The Richard Bland College community shares a commitment to achieving our educational mission,
vision, and strategic goals. The Board of Visitors and the President bear ultimate responsibility and
authority; however, faculty, staff, and students share a responsibility to help maintain on campus, in the
classrooms, and in the residence halls, an environment in support of the pursuit of academic learning and
activities, respect for others, and the opportunity for personal growth and development.
The College has an expectation for students and student organizations to maintain a high standard of
conduct both on and off campus. The Standards of Conduct for students applies to conduct that occurs on
College property, at College sponsored events and activities, and to off-campus conduct when the
conduct adversely affects the College community and the pursuit of its objectives. The Standards of Conduct
will be applied to conduct occurring off-campus on a case by case basis. These Standards of Conduct exist to
provide an environment conducive to reflecting the mission, vision, and values of the institution. Through
these standards, the College seeks to guide toward the development of personal responsibility, respect for
others, and mature behavior.
