Members of the community are expected to contribute positively to both the local and campus community by being responsible citizens. The civic responsibilities of a community member necessitate that the member develop a respect for the community standards and the authority of those standards. In conjunction with respect, the member should develop a willingness to be corrected in love when necessary.
Violations of civic responsibilities will result in institutional responses which appropriately correspond to the severity of the infraction. Expectations include:
- Local, State and Federal Laws: Students should abide by all local, state, and federal laws.
- Facilities: Students should not enter or occupy facilities without proper authorization.
- Keys: Possession or duplication of keys without proper authorization is prohibited.
- Undeveloped Properties: Areas of campus that are undeveloped (e.g., cross country course area, reservoir) should not be entered after sunset without proper authorization.
- Technological Property: Computer files, I.P. addresses, email, voicemail boxes or technological property of others should not be accessed without proper authorization. (See also Information Technology Services Memorandum of Understanding in General Policies and Procedures section.)
- Safety: Students should not engage in activities which pose a threat to their own safety or the safety of others, or that create unsafe environments (such as open flames).
- Fire Safety Equipment: Misusing fire safety equipment such as fire extinguishers, smoke detectors and other safety equipment is prohibited.
- Weapons: For reasons of safety, weapons are not permitted on campus or at University-related off-campus events without prior permission of the Vice President for Student Life or Associate Dean for Community Life. Weapons include but are not limited to firearms of any kind, fireworks/explosives, crossbows, and knives with blades more than 3.5 inches.
- Motor Vehicles: All motor vehicles must be registered and display a University parking permit. Failure to register a vehicle results in a $50 fine. Continued violations are subject to disciplinary action, as well as towing from campus. Parking regulations are posted on the Safety and Security website, asbury.edu./safety, and the web link is emailed to students each fall.
- Disruption to Normal Campus Functions: Students should refrain from activities that disrupt normal functioning in the classroom, residence halls and across the campus.
- Speakers: Students should obtain permission from the appropriate vice president before bringing an outside speaker to campus.
- Public Demonstrations: Permission must be obtained from the Vice President for Student Life at least 24 hours prior to conducting any public demonstration.
