Statement of Responsibilities and Standards of Conduct

As a Jesuit institution, the University of San Francisco is committed to being a community that facilitates the holistic development of its members. 

In keeping with this commitment, the student conduct code, process and related policies and procedures have been created to guarantee each student’s freedom to learn and to protect the fundamental rights of the campus community.  The University has created these policies and procedures to achieve its objectives as a Catholic, Jesuit University.  The policies and procedures are inclusive of the laws of the nation, the state of California, and the local community. 

This commitment encourages the freedom for individual choice and expression with the expectation that individual members of the community will be honest, demonstrate respect for self, others, the law,  and University policies and procedures.

All members of the USF community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that is consistent with the goals of the institution and demonstrate respect for self, others, and their property. Students living off campus are members of this community and, as such, are representatives of USF to the community at large. In this regard, students living off campus maintain an equal measure of accountability to the values and expectations of all members of this community as identified in the Student Conduct Code.

The student conduct code and process at the University of San Francisco exists to support the academic mission of the University and to provide guidelines and expectations for appropriate student behavior. Its purpose is to educate students about the importance of responsibility, accountability and adherence to the core values of the institution. At all times, students are expected to act with integrity, display respect for self and others and be women and men for and with others working to change the world from here.
