We, the students of High Point University, shall seek excellence in the classroom, on the playing field, and in positions of leadership and service across our campus.
As a community of scholars, we shall work together with faculty to create an environment conducive to teaching and learning.
As a community of persons, we shall treat each other with compassion, with dignity, and with civility, avoiding bigotry, racism, and sexism and learning from each through the diversity we bring to High Point.
As persons, we shall be honest and just in all that we do, recognizing that we can never be greater than the integrity of our word and deed.
As citizens of global community, we shall act responsibly, both on campus and off, governing our actions not only by our personal needs and desires but also by a concern for the welfare of others, for the general good of humankind, and for the environment upon which we mutually depend.
Recognizing that communities cannot exist without values and codes of conduct, we shall search for enduring values; and we shall adhere to those codes of conduct which have been established by and for the members of High Point University.
When we leave High Point, we shall leave it better than we found it, and in support of this goal, we pledge our loyalty and our service to this University which we have chosen as our own.
High Point University shall not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, national origin, ethnic origin, or physical condition in the administration of policies and programs involving admissions, educational services, financial aid, or other activities generally provided to undergraduate or graduate students at the University.
The commission of any offense that is motivated by the race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, cultural background, disability or any other defining characteristic of an individual or group of individuals is prohibited.
Grievance Procedures. Students who believe that they have been denied access to the programs and services of High Point University should contact the Vice President for Academic Affairs (academic grievances), the Dean of Students (non-academic grievances), or the Athletic Director (athletic grievances). Either administrator may (1) attempt to adjudicate the case directly; (2) refer the case to the Conduct Board, or (3) allow the student to choose between the two options. All conduct cases must be processed and adjudicated within 60 days of reported offense unless undue circumstances arise. Decisions resulting from any of the three hearing may be appealed to the president of the University who may, at his discretion, refer the case to the Executive Committee of the University for closure.
