In his Foundation Deed, Isaiah Williamson charged the college to undertake “the moral and religious training of the scholars.” To that end, and as part of its mission to foster the values of faith, integrity, diligence, excellence, and service, the college has established a Conduct Code. The code is designed: to protect the rights of each individual in the Williamson community; to provide a clean, safe, and well-ordered community with an atmosphere conducive to education; and to help students entering careers in business and industry develop the responsibility, discipline, respect for authority, and ability to follow instructions that are essential for success.
There is a philosophical understanding that a Williamson education molds young men by creating standards towards which each student is expected to rise. Consequently, there is a greater expectation of Seniors than of Juniors and a greater expectation of Juniors than of Freshmen. As such, disciplinary standards in the Conduct Code have been developed to reflect the greater emphasis on positive leadership and responsibility as the student progresses through his education at Williamson. It does not include every possible sub-classification of the offenses indicated, but offers a general guide to the rules governing the conduct of individual students and student groups. Because admission to Williamson is a privilege, it is assumed that the college’s regulations will be followed diligently.
