Community Standards and College Policies

Stonehill College, an academic community within the Catholic tradition, committed to its Holy Cross roots, holds high expectations for how its members live and interact with one another.  At the heart of these expectations is a respect for self and others.  Specifically, Stonehill is committed to developing the moral, spiritual, intellectual, and social competencies of our community.  In search of this ideal, Stonehill endeavors to create an environment in which integrated learning is a shared responsibility, pursued in the classroom and laboratory, co- curricular and extra-curricular activities, athletic fields, residence halls, dining room, and chapels. These expectations and competencies are our Community Standards.


Sexual and Gender-Based Misconduct and Interpersonal Violence 

Stonehill College is committed to maintaining a respectful, professional, and nondiscriminatory academic, living, and working environment that emphasizes the dignity and worth of all students, faculty, staff, and visitors.  This includes having an environment free from sexual and gender-based harassment, sexual assault, interpersonal violence, dating violence, stalking, sexual exploitation, complicity, and retaliation.
