Updated CES standards help students grow closer to Christ

Three students walk through the Taylor quad on campus.

The Church Board of Education announced today updates to the Student Ecclesiastical Endorsement, the Honor Code and Dress and Grooming Principles and Expectations for the Church Educational System (CES). These changes were made to help our campus community draw closer to Jesus Christ and strengthen the overall student experience. These adjustments will:

(1) adopt a principle-based approach, while retaining a set of common expectations;

(2) simplify and unify dress and grooming principles and expectations across CES campuses;

(3) better align the ecclesiastical endorsement interview with the ecclesiastical responsibilities of Church leaders.

All updates can be found here, along with questions and answers about the changes.
