Student Code of Conduct Oversight

The Code of Conduct supports Georgetown University’s Catholic and Jesuit educational mission by enforcing regulations designed to promote an environment in which students can develop intellectually, morally, spiritually, and socially while exercising a balance of partnership and autonomy within the campus community. The mission of the Office of Student Development as it relates to conduct is to promote concepts of fairness and due process in judicial settings while striking a balance between community standards and individual behavior through the educational development of its students.
