DSU Code of Conduct 2016-2017

Please read, review with your student(s) and sign form for each student enrolled in the program.

The DSU Code of Conduct is presented to provide students and others in the DSU community with a clear understanding of DSU’s expectations for participant conduct, demeanor, and actions while at DSU. All participants of DSU After School Programs as well as DSU Special Events are required to read and understand the DSU Code of Conduct.


The primary purpose of our coming together each day is to develop each student’s character, personal interests, talents, and sense of self. Accordingly, the purpose of DSU’s Code of Conduct is to foster and preserve a positive, creative, engaging, challenging, safe, and inclusive environment. The DSU community expects all of its members to conduct themselves according to a set of principles based on respect, responsibility, honesty, gratitude, humility and consideration of others in the community. The social culture at DSU is grounded largely in respect for one another, and good manners.
