Student Conduct strives to promote a living and learning environment that is safe, positive, and in which the rights of all members of the campus community are respected. Student Conduct fosters student learning and development through an accountability process focused on educational opportunities involving reflection on behavioral impact and resolving community concerns.
Student Conduct utilizes restorative practices to foster community building, deter future problems, and as an intervention strategy after a conflict has occurred. Rather than a punitive approach, this process treats misconduct as a violation of people and relationships in the community. The restorative process encompasses reflective questioning and inclusive decision-making in order to repair harm, rebuild trust, and restore the community.
The College uses conduct administrators and two designated boards to handle various campus policy infractions: the Conduct Board and the Honor Council. Any infraction may also be handled administratively by the Vice President for Student Life, the Assistant Dean of Students, Provost, Vice President for Academic Affairs, or designee.
Every Bridgewater College student is responsible for knowing all campus policies outlined in The Eagle Student Handbook (.pdf). For a complete statement of, and more information on, campus policies and procedures, please refer to The Eagle Student Handbook.
