griffon gold community standards

Griffons build community by showing…

Respect for Self
Respect for Others
Respect for Property
Respect for Authority
Honesty

To encourage a strong community, Housing and Residence Life has adopted the Griffon Gold Community Standards.  This program uses a point system. Any violation of our Community Standards is assigned a point value, ranging from 1 to 6 points. Students who accumulate 6 points in an academic year (fall, spring, and summer semesters) will meet with a review board consisting of peers, faculty and staff. This board will decide if a student is placed on probation or will have their housing contract terminated and be removed from University housing.

Community Standards Violations

The Griffon Gold Community Standards are based on the Student Code of Conduct and Housing and Residence Life Handbook. The following descriptions do not include every violation possible, nor do they contain every variance of the violations listed. You will be notified of a policy violation through your student email account. Please refer to the Residence Life Conduct Process found here for more information
