A community is a difficult reality to achieve: so many people, so many differing backgrounds, so many standards and understandings of what is right and wrong. However, community is possible. Gardner people – students, faculty, and staff – seek community and hold it as an ideal which is often achieved. No community is possible which does not provide the necessary processes for open, honest, and caring communication. Living in close daily association with others requires sacrifice and loving adjustment in personal liberties. The behaviour of each individual affects the well-being of others in important ways; it also affects the degree to which community is realized. For these reasons, it is assumed that the student willingly and intelligently commits him or herself to the responsibilities and privileges of community life.

In order to help you understand what is expected of you in that commitment, this letter is both one of intent and one of agreement. You are stating your intention to come to Gardner College during the next term, and you are agreeing to openly accept those “privileges and responsibilities” which are part of the Gardner lifestyles.

A. LIFESTYLE STANDARDS: The standards of the students, faculty, staff, and alumni of Gardner College are founded in evangelical Christianity. The College’s social expectations emanate from the value of modeling a Christian lifestyle. Evangelical Christians are guided by biblical standards of moral integrity, social consciousness, personal health, and effective Christian witness. To encourage individual behaviour under these standards, and to ensure a spirit of Christian community, the College does not permit: participation in activities which disrupt the educational processes of the College; use of tobacco, alcoholic beverages, or controlled substances; acts which involve gambling or dishonest behaviour. Though the College maintains respect for the individual and appreciation for personal rights, students participating in these activities are subject to denial of admission, cancellation of registration, or disciplinary action. In order to maintain an effective Christian witness, students are expected to avoid questionable practices in entertainment, conduct, and appearance. Social dancing is not permitted on or off campus as a College-sponsored activity.

B. CHAPEL ATTENDANCE: Chapel in all its forms is an integral part of the educational experience as the total community gathers for worship, quest, and inspiration. Because of its importance and its intended centrality in the life of the Gardner community, attendance is required.

C. RESIDENTIAL LIFE: Additional expectations for resident students include dorm hours as posted in the student handbook and/or in the living areas. There is also a policy governing the visitation by male and female students in the living quarters of the opposite sex.

I recognize the importance of commitment to openness of communication, understanding of expectations and standards, and loving adjustment to achieve the ideal of Christian community. Therefore, I commit myself to living in accord with the guidelines, expectations, and standards as set forth in this letter and as further explained in the enclosed student handbook.
