- Culture of Respect Committee
SIUC is a proud partner of Culture of Respect: Ending Campus Sexual Violence, a NASPA initiative to ensure institutions create policies and programs that support survivors, prevent sexual violence, and communicate that violence is unacceptable.
Culture of Respect
The SIUC Culture of Respect Committee consists of various campus and community stakeholders to improve coordination between community leaders and service providers to prevent sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking and to ensure a coordinated response. The committee addresses the following as related to gender-based violence:
- Best practices for prevention, awareness, education, and response.
- Comprehensive policy and procedures in accordance with federal and State law.
- Collaboration and information sharing among university professionals, community-based organizations, and local law enforcement.
The committee meets monthly throughout the academic year and as needed during the summer months. Committee membership is frequently reviewed and additional members are added as needed. In addition to the students appointed to the Culture of Respect Committee, the chair will appoint a student advisory panel to provide recommendations to the committee. Students interested in serving on the student advisory panel can email Abby Bilderback, Ph.D., Abbyg@siu.edu or Dean of Students, Jennifer Jones-Hall, Jennifer.Jones-Hall@siu.edu for additional information.

- Graduate Policies
Graduate policies often vary from Undergraduate policies. To view the applicable policies for graduate students, please refer to the graduate catalog on the grad school website
- Incomplete Policy - Undergraduate ONLY
An INC grade may be assigned when, for reasons beyond their control, students engaged in passing work are unable to complete all class assignments for the course. An INC must be changed to a completed grade within one full semester (undergraduates), and one full year (graduate students), from the close of the term in which the course was taken or graduation, whichever occurs first. Should the student fail to complete the remaining course requirements within the time period designat-ed, the incomplete will be converted to a grade of F and such grade will be computed in the student's grade point average. For more information visit:Registrar Incomplete Grades Policy
- Repeat Policy
An undergraduate student may, for the purpose of raising a grade, enroll in a course for credit more than once. For students receiving a letter grade of A, B, C, D, or F, the course repetition must occur at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Effective for courses taken Summer 2013 or later, only the most recent (last) grade will be calculated in the overall GPA and count toward hours earned.
This policy will be applied to all transferable credit in that only the last grade will be used to calculate grade point average. Only those courses taken at the same institu-tion are considered repeats under this policy. See full policy at the Registrar's website
- Safety Awareness Facts and Education
Title IX makes it clear that violence and harassment based on sex and gender is a Civil Rights offense subject to the same kinds of accountability and the same kinds of support applied to offenses against other protected categories such as race, national origin, etc. If you or someone you know has been har-assed or assaulted, you can find the appropriate resources here:http://safe.siu.edu
