Student Rights & Responsibilities

Student Rights & Responsibilities is an area of the Department of Student Support and Transitions in the Division of Student Affairs. SRR is responsible for educating students about their rights and responsibilities as members of the Florida State University community, implementing the Student Conduct Code, and holding students accountable through education conversations and programs, if needed.

  • Mission Statement: The Florida State University Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities (SRR) mission is to facilitate student learning and development regarding community standards by balancing individual and community rights. SRR supports a safe and inclusive environment that enhances academic pursuits and student success. Institutional core values of the Seminole Creed and Responsible Freedom guide our conduct and inform policy and decisions.
  • Philosophy of Discipline: A humanistic approach to discipline is used whenever possible. The University Student Conduct system and appeals processes are designed to provide and help maintain an atmosphere within the University community that is conducive to academic pursuits. Serious disciplinary action against a student, such as separation, is considered and invoked only when other options fail to meet the needs of the University’s mission.
