Student Conduct

Our Mission

William and Mary’s Student Conduct and Honor programs serve to maintain the College community's values and behavioral expectations of its students. The mission of Student Conduct is to promote a living and learning environment that is respectful of the rights and perspectives of others, that is safe and free from disruption, and that allows students and faculty members to pursue their educational goals.

The office fulfills its mission by providing educational programs, confronting behavior that violates our community expectations and engaging students in reflective learning in order to foster personal development, civility, and an understanding of the responsibilities attendant with living in our community.

Fostering Personal Growth and Responsibility

The Student Conduct and Honor systems at the College of William and Mary exist to provide a living and learning environment that reflects the values of the community, including those of personal integrity, academic integrity, concern for the rights of others, and personal responsibility. These values are reflected in the Honor Code, the Code of Conduct, and other College policies.

Staff members are available to provide information to students, faculty, and staff about the College community's standards, to provide information about relevant procedures, and to discuss complaints related to students or student groups.

Please refer to Student Conduct and Honor processes for a complete explanation of the Conduct and Honor processes. In addition, flow charts depicting the Conduct(PDF) and Honor(PDF) processes are available for download and review.

The Codes provides not only your duties as members of the community, but also your rights--rights to live independently and safely, and rights to be judged academically on a level playing field on the basis of your own merits.

Please refer to the Student Handbook for a complete explanation of the Conduct and Honor processes. Also check out the flow charts that depict how the Conduct (PDF) and Honor (PDF) processes work.

If you are here because you suspect any student misconduct, you may submit a violation report to the Dean of Students Office.
