Values-based Policies

In order to create a University environment in which civility, decency, and respect are honored, Trinity University has set the following standards of behavior.

Respect for Self, Others, the Community, and Property

Students are expected to respect themselves by avoiding conduct that is potentially dangerous and detrimental to their physical, psychological, or emotional well-being.

Students are expected to respect others, including those in the greater community. Examples of unacceptable behavior include, but are not limited to, the following: violence, threats of violence, harassment, stalking, dangerous conduct (such as tampering with safety and security related property), and threatening, belligerent, or menacing behavior toward others.

Students are expected to respect the standards that form the foundation of a civil community through personal integrity. Examples of unacceptable behavior include, but are not limited to, theft, possession of stolen or illegal property, lying, cheating, falsification of records, disruption, disorderly conduct, failure to identify one’s self, evasion of University officials, failure to respond to a reasonable request of a University official, harassment or belittling of staff performing their duties, indecency, possession/ownership or use of a weapon, and unauthorized entry into buildings.

Students are expected to respect the property of others, including University and student property. Examples of unacceptable behavior include, but are not limited to, vandalism, defacement, and destruction of property.

University-initiated Withdrawal

Personal Responsibility

Students are expected to be responsible for their own behavior and assume responsibility for the behavior of guests, if those guests are otherwise unconnected to the University or are unidentified. Student hosts assume responsibility for sponsoring activities or gatherings in violation of policy.
