Student Conduct Process
Integrity and respect for the community, both in and out of the classroom, are recognized by Babson College as core values.
Flowing from these core values, the College has defined a set of expectations for all of its members. These expectations, which govern both academic and non-academic integrity, are outlined in the Undergraduate Honor Code as well as the Undergraduate Student Handbook (pdf) and the Graduate Handbook (pdf). In addition students are expected to adhere to all federal, state, and local laws.
Deviation from these expectations maybe responded to through the various student conduct processes. A complete description of the processes can be found in the 2014-2015 Guide to the Student Conduct Process.pdf.
The Office of Community Standards has developed the following learning outcomes for students that go through our process:
Students will have an understanding of College policies - particularly the policy violations he/she is charged with.
Students will be able to articulate how their actions impacted their personal wellbeing and academic goals as well as how their behavior connects to personal values and beliefs.
Students will be able to articulate how their actions impacted the community.
Students will understand how their actions relate to the five pillars of the Honor Code:
Fairness is actively ensuring that everyone has access to the same opportunities and community resources.
Ownership is taking pride in and responsibility for one's actions and authorship, and having the courage to compel others to do the same.
Respect is showing sincere consideration and appreciation for individuals and differences among them.
Trust is the ability to believe in the integrity and reliability of others.
Honesty is truthfulness in all that we do and say, including clear attribution for others' thoughts and ideas.
Students will be able to better identify their needs, understand the resources available to them, and problem solve as an entrepreneurial leader.
