For this study, 1,884 adjudicated college students provided their impressions of the educational value and procedural fairness of their disciplinary experiences. Results indicated that a strong correlation exists between perceived fairness and educational value. Differences in students' perceptions emerged in regards to age, gender, and GPA, among other characteristics. The value students assigned to the disciplinary hearing they attended with a student affairs professional best predicted the degree to which they believed their involvement in the process would cause them to avoid future violations of university policy and change their behavior.
