The University has the responsibility to establish policies and procedures that safeguard the health and safety of its community members. Policies and procedures were designed to protect students against incidents or behavior that may jeopardize the physical, mental and emotional health and/or safety of either the group or the individual. At first glance, some of these policies may seem unduly restrictive. However, given the potential for damage, injury and/or loss of life, certain rights of the individual may be limited for the common good of the community.
Care and protection of both community and personal property is a shared responsibility of all its members. Policies were developed to create an environment where students respect and protect their own property as well as the property of their neighbors and the University.
All community members are expected to uphold and enforce these standards with assistance from Residence Life staff members.
