Mission, Values and Learning Outcomes

Our mission, values, and learning outcomes were developed in conjunction with the Division of Student Affairs in pursuit of providing an optimal working and learning environment for UC San Diego students and the community.


The Center for Student Accountability, Growth, and Education (SAGE) leads and manages the UC San Diego non-academic student conduct, student compliance, and restorative justice programs. We do this by partnering with the campus community to maintain the integrity of our community by holding students accountable to themselves and their communities, facilitate student growth and development, administer fair, equitable, and educational processes, and promote student health, safety, and welfare. 


As Student Affairs professionals, we strive to embody the UC San Diego Principles of Community and the Student Affairs Strategic Plan in the values we promote to students, faculty, staff, and others we interact with. 

  • Accountability - We value taking responsibility for one's decisions and the impact of those decisions on our community. 
  • Growth - We value helping students grow and learn from their decisions to develop into more responsible and community minded individuals. 
  • Education - We strive to educate our students about community standards and expectations while providing them the knowledge and skills to enhance their decision making. 
  • Restorative Practice - We aspire to cultivate and institutionalize Restorative Practice on campus, establish Restorative Justice as a core principle of campus culture, and transform our institution into the equitable and inclusive community we all deserve. 
  • Fairness - We strive to facilitate equitable and transparent processes free from bias and prejudice. 
  • Equity – We strive to address all forms of inequity (e.g., anti-Blackness, racism, privilege, and any form of bias) through personal and professional development, facilitating Fairness, and developing and implementing equity-minded policies and procedures. 
  • Collaboration - We value our distinctive undergraduate college system and collaborate with our campus colleagues to serve our students most effectively. 

Learning Outcomes

We engage in outcomes assessment to improve student learning, programming, and the administration of applicable programs, processes, and policies. Specifically, we focus on the following student learning outcomes: 

  • As a result of participating in our programs, students will have greater knowledge, awareness, and understanding of our standards and expectations of conduct, consequences for violations, and the impact of their actions on themselves and others. 
  • As a result of participating in our programs, students will be able to identify and access relevant campus resources. 
  • As a result of participating in restorative programs (e.g., restorative justice circles and the Practical Decision-Making Workshop), students will be able to articulate the impact of their decision-making on themselves and others. 
  • As a result of completing educational outcomes(s), students will be better able to identify and articulate risk reduction strategies, how they make decisions, and the impact of their behavior on themselves and others. 
  • As a result of participating in relevant training programs, student participants (e.g., conduct board members, student advocates, and resident/house advisors) will be able to articulate a greater understanding of our processes and their roles within them. 

Land Acknowledgment

The Center for Student Accountability, Growth, and Education (SAGE) at UC San Diego recognizes that our community was built upon the ancestral homeland of the Kumeyaay people. For millennia, the Kumeyaay have nurtured a relationship of balance and harmony with the land where we gather today. We acknowledge the legacy of the Kumeyaay Nation and extend our utmost respect and gratitude for their stewardship of this land.
