William Jewell expects from its community an understanding of the campus ethos as well as an understanding of the core values of the institution. Consequently, the college has established a set of Community Standards which all individuals, groups, and organizations can use as a guide. The college’s students, faculty, staff, administration, and trustees, as well as any campus organizations, are expected to understand and embrace, and are encouraged to follow, the following Standards:
We believe in a college where students show respect for each other, themselves and the college community as a whole.
We believe in promoting, fostering, and expecting academic excellence from every member of the college community.
We encourage members of our community to ask questions, search for answers and to exercise the true life of the mind.
We believe in taking responsibility for ourselves and for our college community.
We believe in serving our college, our community and our world.
We believe in the need for and importance of a strong spiritual foundation by which all members of our community can live, learn and grow.
