The Office of Community Standards educates the campus community on expectations for student conduct and administers formative and developmentally-based opportunities rooted in the Holy Cross tradition to challenge students to reflect on their choices, take responsibility for their actions, and understand the balance between the needs of the individual as well as the University community.

Our themes guide our work in student development and formation:

Learning outcomes have been established to reflect a commitment to holistic development. Students that participate in the University Conduct Process will be able to:

  • gain insight about their values.
  • understand how their decisions impact themselves and others in the community.
  • articulate the University's expectations for conduct.
  • create a plan to make better decisions.
  • make decisions which align with their values and the University's expectations.

Questions about the Office of Community Standards can be directed to our staff.
