The mission of Salisbury University is to empower students with the knowledge, skills and core values that contribute to active citizenship, gainful employment and life-long learning in a democratic society and interdependent world. The achievement of the University’s educational goals is a responsibility that must be shared by all. Therefore, Salisbury University expects and requires of all its students full cooperation in developing and maintaining a campus community in which high standards of courtesy and integrity are practiced by every member of the University community. Allegiance to these standards requires each member of the Salisbury University community to refrain from any behavior that serves to compromise the educational mission of the institution. Moreover, members of Salisbury University are discouraged from any behaviors that threaten the basic rights and privileges afforded to each member of the community as well as the respect every individual deserves. Choosing to join Salisbury University’s community obligates each member to live by the institution’s Code of Conduct and to uphold community standards at the University and in the greater Salisbury community and beyond.
