Corporate fines encourage residential students to collectively assume responsibility for maintaining an equitable and healthy living environment. An important element of residential communities is students holding their peers responsible for their actions. Students individually and collectively are financially responsible for damages that occur in each residential facility (i.e. lounges, hallways, bathrooms etc.).
As members of a residence hall (or floor), house or apartment, all students are expected to meet together to resolve conflicts related to damages that cannot be identified to a specific student(s) by other means. Corporate fines are assessed to student accounts in the Business Office at the end of the fall semester (if moving off-campus or transferring) and at the close of the spring semester.
