Philosophy of the Conduct System
The primary purpose of the Longwood University Conduct System is to promote responsible citizenship, appropriate behavior, and self-discipline through enforcement of the Code of Conduct Standards and Regulations.
All students, groups, and organizations are expected to abide by these standards, and demonstrate respect for the rights of others to live, study, teach, learn and work in a campus community dedicated to academic achievement, service, and a strong quality of life.
Because the Conduct System is committed to fostering the intellectual, personal, and social development of students, those found in violation of the Code of Conduct will, through appropriate sanctioning, be held accountable for their actions and given the opportunity to redirect their behavior in a manner consistent with the educational mission and values of the University.
"What you do speaks so loud, that I can not hear what you say."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson, American author.
