Rocky Mountain College seeks to act in your best interests and to provide protection, guidance and care. We value individual responsibility before God, and ask you to agree to the following community responsibilities. Although not all of these are commanded by scripture, they are shared at RMC as a means to build character and strengthen community. If you have a mental reservation about a specific commitment, please ask to speak to the Dean of Students or an assistant before signing.
Commitment to take responsibility for personal spiritual growth.
As a member of the body of Christ and the RMC community, you assume responsibility for your own walk with God. This means developing personal and corporate spiritual disciplines, participating in a local church and in on-campus chapel/small group experiences.
Commitment to facilitate a spiritually healthy environment.
As a member of the RMC community you assume responsibility for your relationships with others. This means living in an accepting and respectful manner, and offering restoration and care so that those that attend RMC will find a place of safety, freedom and growth.
Commitment to abstain from practices and attitudes not sanctioned by scripture.
Scripture identifies as wrong such specific acts as drunkenness, occult practices, any form of intimate premarital or extra marital sexual involvement, pornographic involvement, and homosexual behaviour. As a member of the RMC community you are required to abstain from these practices. We also guard against such attitudes as greed, jealousy, envy, lust, bitterness, unrestrained anger and unforgiveness.
Commitment to exercise the mind of Christ in matters of conduct and entertainment choices.
As an institution building world-influencers, we call you to allow the mind of Christ to guide your decisions at all times and to refrain from the harmful use of any substance or harmful activity that may have a negative effect upon the name of Christ, upon the reputation of Rocky Mountain College, upon your fellow RMC community members, upon your present and future Christian ministry, and upon your personal mind and body. Members of the college community are expected to refrain from the illegal or harmful use of such substances.
Commitment to exercise the mind of Christ is also a commitment to establish Christ-like virtues in relationships, time and choice of entertainment.
Commitment to accept reproof and guidance when needed.
As a member of the community, you make a commitment to respond to the correction and discipline of the community. This means that you place a level of trust in the people who want to positively influence your life. The faculty and staff want to be worthy of your trust in all their dealings with you.
The use of alcohol, tobacco and illegal drugs is prohibited at RMC functions and activities, on RMC property or facilities, or when representing RMC.
As a student of Rocky Mountain College, I agree to support and abide by these commitments and expectations.
