Student Judicial Programs

SJP articulates and enforces the expectations of the Rice University community. These expectations are written in our Code of Student Conduct, Alcohol Policy, Sexual Misconduct Policy, and in other Rice documents. The expectations for behavior at Rice arise from our shared values as a community; the written rules in these documents memorialize those shared community values.


For more information about SJP, please feel free to make an appointment to talk about any questions you have. The professional staff in SJP welcome the opportunity to meet with students to talk about the work we do. You can also read our Frequently Asked Questions.

Rice students are encouraged to participate in public discussion and activism surrounding issues that may be controversial. Our professional role is to support individual students who have been impacted by sexual violence or domestic violence. We will always serve students who would like our support. Any student can come to us with concerns, and will be welcomed with respect and dignity.
