Know the Code: At Bethune-Cookman University each student is expected to know the Student Honor Code that sets the everyday standard of how a collegiate student should behave socially and academically. The Students Honor Code also describes the educational nature of the conduct process and outlines the rights and responsibilities granted to every student on our campus. The B-CU Honor Code fully engages the University Core Values - Faith, Integrity, Respect, Service, Thirst for Knowledge – and helps our students to understand the impact of their behaviors on their own lives, as well as the lives of others.
Throughout the academic year, students will be engaged in various activities, workshops, training, and competitions that will assist in their awareness of the expectations outlined in the Students Honor Code.
Title IX: The Whole IX Yards: Bethune-Cookman University creates an inclusive environment for all individuals regardless of sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, race, national origin, ethnicity, ability, belief systems, or military status in the execution of its educational programs, activities, daily operations, and admissions practices. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 states:
“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex (gender), be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
Title IX compliance is an important part of ensuring a safe and secure environment, optimum for learning and creative work. B-CU takes the safety and security of our students seriously. Sex Matters is a sexual assault prevention and response program designed to educate our campus community on healthy communication and ways to consensually and appropriately assert oneself in a relationship.
D.R.E.A.M. (Decisions Rule Everything Around Me): At the core of every success story is a set of sound decisions. On the path of success lies successes and failures. Both include lessons that help to define one’s ultimate trajectory. The key to success is not about momentary wins and losses, but about persistence and the acquirement of knowledge. The Dean of Students Office will host a series of programs that will expose students to critical decision-making opportunities and ways to rebound from “failures” and maximize the opportunities these moments will create. The DREAM Series will include the following quarterly events:
- The Maize of Life
- PAWprint Leadership Retreat
- Leadership Luncheon
- Dress Standard Fashion Show
