Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities


Students are members not only of the academic community of Morehouse College but also of the larger society, thereby retaining the rights, guarantees, and protections afforded to and the responsibilities held by all citizens. A student is not immune to prosecution by local, state, or federal law enforcement agencies irrespective of whether the college initiates judicial proceedings in a given situation.


Morehouse College Campus Safety police officers have the same law enforcement powers, including the power of arrest, as a law enforcement officer of the local government with police jurisdiction over such campus.
