings), we ask that you contact your conduct officer and they will work with you to develop a plan to complete your sanctions. Some of our campus partners are continuing their work remotely and will be able to offer you alternative opportunities to complete these sanctions.

If you are currently a student that has been assigned to a community service site, please contact the Community Service Program Coordinator, Stephanie Cuevas, at sncuevas@purdue.edu

Please know that our office can take up to 5 business days to complete and send disciplinary records checks to the appropriate party(ies).

I called the main telephone number, but no one answered.

During normal business hours (8:00am-5:00pm, Monday-Friday), a staff member will be available to take phone calls. If you call and reach voicemail, it is because all available staff are currently unavailable due to assisting others. We ask that you leave a detailed voicemail about how our office can assist you along with your name, PUID # and a phone number and/or email that we can reach you at. A staff member will return your call as soon as possible.
