As members of the College at Oneonta community, we have
responsibilities to ourselves, to others, and to the world around us. To
uphold the shared values of our community, you are expected to:
Our faculty and staff are committed to your academic success--the
primary focus of our campus community. In turn, they expect your best
individual efforts and dedication to your work, which you demonstrate
through attentive participation in classes, active involvement in the
academic and co-curricular programs of the campus, and productive use of
the College's educational resources.
Commit to civil behavior.
All members of the College at Oneonta community are expected to
respect others and their differences, because our human environment
values diversity. You should respect the College, its reputation, and
your physical surroundings. We all also need to recognize the duties of
our multiple citizenships--as members of our campus, the Oneonta area,
and the global community.
Enhance your personal development.
Your education should develop your ability to function as a
contributing member of our society. You will find countless opportunities
to participate in student life activities, athletics, and leadership
training, all of which develop skills which will serve you well for the
rest of your life. And since service to others is a hallmark of the
College, you are urged to enhance your own growth through volunteerism.
