Student Conduct Administration



The purpose of the Non-Academic Student Code of Conduct at Laurier is to promote an environment consistent with the overall educational goals, mission, and vision of our University.  Laurier strives to be a diverse, intimate, inclusive and supportive community.  It is devoted to learning, research, scholarship, creativity, professional expertise and personal development in a student-centered environment.  As such, students are regarded as responsible adults with rights and responsibilities as learners and citizens within our community.  The purpose of the Non-Academic Student Code of Conduct is to support the above-mentioned goals while maintaining the general welfare of the University community as a whole.

Laurier views the student conduct process as a learning experience which fosters intellectual growth, clarification of values, behavioural changes and an enhanced understanding of personal and social responsibility within the University and greater community.  The code of conduct and related processes are an educational endeavor to foster students' learning and development.  By creating and implementing this code of conduct, Laurier affirms the principles of students' rights and responsibilities coupled with acceptance and accountability for individual actions and their consequences.  In line with Laurier's guiding principles of responsible governance, community citizenship, integrity and strong leadership, collaboration and collegiality, and respectful relationships, this Code seeks to balance student success with the well-being of the community by encouraging participatory processes and providing educational opportunities.

The goal of Student Conduct Administration at Laurier is to provide students, through their experiences in the student conduct process, an opportunity to grow, learn, and develop in the following domains:

  • Intellectual growth
  • Clarified personal values
  • Social responsibility
  • Healthy behaviour
