All Students, Registered Student Organizations (RSOs), and Affinity Groups (AGs) are bound by the Honor Code, Standards of Conduct, and all College policies. Any Student, RSO, or AG found in violation of the aforementioned policies may be held accountable and be subject to the Community Standards process outlined in these Standards.
Additionally, faculty and staff are required to follow the procedures outlined in these Standards when they become aware of behavior that may violate the Standards.
Purpose of the Standards of Conduct and Honor Code
The purpose of the Standards of Conduct and Honor Code is to engage students on issues of community membership, encourage responsible decision-making, safeguard the health and welfare of all members of the Rhodes community, protect college property, and promote integrity and accountability.
Implementation of Rights
The Standards of Conduct and Honor Code are the College’s document governing Student, RSO, and AG conduct and the Community Standards process. All discipline imposed upon a Student, RSO, or AG must be in accordance with the provisions of the Standards of Conduct and Honor Code.
The procedures for addressing and resolving allegations of sex and gender-based harassment and discrimination, including sexual misconduct (e.g. sexual assault, stalking, dating violence, domestic violence, sexual exploitation, retaliation, etc.) are addressed by the Office of Title IX.
OCS may delegate its authority over potential violations by residents of Rhodes College housing to the Department of Residence Life for resolution using the standards set forth in the Standards of Conduct.
