Office of Community Expectations

The Office of
Community Expectations

The Office of Community Expectations (OCE) works to provide preventative education regarding student behavior policies to students and Recognized Student Organizations. This office works together with other key members of the university to implement the university’s Unifying Values outlined in our student handbook, as it relates to students and community expectations.

The mission of the Office of Community Expectations (OCE) is to promote student accountability, community standards, and responsibility.  We strive to achieve this through proactive education, preventative interventions, an individualized developmental approach, and a connection to the greater USC community and its resources.
