Community life and a successful experience at Prescott College depends on the commitment of each member of the community to a sense of responsibility for oneself and to other people. This commitment is represented by the Honor Conscience, which is an unwritten commitment to act with honesty, integrity and respect.
It is the responsibility of each individual in the College community to act with honesty, integrity and respect in personal, social and academic relationships, and with consideration and concern for the entire Prescott College community and its members.
Prescott College has not decreed an exhaustive set of rules since these may actually inhibit the development of self-regulation. Only the most necessary rules are made explicit (see below). All members of the Prescott College community are expected to act according to the Honor Conscience.
While we believe in allowing students to develop their own self-guidence and regulation, should a student fail to do so, and exhibit behavior(s) that display disrespect for the Honor Conscience, the College will hold such students responsible for their behavior.
Rules for Honoring Campus and Community
- Prescott College prohibits dogs or other animals in College buildings or to be left unattended in vehicles parked on campus. Dogs and other animals are allowed in outdoor common areas of campus, provided they are under owner control, i.e. on a leash of reasonable length, and do not pose a hazard or threat to others. Dogs and other pets may not be left unattended at any time. The College recognizes the importance of service dogs to those individuals who require their assistance and welcomes these animals in all areas of campus.
- Demonstrate respect for Prescott College and others by keeping bikes outside of buildings and parked in the proper location
- Respect your body and the environment by not smoking. Smoking is allowed in designated areas and must be 50 feet from a doorway or window. Dispose of your cigarette butt in a container-not on the ground.
- Be considerate of fellow students, faculty, and staff by finding alternate parking for your vehicles while out in the field. Space is limited and those working and studying on campus need the space.
- Help build a positive reputation for Prescott College with the Prescott community by using crosswalks and traffic signals while on foot.
- Do your part to save the planet’s energy by closing doors, turning off lights, and turning down the heat and air conditioning in College buildings.
- Preserve our environment by using recycle bins and trash cans and picking up after those who don't. "Leave no trace," is our ethic.
- All weapons are prohibited. Do not bring weapons of any kind to campus.
- Cooperate with the Prescott College community by getting all postings approved by the Student Life Office.
