The Emerson College community is vibrant, creative, and caring. Emerson College students are challenged to think critically and show good judgment within the educational community environment where principles of freedom of expression, education, diversity, and fairness are valued and affirmed. Emerson College’s Code of Community Standards is in place to ensure that the Emerson community is aware and respectful of these values and to promote a safe and comfortable community to learn, live, and work.

The Code of Community Standards is facilitated by the Office of Community Standards. The Code of Community Standards serves to protect the rights of Emerson College community members as well as the rights of students reported to have violated the College’s Community Standards. Students are expected to uphold the College’s Community Standards and responsibly address behavior that may question or violate these standards.
