Franklin Pierce University is committed to creating and maintaining a safe and productive learning community with its students.
The philosophy of Student Conduct is one of education. Franklin Pierce University
has developed a conduct system, which will assist students as lifelong learners. This
will facilitate the students’ cognitive and social development. The goal of Student
Conduct is to help students grow and learn from their mistakes, rather than imposing
As a part of its educational mission, the University has developed a Student Code of Conduct. The University believes that its proper role is to offer opportunities for the personal growth of its students. Students are expected to become familiar with, and adhere to, the University’s standards and policies for student conduct. Furthermore, students are responsible for their actions, and those who violate the Code of Conduct will be subject to disciplinary action.
If any member of the community (student, faculty, staff, or outside community member) is concerned about another individual on campus, for any reason (academic, social, overall wellbeing, behavior, etc.) they can submit an Incident Reporting Form anonymously to alert the Behavioral Intervention Team of the concern.
To report, anonymously or not, information regarding incidents of Sexual Misconduct,
