community standards
Community Standards

Suffolk University has sought to educate students who—as leaders in law, business, and professional and civic life—will live by the highest intellectual and ethical standards. In search of this ideal, Suffolk strives to create an environment in which learning is a shared responsibility that is pursued in classrooms, studios, and laboratories; internships and study abroad programs; co-curricular and extracurricular activities; athletic fields; residence halls; and the city of Boston and beyond.

The Suffolk University Community Standards and other policies are intended to contribute to the education and growth of student members of the campus community. The University will hold students accountable for their actions as a necessary part of community life.
