Responsibilities for Behavior and Attitudes

Certain behaviors known to be morally wrong by biblical teaching are not acceptable for members of the George Fox University community. They include theft, lying, all forms of dishonesty, gossip, slander, backbiting, profanity, vulgarity (including crude language), sexual immorality (including adultery, homosexual behavior, and premarital sex), drunkenness, immodesty of dress, and occult practices.

The process is intended to be redemptive, restorative and to assist the student in making better decisions in the future. Censequences given are appropriate for each situation. Some violations may result in short or long term suspension or dismissal.

The entire policy can be seen in the George Fox University student handbook, which can be viewed here.
