Residential Living and Student Conduct

To Champion Responsibility and Learning

Know the CODE

Drexel University expects that all students as well as student organizations will conduct themselves responsibly and in a manner that reflects favorably upon themselves and the University. When a student or organization does not act responsibly and violates the University policies, rules, regulations, or standards of conduct, formal disciplinary action may result.

The Conduct process reflects the University's concern that students and organizations maintain high standards. The Conduct process attempts to foster personal learning and growth, while at the same time holding individuals and groups accountable for inappropriate behavior.

The goals of the conduct process are:

  1. To promote a campus environment that supports the overall educational mission of the University
  2. To protect the University community from disruption and harm
  3. To encourage appropriate standards of individual and group behavior
  4. To foster ethical values and civic virtues
  5. To foster personal learning and growth while at the same time holding individuals and groups accountable to the standards of expectations established by the Code of Conduct


  • Develop, disseminate, interpret, and enforce campus rules and regulations
  • Teach students about appropriate behaviors and the consequences for unacceptable and/or inappropriate behaviors through the use of critical thinking skills
  • Intervene effectively when behavior violates the Code of Conduct
  • Offer educational and leadership opportunities for students who participate in the operation of the Student Conduct process
  • Cultivate a community supportive of community standards

NOTE: Just as students with disabilities may be eligible for accommodations in their classes, accommodations may be available for Student Conduct procedures as well. Students with disabilities requesting accommodations and/or services from the Office of Residential Living and Student Conduct need to present a current accommodation verification letter (AVL) prior to their conduct meeting. AVL's are issued by the Office of Equality and Diversity’s Disability Resources team.
