Student Conduct and Restorative Practice

We support the enhancement of a positive campus community by addressing behavioral expectations for student safety and personal conduct. We work with others in Student Services, student groups and the broader University community to educate the character of students through the collaborative development of campus community standards and the implementation of a fair and efficient Conduct Process. We are committed to providing an opportunity for peer involvement in development and application of the conduct process. 

StFX is a community dedicated to outstanding teaching, exceptional hands-on research experiences, the very best in a residential community, and unique opportunities to make a contribution to communities at home and abroad. Membership in this community implies acceptance of the principle of mutual respect for the rights, responsibilities, dignity, and well-being of yourself and others.

The Community Code, located on the University's policy page,  outlines standards for all students, and the types of outcomes to expect when these standards are breached. Every student is expected to act in a responsible manner so as not to compromise his/her own safety or endanger the health and safety of others.

Ultimately, our philosophy is that we want everyone to feel safe in their community, and to respect one another. Living in a new community, can be difficult, so we aim to give you the tools to make the transition easier.

Advocates: If you ever find yourself in a little trouble with the Community Code or the Academic Code, you can always approach an advocate for support and advice. Advocates are students who are trained to understand the Community Code. They can attend all hearings with you and provide you with important information regarding the "conduct process'. Student Advocates are a confidential resource that is available to you throughout the academic year. Student Advocates
