Application of Law

The University does not seek to create an academic community detached from the reach of civil authorities, social customs or the important responsibilities of citizenship. In addition, Willamette abides by the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989 (see Alcohol Policy). The University’s rights and responsibilities process upholds the Standards of Conduct and is not a substitute for any civil or criminal court proceedings. Students do not surrender their constitutional rights as citizens by becoming members of the Willamette community.
