Important Update: Student Community Agreement
Students play a critical role in helping the community mitigate the infection and spread of the Coronavirus. In order to have a successful semester, we will all need to do our part, which includes educating ourselves and abiding by the posted health and safety measures. As such, students have agreed to follow all federal, state, county, local, and university guidelines listed at Student Community Agreements, as well as those issued throughout the academic year and communicated to students via email.WCU is here to help you during this time. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, and we will be happy to assist you.
**The Office of Student Conduct in 200 Ruby Jones Hall is staffed regularly during University business days. In consideration of health guidelines, virtual appointments are preferred to in person meetings. Please contact the Office of Student Conduct at 610-436-3511 or email@example.com to schedule an appointment. Same day virtual appointments may be available.**
The Office of Student Conduct wants you to be a successful and responsible member of our community throughout your time at WCU. Our mission is to maintain an educational environment through upholding community standards and foster personal development by assisting individuals in evaluating decisions to promote learning and social responsibility.
As a member of the WCU community, the University expects you to abide by the Student Code of Conduct both on and off campus. When you make choices and behave in a manner that does not reflect the standards defined in the Student Code of Conduct, University disciplinary action may take place.
In accordance with the University mission and values statement, the Office of Student Conduct contributes to maintaining a socially responsible community. The Office of Student Conduct serves students, faculty, staff and parents as well as the University's community constituents to address student conduct issues by:
- Assisting in the dissemination, interpretation and enforcement of campus policies;
- Ensuring that the student's right of due process is applied fairly and consistently;
- Collaborating with the University and community constituents to address student behavioral issues;
- Providing leadership opportunities for students participating on the University Hearing Board;
- Offering learning experiences for students through the University conduct process.
Please note: The Office of Student Conduct sends all official correspondence through email utilizing the student’s West Chester University issued email address. This is our primary and official form of communication. Students are expected to check their University email daily. Any and all consequences that result when University email is not read or checked regularly are the responsibility of the individual student.
