Student Conduct and Community Standards

Student Code of Conduct Mission

Franklin Pierce University, College at Rindge, is committed to creating and maintaining a safe and productive learning environment within our community. The FPU Student Conduct process exists to promote justice and fairness, by providing students who are accused of violating the Student Code of Conduct, and may face judicial sanctions, with an opportunity to be heard. It is expected that each person will grow to have a greater respect for self, others, and property.

Student Code of Conduct Philosophy

Franklin Pierce University, College at Rindge, is committed to creating and maintaining a safe and productive learning community with its students. It is expected that each person will grow to have a greater respect for self, others, and property.

The philosophy of the Student Conduct is one of education. Franklin Pierce University has developed a judicial system, which will assist students in their transition from adolescents to adults. This will facilitate the students’ cognitive and social development. Our goal is to help students grow and learn from their mistakes, rather than imposing arbitrary punishment. This is not to say there are no consequences for violations of community behavior.

As a part of its educational mission, the University has developed a Student Code of Conduct. The University believes that its proper role is to offer opportunities for the personal growth of its students. Hence, the development of responsible conduct and good conduct is promoted by the Franklin Pierce Community. Students are expected to become familiar with, and adhere to, the University’s standards and policies for student conduct. Furthermore, students are responsible for their actions, and those who violate the Code of Conduct will be subject to disciplinary action.

Creating an environment that is completely free from harassment, violence and harm may be an ideal, but should unequivocally be a goal and priority that the University thoughtfully pursues.
