General Conduct

Co-curricular life comprises a significant portion of the time a student spends at Liberty and the University expects students to take responsibility for their behavior and choices. When those choices violate the Honor Code, the University has a responsibility to administer discipline with love and mercy.


Respect is an attitude and behavior that should be afforded to all members of the University community through proper acknowledgment of their personal and professional position. Students are asked to observe academic courtesy with regard to all titles (Dr., Dean, Mr., Mrs. or Miss). Students should not use first names when speaking to or about faculty or staff members. Students are expected to exercise proper decorum in the classroom. Men must remove headwear in classrooms and academic buildings.

Students are required to respect Liberty's Statement of Doctrine and Purpose and are not permitted to engage in any activity on or off campus that would compromise the testimony or reputation of the University or cause disruption to Liberty's Christian learning environment. Proper respect should be shown from one student to another at all times. No hazing or student initiations will be permitted.

Derogatory comments of a sexual, religious or racial nature will not be tolerated. Students are expected to treat Liberty University faculty and students in a spirit of Christian love, mutual respect, and individual dignity.
