Student Behavior Policies-Philosophy

August 28, 2013

Hope’s policies are designed to enhance the campus environment and are provided in a spirit of consideration for others. The College will strive to support students as persons and affirm their self–worth and dignity in matters of policy enforcement. Our goal is to help all students grow and mature socially as well as academically and spiritually.

Although some of these standards are more strict than found in society as a whole, campus residences accommodate many more people in close quarters than other living environments in society. Thus, some regulations have been established to assist in providing an atmosphere which is conducive to learning but which also offers restrictions designed to enhance the quality of campus life.
