Community Standards Council
The mission of the Community
Standards Council [CSC] is to help foster and maintain a peaceful and
purposeful community within the residence halls. This goal includes educating
students in responsibilities and opportunities for community living. The CSC
monitors rule infractions stipulated by the Residence Life Housing Agreement
and the Student Handbook website. A values violation is defined by the
Code of Values outlined in the Samford University Student Handbook website. Values violations will be
sent to the Values Advocate, and a residence life violation will be sent to the
CSC for review. A values violation may be referred to the CSC at the request of
the Values Advocate.
The CSC consists of seven students
(three of whom are resident assistants) selected by a committee. One residence
life professional staff member serves as the CSC adviser. The CSC adviser is a
nonvoting member; but if the CSC is unable to hear a case, then the CSC adviser
will hear the incident.
