Resident Campus Philosophy
The administration of regulations regarding student conduct is one of the responsibilities of the Vice President for Student Development. Resident students are immediately responsible to the resident directors of the various residence halls. These persons are responsible to the President of the University through the Vice President for Student Development and the Student Development staff for personal guidance to all students. Nonresident students are urged to seek the advice and counsel of the counselors-at-large, the Vice President for Student Development, the Associate Dean of Community Life, the Chaplain to the University, the Associate Dean of Student Development, and the Director of the Center for Student Success.
Policies and practices of conduct are formulated with the development of spiritual and scholastic attainments in mind. The University reserves the right to request withdrawal on the part of any student who manifests an inability or disinclination to adjust to the policies or campus life expectations.
Students are expected to observe the policies of conduct and have agreed to do so by making initial application for admission as a student. Policies of the University are in effect as long as a student is enrolled, both on campus and off, and during vacation periods. Failure to keep this commitment may result in a variety of disciplinary actions, including suspension or withdrawal from the University.
Generally, our regulations fall within three broad categories:
For example, we have regulations governing residence hall life and general campus behavior.
The University reserves the right to change or add to any of the regulations designed to enhance student development. These regulations are listed in detail in the University Life Handbook. It is the responsibility of each student to know and abide by the policies of the University.
