Roger Williams University is a community dedicated to learning and assumes that students come to the University for serious purposes. Students live and work together in an atmosphere of mutual and self-respect. They join with faculty and administration in creating a living/learning environment that is conducive to both personal and academic growth.
Students and the student staff are empowered by the University with considerable responsibility. In return, the University assumes students to have a high degree of maturity and expects civil conduct which affirms human values. Conduct intervention is intended to increase the student's awareness of the effect of their actions on others in the community.
The philosophy of our conduct system is education. Our goal is to assist students to grow and learn from their mistakes. Self-control is a vital component in an orderly society which is consistent with our educational mission.
Enforcement of the Code is the process by which the University community rules upon the propriety of student behavior. This Code applies to both the undergraduate and graduate students of Roger Williams University.
