Welcome to Community Standards
Stonehill College’s 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. Therefore, we expect that students become familiar with the expectations outlined in the Campus Life section of The Hill Book, as they are the standards to which they will be held during their time here at the College.
