EXPLO Admission Considerations + Community Standards

Year after year, students and their parents/guardians describe the environment of EXPLO Pre-College + Career and EXPLO at Sarah Lawrence College as accepting, nurturing, safe, and fun. Community Standards: EXPLO Pre-College + Career and EXPLO at Sarah Lawrence College

EXPLO prides itself on creating an atmosphere that nurtures the diverse interests, needs, and backgrounds of our student and staff populations. Students attending EXPLO have a unique opportunity to investigate a variety of new skills, talents, and interests within an environment structured for personal choice and growth. As with many personal freedoms, the liberty granted to students at EXPLO carries with it limits and respon- sibilities. We expect students to uphold our community standards and to refrain from any behavior that jeopardizes the well-being of themselves or others at the program. A Safe, Supportive Atmosphere

Rules for Student Conduct

In order to maintain a safe environment for everyone, EXPLO has expectations and rules for student con- duct. These are more fully expressed in the EXPLO Essentials guide, which is available to enrolled students in the spring. The following list is not meant to be exhaustive, but instead gives some examples of our standards and expectations. A student who violates a Major Rule, or whose conduct, in the sole discretion of Exploration Summer Programs, warrants them leaving the program, will be subject to immediate dis- missal, with no refund of tuition or traveling expenses. Remaining in the presence of an open violation of a Major Rule may constitute a Major Rule violation; that is, if you are in the presence of another student who is breaking a Major Rule, it is as if you are breaking the rule yourself.

Some examples of conduct that are in violation of the Major Rules include:

• Use, possession, or distribution of drugs, alcohol, cigarettes or tobacco (including tobacco, marijuana or hashish pipes or papers, vaping devices, e-cigarettes, and alcohol containers) or misuse of prescription or over-the-counter medication • Use, possession, or distribution of weapons, violence or threat of violence, hazing and harassment, misuse of computers and electronic communications, and bullying • Use, possession, or distribution of stolen property as well as vandalism, damage, or the willful destruction of property
