The mission of the Office of Community Standards and Commuter Services is to articulate to students the standards of behavior expected within the University community. Standards of student conduct ensure respect for all members of the community and maintenance of a collaborative and learning-centered environment as described in the University's mission statement. Rowan University has instituted a Student Code of Conduct to set forth the standards and expectations that are consistent with its purpose as an educational institution. The Student Code of Conduct has been developed to guarantee procedural fairness to students when there has been an alleged failure to abide by Rowan University's policies and regulations. While it is the goal of the student disciplinary process to educate students as to the purpose and importance of abiding by the Student Code of Conduct, the University will also issue sanctions as are appropriate and necessary to ensure continued and/or future adherence to this Code, and to protect the university community from disruptive behavior.
The commuter and off-campus student services function of the office is responsible for addressing the concerns and unique needs of these students. Through education, resources, and support services the office provides opportunities for the off-campus and commuter student populations at rowan to develop a sense of connectedness and community. In addition the office serves as a liaison between the University and our neighbors, encouraging dialogue about issues of mutual concern.
