Student Rights & Responsibilities
Cornell considers and deals with its students as adults. The College delineates student rights and has expectations for responsibilities students will assume. Self-governing residence halls allow students the opportunity to administer themselves within the larger context of college life. High-performing self-governance, characterized by mutual respect and civil discourse, contributes to a harmonious campus community. When self-government ceases to function successfully or when students do not uphold College expectations, intervention through the College conduct system may be necessary.
The following pages introduce you to rights and responsibilities at Cornell and describe conduct procedures for dealing with inappropriate student conduct.
