Residential Living and Student Conduct

Mission

Residential Living and Student Conduct (RLSC) uses a student-centered approach to create an inclusive environment that fosters personal growth, effective problem solving, and collaborative conflict resolution. RLSC promotes safety through proactive education and access to resourcesWe engage students to be active and reflective individuals who understand the impact of their actions on the community.

Conduct Creed

Residential Living and 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.

Additional Information

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.

Because 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.

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 website.
