Being a member of a community means understanding and adhering to community standards and policies. It also means taking an active role in the development and well-being of that community. One community role is to ensure that community standards are upheld. As a community member, you are responsible for your behavior, the choices that you make, and the behavior of your guests. It is our hope that you will choose to abide by all University and housing policies as well as community standards. If you are ever in the presence of a policy violation, you have some choices:

  • you may attempt to stop the violation,
  • you may contact residence hall staff, or
  • you may remove yourself from the situation.

If you choose to remain at the scene of a policy violation, you may be included on the incident report and may be held accountable for a policy violation.
