Article I – Introduction and Purpose

Keystone College has been charged with the responsibility of providing students with an educational experience that prepares them to participate in a rapidly changing world, and to do so with a commitment to the highest moral and ethical standards. To achieve this end, Keystone College has outlined a set of desired values and attitudes considered the foundation of intellectual and moral integrity in our future leaders. Keystone College has prepared this statement to outline behaviors expected of students in the campus environment. It is anticipated that this conduct will be carried forth in their lives beyond the college experience.

Students are responsible for the consequences of their actions. The College’s Student Code of Conduct addresses three major areas of moral integrity including: 1) academic honesty, 2) respect for rules and policies, and finally, 3) respect for themselves and their community. The first two are more readily established because they relate to written rules, policies, and laws, which are stated in the Student Code of Conduct and in local, state, and federal codes. Civility, the respect for people, is the foundation upon which these first two principles rest.


Students with disabilities as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act requiring special accommodations should notify the Coordinator of Student Conduct in writing at least three (3) calendar days prior to their meeting or hearing.


Keystone College does not discriminate on the basis of sex, gender, race, color, age, creed, national or ethnic origin, physical or mental disability, veteran status, pregnancy status, religion, or sexual orientation, or any other protected status. This policy is consistent with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. For the full policy, please visit www.keystone.edu/title-ix. Violation of this policy should be reported to the Chief Student Affairs Officer.
