Student Code of Conduct
Franklin Pierce recognizes that enrolled students assume an obligation to conduct themselves in a manner compatible with an educational institution. Students are expected to live their lives as both responsible individuals and contributing members of an academic community.
The responsibilities of students as citizens of both the campus community and society-at-large are stated in the Student Code of Conduct. Students are expected to be fully familiar with the Student Code of Conduct and will be held accountable for their actions as members of the University community.
The main campus Student Conduct System, clearly detailed in the Student Code of Conduct, was established to provide the administrative means for maintenance of order and protection of persons and property. Administrative authority for the campus conduct system resides with the Vice President for Student Affairs.
Responsibility for the various levels of the judicial system is delegated by the Vice President for Student Affairs to specified members of the community in such a way as to ensure a fair and equitable conduct process. The Code of Conduct is available here.
