Community Standards and Civility

We are WSSU Office of Community Standards and Civility CreedThe Office of Community Standards & Civility seeks and strives to promote ethical conduct through personal responsibility, encouraging civility and integrity, and a sense of community amongst WSSU students. The Office of Community Standards & Civility strives to promote campus safety and harmony by maintaining an environment consistent with WSSU educational purposes and operations.

Office of Community Standards & Civility's mission is to educate students on the policies of the University pertaining to conduct and their student rights. By educating students on the integrity and ethical standards of their community, it creates an environment for students to consider, in advance, the consequences of behavioral infractions, to accept responsibility for one's own actions in and out of the university, create social justice advocates, and creates an environment for students to understand that they are more than just a student at WSSU, but a representation our community.
