Community Behavioral Standards (CBS)
At the beginning of the fall semester,
the residents of each hall meet to determine the guidelines for living
together in community. The process, called Community Behavioral Standards (CBS),
is led by the student senators from each of the halls. Students discuss
and decide what the guidelines in their residence hall will be for visitation
and quiet hours, as well as for the use, cleaning and maintenance of their
community areas, including the lounges, kitchen, laundry facilities and
study rooms. The members of the community review and may revise their
CBS policies during the year.
The ASWU dorm senators and student-life staff have set these policies
and consequences. They have been set in place in order to give the residents
of Whitworth University a safe living environment. While alcohol is never allowed on campus, possession of empty alcohol containers is permissible in limited numbers.
- Alcohol containers: No one under the age of 21 will be allowed to
have any sort of alcohol container. Those over 21 may have no more than
five empty containers.
Consequences: Warning on first occasion. After warning, $5 fine per
container. Storage is available for those rare occasions when someone
has a unique bottle or container that has sentimental value.
- Public drunkenness: Public drunkenness is defined as being on campus
under the influence of alcohol and engaging in behavior that is offensive
or that causes a resident to complain.
Consequence: On first violation, the
student is to be responsible for any mess s/he has made and to serve
three hours of community service as determined by the resident director.
A second offense will result in five hours of community service. The third
violation will result in the student being referred to the counseling
center for evaluation and may result in additional sanctions.
