Conduct and Community Standards
Student Conduct uses a student-centered approach to create an inclusive environment that fosters personal growth, effective problem-solving, and collaborative conflict resolution. Student Conduct promotes safety through proactive education and access to resources. We encourage students to be active and reflective individuals who understand the impact of their actions on the community.
Student Conduct has established, in accordance with its mission, vision, and values, a code of high standards of behavior to include the following expectations for students and student organizations to:
- Accept responsibility when their choices or actions have negatively impacted themselves, others, or the community at large.
- Engage in constant learning, practice self-reflection, and develop resilience to maintain academic, personal, and professional integrity.
- Foster positive relationships with others.
- Ensure the health, wellness, and safety of themselves and their communities.
Drexel University’s primary concern is the health and safety of its students.
Responsible Dragon Amnesty Policy (RDAP) – The University is aware that students are sometimes reluctant to seek medical attention in alcohol- and drug-related emergencies out of fear that they may face sanctions related to possessing or consuming alcohol or other drugs.
Given that these emergencies are potentially life-threatening, Drexel University seeks to create a culture of trust and care paired with safety and responsibility while reducing any barriers that would prevent students from seeking assistance.
In compliance with The Timothy J. Piazza Anti-Hazing Law, C.S. § 2810, et seq. (Safe Harbor), RDAP provides amnesty from disciplinary action for students or student organizations who seek medical assistance during an alcohol- or drug-related emergency. For more information about this policy, including requirements, review the Responsible Dragon Amnesty Policy.
Academic Integrity – For information on the Academic Integrity Policy, visit the Office of the Provost's Academic Integrity Policy. For information on how to report a violation of the Academic Integrity Policy, please visit the Report an Incident webpage.

Accommodation Statement: 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 Student Conduct need to present a current accommodation verification letter (AVL) prior to their conduct meeting. AVLs are issued by the Office of Equality and Diversity's Disability Resources team. For additional information, visit the Disability Resources website.
