The Office of Community Standards
The Albright College Office of Community Standards values an educative approach to sanctioning students who are found in violation of the Student Code of Conduct. The Community Standards process is grounded on the concepts of respect, civility, integrity, justice, and accountability to promote learning outcomes. The primary goal is to ensure due process so that students can achieve their academic goals through educational outreach. A restorative justice model is often used to facilitate self-reflection and rebuild community relationships that have been harmed.
As a student enrolled at Albright College, I understand that I am expected to familiarize myself with and observe all college policies and regulations within the student handbook, The Compass, which can be found online at http://www.albright.edu/compass/index.html. From matriculation through commencement, I acknowledge that I am fully and personally responsible for my actions and the consequences of my actions, whether on or off campus. Ignorance of policies regarding expected behavior will not be accepted as a defense or excuse.
