Derived from its general philosophy of student life—Sewanee students are regarded as people who are morally and legally responsible for their own conduct within the norms and values of our community. The resolution process teaches students in the College of Arts and Sciences appropriate and acceptable behavior within a community. The College provides a resolution process in which members of the Sewanee community may resolve violations of the Code of Conduct with mutual respect for one another while fostering relationships. These relationships help to create an environment where members of the community are held responsible for their actions with the ultimate goal of encouraging and fostering the personal growth and development of each student.
The Office of Community Standards strives to complement the educational mission of the University, one that focuses on upholding the commitments inherent in the Sewanee community.
The Office of Community Standards is charged with supporting the University’s values by overseeing the conduct process and relevant policies for students enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences. Community Standards works in partnership with offices including Residential Life, Equity, Equal Opportunity, & Title IX, and the Honor Council to provide education and enforce the relevant policies.
