Office of Community Standards

The Office of Community Standards is committed to developing, interpreting, and ensuring the fair adjudication of the College’s Student Code of Conduct in order to provide a safe community for students to learn and grow.

The Office of Community Standards institutes the conduct proceedings for violations of Eckerd College policies. The student conduct process is not intended to punish students; rather, it exists to protect the interests of the community and to challenge students’ moral and ethical decision-making, thus assisting them in bringing their behavior into accordance with our community expectations.
