Purpose & Mission
Being a member of the Boston College community is a privilege, which comes with the responsibility to act in accordance with all institutional rules and policies. The Student Code of Conduct exists to provide information on these behavioral expectations and to articulate the process of addressing violations of these expectations.
As a Jesuit Catholic institution, Boston College is committed to the holistic development of our students, and part of this commitment is instilling integrity, encouraging right decision-making, and fostering self-accountability. Each student is expected to grow and develop during their time here, to be more than when they began their journey at BC. The goal of the Office of Student Conduct is to facilitate this growth by educating and fostering the civility, communality, and social decorum required of an educational institution.
