Discipline Board

The Discipline Board is a committee that participates in handling issues that concern students.

Under Section 4.12 of the Student Handbook (SY 2003-06)

Any report of a student exhibiting unbecoming behavior automatically brings about an inquiry by the Director of Discipline. Such action may render a student liable to be discharged from the university, upon investigation by the University Discipline Board.

Under Section 13.2.6.1 of the Student Handbook (SY 2003-06)

Ordinarily, cases under this section are handled by the Discipline Board of the school where the respondent belongs. However, the case shall be initiated by the DO where the offense was committed. The DO concerned files and refers the required reports to the Discipline Board concerned. This is without prejudice to the right of the complainant to file the case in any forum other than the Board.

Both DLSU-Manila and DLSU-CSB should expand cooperative efforts in the service of the required documents or pleadings, in the safeguarding of evidence, and in other measures related to the case.

The procedures governing the hearing of the case are those of the school where the Chair of the joint expanded Board comes from.
