Community Standards and Student Conduct

The Office of Community Standards and Student Conduct fosters a safe, just, and equitable learning and working community grounded in Arcadia’s Lived Values. We support student success through a culture of care, we educate students on their rights and responsibilities, and hold students accountable for their decision making. Through intentional, proactive services, crisis intervention, and the conduct process, we promote understanding of the standards of conduct and community expectations. 

A Community Built Upon Common Values

Arcadia University's Lived Values and the Knight Code of Honor are the foundation of our community standards -- what you can expect from us and what we expect from you. Learn more about how these pieces fit together to form our Community Standards and Student Conduct System below.

The Knight Code of Honor

Arcadia University’s Lived Values play a critical role in our pursuit for personal and academic excellence. They provide a framework for a community that welcomes and includes all, grounded in the liberal arts. The Knight Code of Honor illustrates how each Arcadia Knight demonstrates these Lived Values.

 

Arcadia Knights are adaptable, fearless, respectful, and responsible.

Arcadia Knights embrace excellence, integrity, justice and intellectual freedom.

The Knight Code of Honor reflects our Lived Values and describes how we demonstrate our values every day.  We celebrate behavior that positively influences and strengthens the community.
