"At the core of the College of Charleston community are individuals from diverse backgrounds whose lives are intertwined in support of the uplifting of the human condition through comprehensive studies.  As with all communities, there is a moral code of ethical behavior that binds participants together and a body of official rules and regulations that defines personal freedoms and responsibilities.  The latter is codified in our Honor Code and Code of Conduct.  They apply to all members of the college community and are intended to promote an atmosphere of trust and fairness in the classroom and in the conduct of daily campus life."
