Office of Community Standards

The Office of Community Standards serves to provide students with a living and learning environment that reflects the values of the Stonehill community and supports the College's commitment to developing the moral, spiritual, intellectual and social competencies of our students. To achieve this goal, Stonehill looks to the students to be partners in this process with the hope of creating an environment that is respectful of the rights of all individuals within the community.
