Office of Student Conduct

The University expects its students to conduct their lives in a responsible manner. Students who exhibit behavior which is inconsistent with the stated mission and goals of the University and the regulations which flow from them are subject to formal
 disciplinary procedures.

As a member of DeSales University, I will conduct myself in a respectful manner with dignity and honesty in the Salesian tradition of humility and gentleness.
