Workshops are educational in nature and assigned as part of the student conduct process at Gonzaga University. These outcomes are utilized to help students live a life congruent with the mission and values of the university.


Students who have repeatedly violated University policy or could benefit from extensive and individualized attention regarding decision making appropriate for the Gonzaga community may be assigned Integritas. Students assigned to this outcome will be able to identify and articulate person, and Jesuit values, demonstrate critical reflection on their decision making practices and develop goals and an action plan to achieve those goals. Students in Integritas meet weekly for five weeks and then present a final project after their 5th class on their “way of proceeding”.


“Live Your Values Everyday” (LYVE) is a one-time hour long educational workshop. This workshop guides students in the process of reflecting on their beliefs and values and translating those commitments into living a more authentic life. LYVE creates a genuine and safe space for students to grow through moderate discussion while discovering how the values of the institution align with the values of the student.

Magis Conversations

The Jesuit concept of "magis" centers around a devotion to the pursuit of a better choice, a better path, and a better way of living in service to God and the common good of others.  After being assigned a Magis conversation through a conduct process a trained facilitator will work one on one with the student to help them reflect on their choices and explore options for a better and more critically discerned way forward in the Gonzaga community.

False Identification Workshop

The False Identification Workshop educates students on the laws and policies of Washington State and Gonzaga surrounding the manufacturing, purchasing or use of false identification.  This workshop provides tools for students to better understand their values through reflect and the development of an action plan to better identify what is important to them. 


As a member of Gonzaga community students are obligated to abide by the Student Code of Conduct. Students sometimes express confusion in their conduct processes about what is expected of them while they are students at Gonzaga. RECAP is an online interactive experience that’s purpose is to educate students about Gonzaga’s Student Code of Conduct. Upon completion of RECAP students should have a better understanding of the Code of Conduct and how to ensure their behavior does not violate the Code of Conduct again.

Reflective Essays and Other Educational Projects

During a conduct process, students often display the need to further reflect over certain aspects of their situation or to gain more information about the environment in which they are making decisions and impacting others. The Office of Community Standards regularly assigns students prompts over which to write a reflective essay. These are most regularly tailored to the student's specific context. Student's may also be assigned other educational projects that involve research into existing statutes, communities, or other areas of the social environment in which they are making decisions.
