Wells College is dedicated to the personal development and academic excellence of its students. Wells students possess certain rights and privileges together with corresponding duties and responsibilities. Every student is entitled to socially responsible freedom of action as an expression of collegiate activity. Each individual is due the respect of his/her personal dignity and property. In turn, each student is responsible for maintaining community standards of behavior that do not interfere with the rights of others or the effective functioning of the College.


The foundation of student conduct at Wells College is the Honor Code and the Community Standards Statement. The Honor Code requires all students to act with integrity and to hold themselves and others accountable. The Community Standards Statement requires all students, faculty and staff at the College to treat one another with dignity and respect and to respect differences.
