Office of Community Standards


As stated in the University's Mission Statement, Misericordia University fosters a cooperative environment in which students, faculty, and staff demonstrate a personal concern for each individual as a valued member of the University community.

The Office of Community Standards allows for the community to bring forth concerns they may have so that our students can live and learn in a safe environment that allows for growth by engaging in educational conversations with those of concern about how they can be positive contributors to the educational environment. Our role is also to be sure students realize their behavior not only has an impact on the University, but also how they can thrive in the community they choose to live after graduation.

The Office of Community Standards is located in the Banks Student Center and is open from 8:30 until noon and 1:00 pm until 4:30 pm Monday through Friday. Students may come in person to file a complaint, call by phone at 570-674-8318, or use our online incident reporting form located on the left hand side of this page.
