The title of the presentation was â€œStudentâ€Ÿs Perceptions of Conduct Sanctions: A Review of Deterrence Theory.â€ We are applying aspects of deterrence theory to investigate which sanctions are more likely to deter misconduct as oppose to current sanctions. Currently, the study is in itsâ€Ÿ third phase. Nigel Richardson is a Graduate Advisor with OASIS and Matthew Parnell is a Hall Director with Housing and Residence Life. James G Archibald, Ph.D. serves as both Nigel’s and Matthew’s advisor as well as the Program Coordinator for the Higher Education Leadership program.
