XII. Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct

The Richard Bland College community shares a commitment to achieving our educational mission, vision, and strategic goals. The William & Mary Board of Visitors and the RBC 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 that supports the pursuit of academic learning and activities, respect for others, and the opportunity for personal growth and development. The College expects students and student organizations to abide by the Code of Conduct both on and off campus. The Code 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 Code of Conduct will be applied to behavior occurring off campus on a case-by-case basis. This Code of Conduct exists to provide an environment conducive to the mission, vision, and values of the institution. Through this Code, the College seeks to guide the development of personal responsibility, respect for others, and mature behavior. The students’ observance of College regulations and policies is important, as is the observance of public laws. The Code of Virginia contains public laws governing the conduct of all citizens and also contains specific provisions relating to colleges and universities. Violations of the Code of Virginia may result in the application of the College’s Code of Conduct procedures, which may result in a student’s expulsion from RBC.

For complaints relating to student or employee discrimination, harassment, sexual misconduct, or retaliation pursuant to Title IX, please refer to the RBC website at http://www.rbc.edu/why-rbc/faculty-staff/policy-manual/ for applicable policies and procedures.
