Community Guidelines

Student groups applying for funds and other resources from the College are required to be in good standing with the Dean of Students’ office. It is important for student organisations to be held to common standards and expectations of integrity and behavior. This policy aims to outline and identify standards of behavior in which Yale-NUS students are expected to conduct themselves, whether that is individually, in a group, or on behalf of a group. It outlines the process by which incidents can be reported, documented, and resolved, so that students are led to take responsibility for their actions.
