Community Responsibilities: Statement on Student Sexual Conduct
Malone recognizes that all of us are impacted by the cultural standards and philosophy of our society. Many times the policies of Malone run counter to personal or community cultural standards or philosophies and especially in the area of sexual relationships.
Therefore, Malone has adopted a Statement on Student Sexual Conduct, including the following guidelines and principles:
A. Sex should be exclusively reserved for the marriage relationship.
B. Sexual relationships on campus can be disruptive to Malone community and can cause difficulties in one's relationships with fellow students, especially with roommates or suitemates.
C. Inappropriate sexual relationships leave emotional scars on each individual that often hinders future healthy relationships.
D. There are certain health risks associated with sex outside a committed marriage relationship. Engaging in sexual contact or behavior with another person (defined as sexual intercourse, touching sexually intimate parts of another person, inappropriate disrobing, or any other physical contact or touching of a sexual nature) with or without the consent of that person, or by compulsion through physical or emotional force or fear, is prohibited.
Malone especially prohibits these behaviors on Malone property, while engaged in Malone business or activity, or while operating or riding in in any Malone-supplied vehicle. Students found in violation of this policy will face disciplinary sanctions, up to and including dismissal from Malone for a specified amount of time.
