Core 10 Student Org Policies

The Fundamental Standard has set the standard of conduct for students at Stanford since it was articulated in 1896 and embodies the values and definition of good University citizenship. It states: Students at Stanford are expected to show both within and without the University such respect for order, morality, personal honor and the rights of others as is demanded of good citizens. Failure to do this will be sufficient cause for removal from the University.
