Statement of Purpose
The Office of Judicial Services is responsible for acting on
behalf of the College/University in matters of student
discipline. Judicial Services deal with alleged instances of
behavioral misconduct and academic dishonesty, in order to
determine how best to resolve these allegations consistent with
the goals and mission of the College/University as an educational
and intellectual community.
Student Judicial Services is chiefly responsible for the
promotion of campus community standards. Judicial processes
protect the rights of students as well as the programs, property
and persons on the Newark campus. The judicial affairs
process educates students about rights and responsibilities and
provides students with information concerning conduct issues,
judicial policies and non-academic discipline procedures.
Detailed information related to the judicial processes for both
The Ohio State University at Newark and Central Ohio Technical
College can be found at their respective Code of Student Conduct
links located on this page.
The Office of Judicial Services has twin goals: to help create a
safe environment where academic life can flourish; and to promote
the development of students.

Collin’s Law (Hazing) Report 2022-23
As part of Central Ohio Technical College’s commitment to
promoting a safe and healthy campus environment, members of the
college community have the right to be free from all forms of
hazing, which impede the college’s realization of their mission
and values. The college does not tolerate hazing in any form and
all members of the college community must conduct themselves in a
manner that supports an environment free from hazing.
In compliance with Collin’s Law, this report will serve as the
report of all hazing violations under the Code of Student Conduct
from 2017 through the publication date. Collin’s Law requires
colleges to report hazing violations for the last five years no
later than January 15, 2023.
Personal identifying information for individual students,
including organization names, will be removed in accordance with
the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974.
More information about reporting hazing, anti-hazing training and
other prevention, reporting and supportive resources available to
students, staff and faculty can be found on the college’s student
conduct website: cotc.edu/student-conduct.
From 2017 through this publication date, there have been no
complaints or reports received by the college and no
investigations or adjudications through the Code of Student
Conduct have occurred.
