Student Code of Conduct


The Clarion University community is committed to fostering a campus environment that is conducive to academic inquiry, a productive campus life and thoughtful study and discourse. All students at Clarion University, whether they are taking classes on campus, online, or at a satellite site in Pittsburgh or Venango, are expected to uphold and abide by certain standards of conduct that form the basis of the Student Code of Conduct. 

These standards are embodied within a set of core values that include integrity, social justice, respect, community and responsibility. Each member of the University community bears responsibility for their conduct and to assume responsibility for the behavior of others. When members of the community fail to exemplify these five values by engaging in a violation of university policy, campus conduct proceedings are used to assert and uphold the Student Code of Conduct.

The Student Code of Conduct applies to behavior that occurs on campus, at University-sponsored events, off-campus, or online. All students are encouraged to review the Student Code of Conduct so they understand the standards to which they are to adhere to, as well as understand their rights as a student at Clarion University.
