The University aims to cultivate a safe and secure environment in which all students can succeed and grow as engaged community members. We promote responsibility and encourage honesty, integrity and respect among Coker students. Ultimately, we promote intentional education, coordinated support, behavioral standards and fair processes.

While our efforts emphasize restorative practices for students the mission is inclusive and remains a comprehensive resource portal for faculty, staff and all stakeholders.
