Community Standards

Community Standards promotes being a positive member of our community by educating students about policies and procedures, holding students accountable for their actions, and providing students intentional interventions and sanctions.

Campus Crime and Fire Report

The campus crime and fire information is intended to be a convenient source of information to help members of the SD Mines community keep themselves and each other safe. It is also distributed as part of the university's obligations under the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy, which requires universities to collect and disseminate campus crime statistics and other related information.

Visit the Campus Crime and Fire Report website.

Academic Integrity

High standards of academic honesty and intellectual integrity are essential to the success of our students and the institution. The campus community will not tolerate acts of dishonesty in any academic activities at School of Mines. Such acts jeopardize not only the individual student, but also the integrity and dignity of the institution and its members. To report possible academic integrity issues, please complete the Advocate Online Report here.
