Student Handbook: Statement on Student Behavior

Category: Policies on Tolerance, Respect, and Civility School: Washington & Lee University Statement Rating: Yellow Last updated: December 15, 2017

Relevant excerpt

The community expects civil, decent behavior designed to encourage mutual respect for our individual differences, desires, and ways of thinking.

Instances of uncivil behavior involving students are most effectively dealt with in personal and informal ways, not by formal conduct procedures. Therefore, members of the Washington and Lee community who believe themselves to have been objects of such behavior should first seek resolution by personal consultation with friends, faculty, designated advisers, or others who may intervene in the dispute. If such direct efforts do not resolve the matter, instances of uncivil behavior involving students may be reported to the Associate Dean of Students for Student Conduct.
