So what happens if someone breaks a rule at MVNU?
We want you to be held accountable for your actions in a number of ways when University guidelines are broken. Some campus privileges may be taken away for a period of time. You may be required to meet regularly with a staff person or a small group of students for growth and encouragement. You may have to pay a fine.
When a student violates mission related policies (see
Student Life Handbook), suspension or dismissal may result.
Remember, we see discipline as a way to help you grow, just
like that budding pianist or athlete. Sometimes the best
thing that could happen to you is for you to be held accountable
for your actions, even though it may sting for a while. It teaches
responsibility and builds Christ-like character; something we
all need (Proverbs 3:11, 12; Hebrews 12:10, 11).
If you have questions about some disciplinary action, you
can always talk to one of the Student Development Staff about it.
We will be careful to handle the matter privately and with respect
for your individual rights.
The Student Development Staff are also
privileged to answer your questions, give counsel when you ask
for it and pray with you about any area of your life.
