Code of Conduct

“Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers” (Ephesians 4:29).

“It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak” (Romans 14:21).

“. . . Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s” (I Corinthians 6:19–20).

Based upon these and other Scriptures, Telos students are expected to reflect Godly character in their speech, dress, and actions. Modest and professional dress is expected at every Telos event, and disruptive language or behavior will not be permitted. At all times, Telos students are to be characterized by Godly qualities including, but not limited to, honesty, courtesy, diligence, and humility.

Manifestations of negative character including, but not limited to, misrepresentations on applications for admission, lying, profanity, immoral behavior, plagiarism, unauthorized collaboration or discussion with other students about graded writing assignments or papers, and cheating on exams are clear violations of the code of conduct.

If a student’s conduct, speech, or dress is not consistent with the character standards set forth here, the issue will be addressed in accordance with Matthew 18:15–16. If repentance and restoration are not accomplished, the student will be subject to dismissal from the Institute.
