Student Development

Mission Statement

The Office of Student Development fosters a safe and inclusive campus community by educating students on their responsibility to uphold the community standards of Moravian University. Using a restorative and developmental framework, we empower students to be accountable for the impact of their actions and to effectively resolve conflict.

Philosophy Statement

The philosophy and approach to student conduct at Moravian University is educational, focusing on student learning through individual growth and personal responsibility. Our goal is to help and encourage students to be successful citizens of their communities. Students take many steps through life’s journey that positively contribute to this goal, but there will invariably be some missteps as well. Violations of Moravian University policy as outlined in the Community Standards section of the Student Code of Conduct are examples of steps away from the individual's goals and from the Moravian University Community. 

Student Feedback:

"I have learned my lessons from this process and it has impacted me significantly, in more ways I could imagine. I cannot stress the importance of how bad drinking and driving is."

"I have learned how to effectively change the path I am on to better my future not only here at Moravian but after I leave."

"I have learned that the rules that are set forth by the University are not to get people in trouble but to protect the students, and they are only doing their job."
