Code of Conduct

The College of St. Scholastica's mission is to provide intellectual and moral preparation for responsible living and meaningful work. The success and reputation of the College in fulfilling its mission depends on the ethical behavior, honesty, integrity and good judgment of each member of the College community with due recognition of their positions of trust and loyalty to the College and its students.

This Code of Conduct outlines principles, policies and some of the laws that govern the activities of the College and to which our employees (faculty, staff and students) and others who represent the College must adhere. All employees (faculty, staff, and students) and other individuals representing the College are expected to inform themselves about and comply with College policies and regulations pertaining to them. Sources include, for employees, the Staff Handbook and relevant union agreements, and, for faculty, the Faculty Handbook. When in doubt about the propriety of a proposed course of action, one should seek counsel from colleagues, supervisors, or administrators who can assist in determining the right and appropriate course.
