Campus Safety & Community Standards

Stonehill is located in Easton, MA, a friendly residential community 22 miles south of Boston. Because of our location and the investment we’ve made in the security of our campus, we typically experience few incidents of crime, fire or other threats to safety on an annual basis.

In search of the ideal environment for integrated learning, we’ve developed a code of shared responsibilities. We have high expectations for how our members live and interact with one another and at the heart of these expectations is a respect for self and others. These expectations are expressed as our Community Standards.

Campus Safety

Safety and security are paramount to successful academic and professional pursuits, and the well-being of everyone who lives, works or visits Stonehill is our utmost priority. Campus safety is a community effort and, in addition to providing safety services, the Stonehill College Police Department hosts a number of personal safety events on campus every year.

We comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act by compiling statistics on the crime rate in and around our campus, and by routinely conducting evaluations of campus-wide emergency preparedness.

Community Standards

We believe that everyone deserves to live and work in a comfortable environment, and we hold high expectations for the manner in which our community members live and interact with one another.

Our Community Standards cover the basics – prohibitions against acts of dishonesty, guidelines for personal conduct, and protocols for personal identification and representation – and serve as a reminder of the rights and responsibilities of being a student at Stonehill College.

We do take a strong stand against illegal/abusive alcohol use, and we don’t tolerate illegal drug use or sexual misconduct on our campus. These behaviors have a direct impact on academic pursuits, and in the end, that’s what we’re all here for. We hold students accountable for their actions as a necessary part of community life, and we’ve developed a formal Student Discipline System to handle violations of our Community Standards.
