Michael R. Southern, Assistant Dean of the College for Student Conduct
Hours: Monday- Friday, 9 am to 5 pm
Office: Kilgore Center, Suite 200
The Conduct and Discipline system affects and applies to all currently enrolled students at the College. Its major purpose is to maintain the integrity of the College and members of the College Community, to promote and preserve an orderly environment, to exercise proper control over disciplinary matters, and to implement established judicial procedures in matters affecting all students accused of violating College policies, rules and regulations.
This system is also a developmental tool with two main objectives. While its primary objective is to provide a safe, secure and hospitable environment for all students and visitors, another goal is to assist students in developing a high degree of integrity and moral character by encouraging acceptance of personal responsibility for behavior. Secondly, the Conduct and Discipline system attempts to modify those behaviors deemed unacceptable by the College, including, but not limited to, lewd, rude, slanderous or hostile behavior toward anyone by any Morehouse student, faculty or staff member.
