The goal of the accountability process is to contribute to both the student’s personal and spiritual growth. The objectives of the process are:

  • To prayerfully and objectively assess what has occurred and indicate to the student what violation(s) has/have been committed;

  • To demonstrate care and acceptance for the individual even if behaviour may be unacceptable;

  • To educate the student, explaining the reasons for the Student Code of Conduct and/or policies and guidelines of the University;

  • For the student to decide that their future behaviour will be in keeping with the Student Code of Conduct and policies and guidelines of the University;

  • For the student to accept accountability for his or her behaviour;

  • To balance the needs of an individual along with the needs of the greater community.

Experience holding individuals accountable to their word has shown that repeated violations of the Student Code of Conduct and/or policies and guidelines of the University are often indicators of larger issues in the life of a student. It is hoped, therefore, that the accountability process may ultimately challenge the pursuit of change, godliness, and character development within individuals.
