As an educational institution, Susquehanna University seeks to encourage the intellectual and personal growth of its students as scholars and citizens. Therefore, Susquehanna is committed to student engagement in achievement, leadership and service both in and out of the classroom. Choosing to join the Susquehanna University community requires each member to recognize and adhere to a Code of Student Conduct emphasizing personal responsibility, awareness of how one’s actions affect the community, and one’s personal growth both inside and outside of the classroom. As positive community relations and personal responsibility continue to be valued off campus, the university campus should not be viewed as a sanctuary where its citizens avoid responsibility to observe civil law.
This Code of Student Conduct seeks to promote these qualities, both as a means to individual fulfillment and to guide Susquehanna students in “productive, creative, and reflective lives of achievement, leadership, and service in a diverse and interconnected world.” Thus, students are expected to exhibit high standards of behavior and concern for others. The university has established a Code of Student Conduct, as well as other rules and regulations, which individuals, groups of students, and student groups or organizations are expected to observe.
