Student Responsibility and Community Standards

As a Catholic, Jesuit institution, Saint Louis University holds high standards regarding the conduct of its students both on and off the SLU campus.

Our mission in the Office of Student Responsibility and Community Standards is to help you, as students, think reflectively and act respectfully, both in how you care for your fellow community members and the ways you care for yourself. We actively support educational initiatives and restorative justice that prioritizes your learning and long-term success. We also play a central role in educating and training students, faculty and staff about our community standards, values and expectations.

Student Handbook

All University policies that pertain to students and student organizations, University community standards and residence hall policies are outlined in the Student Handbook. You are responsible for reviewing and understanding the policies and expectations for your behavior as a student at Saint Louis University.

Student Engagement Opportunities

The Office of Student Responsibility and Community Standards is committed to creating opportunities to facilitate peer-to-peer learning. Students can apply to be officers on our Community Standards Appeal Board, to volunteer to assist in co-facilitating workshops or to join peer-education programs that work closely with our office to promote well-being on campus.

Student Appeal Board

The Student Appeal Board consists of undergraduate students who decide the final determination of disciplinary cases.


An internship in our office normally lasts a semester. It's an opportunity to learn how the conduct process works at the University.

If you are interested in any of these volunteer opportunities, e-mail and a representative from the office will contact you.
