IHE Discipline
Higher Education

Discipline at institutions of higher education (IHEs) refers to the policies, procedures, and strategies applied on campus to manage college student behavior and practices used to encourage self-discipline.

Campus disciplinary procedures address campus-wide, classroom, and individual college student needs through broad prevention, targeted intervention, and development of self-discipline. Approaches to campus discipline range from restorative (e.g., campus-wide school climate improvements, use of restorative practices) to punitive (e.g., probation, community service, restricted housing, expulsion). How campus disciplinary procedures are handled has a great impact on the IHE’s learning environment.
