Webster University Student Life policies have been written to help guide the behavior of students as members of the University community. Webster strives to be a center of academic excellence. We make every effort to ensure:
The University community is by nature pluralistic and diverse. Those who elect to participate in the Webster University community accept the responsibility of sharing in the effort to achieve the University’s mission as an institution of higher learning. Each person is expected to respect the objectives of the University and the views expressed within the community. All members of the University community, and their guests, are expected to conduct themselves in an appropriate and civil manner at all times.
Participants in this shared enterprise strive to be governed by what ought to be rather than what is. To accomplish its goals, members of the University community aspire to a standard that is higher than mere compliance with formalized University requirements and national law. We endeavor to fulfill the following expectations:
To preserve academic honor and integrity by repudiating all forms of academic and intellectual dishonesty:
Inquiry, discourse, and dissent, within the framework of an orderly academic environment, are essential elements of a university community. Members of the Webster University community recognize this and are consequently supportive of democratic and lawful procedures, and dedicated to rational approaches to solving problems. This assumes openness to change as well as commitment to historical values.Click here to read complete Student Code of Conduct and Procedures »
