Student Life


Siena Heights University is dedicated to academic excellence and personal development. We encourage and promote the uniqueness of each person. However, we also recognize the interdependence of all members of the Siena Heights community.

For the University to accomplish its goals, it is most important that we maintain an environment in which all members of the community, at this Michigan small college, have the opportunity to develop spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically. To meet this obligation, the University seeks to provide an environment conducive to academic endeavors, social growth, and individual self-discipline for each student. To ensure that this environment is maintained, a conduct system has been established. This system is viewed by the University as the part of the educational experience, which occurs when a student’s conduct interferes with the University’s responsibility for insuring that all members of the University can attain their personal and professional goals.

The primary goal of the conduct system is to determine responsibility, and if applicable, facilitate change. Growth occurs when the individual who made a mistake realizes this mistake and accepts responsibility for his/her actions. Members of the University must be concerned with protecting their own dignity and respecting that of all individuals within our community.

All persons taking courses at Siena Heights University, both full time and part time, pursuing undergraduate, graduate, distance learning or non-degree programs on any campus are held accountable by the Code of Student Conduct
