Community Responsibilities: General Principles
While we realize that it is impossible to create an academic community whose behavioral norms will be acceptable to every person, we believe that it is important to formulate certain behavioral expectations so that the objectives of Malone can be met.
It is therefore assumed that an individual who has voluntarily chosen to join the Malone community will strive to exhibit the following modes of behavior characteristic of a mature person.
Malone students will:
- Seek to develop as whole persons by growing academically, physically, socially and spiritually.
- Pursue excellence in their work and study, will use resources and will take advantage of enriching opportunities with diligence and perseverance.
- Continually assess their growth and will strive for positive change within the community.
- Be free to consider the broad range of human opinion and ideas without engaging in the whole range of human behavior.
- Assume responsibility for their behavior and its effect on other persons.
- Be concerned about the welfare of other persons within the community and the welfare of the community as a whole.
- Realize they are part of a community with a strong Christian tradition and they must respect that tradition while exercising freedom to review and evaluate it.
