The Non-Academic Student Code of Conduct at Laurier exists 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.
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.
