The following apply to all persons on campus and at all times, including students and other persons who attend residencies. Full policies and procedures, including those related to community life, are published in the Graduate and Undergraduate Student Handbooks and program- specific addenda.
Sexual harassment includes but is not limited to unwelcome or abusive verbal and physical behavior related to gender or sexual orientation. Sexual assault includes but is not limited to rape, attempted rape, and date rape. Students should bring such problems forward to any member of the college’s senior staff. Charges of this nature are actively pursued by Goddard College. Please refer to the harassment policies set out in the college’s Student Handbooks.
When a student’s conduct disrupts the academic, administrative, or student life activities of the college or college community in a manner that is verbally or physically threatening or intimidating or evidences a basic disrespect for the property and rights of others or causes intentional significant damage to or theft of college property, that student’s conduct shall warrant prompt disciplinary action described in the Student Handbooks. In the event of such conduct, nothing stated in the Student Handbooks shall preclude the President, upon consultation with the Office of Academic Vice President or other appropriate members of the college’s senior staff, from taking appropriate summary action, including but not limited to suspension or dismissal of the student. Campus crime statistics are reported at www.ope.ed.gov/security.
Nonstudents are not permitted to stay overnight on campus during the residencies, except in cases of aides to persons with disabilities. In these cases, a housing-and- meals fee will be charged to the student for the aide. Generally speaking, pets are not allowed on campus, excepting special circumstances. A student who brings a pet or pets to a residency may be asked to leave the campus. Campus visitors who bring pets must leash them. Animals whose ownership cannot be determined will be removed. Service animals who are part of an approved accommodation for a documented disability are allowed on the campus.
Guns or weapons of any kind are not allowed on campus.
Federal law requires that Goddard will make every effort to provide its students and employees with a drug-free workplace. All members of the Goddard College community are expected to live within federal and state laws in regard to alcohol and drugs while they are on the Goddard campus. Persons discovered to be in violation of those laws may be required to leave the campus. Residency schedules include times for meetings of 12-step programs. Please see the Student Handbooks for a discussion of drug and alcohol policies.
Parking cars at residencies is restricted to designated lots. Violators will be ticketed and/or towed.
