PLEASE READ THE “LIFESTYLE COMMITMENT” BELOW
As representatives of Jesus Christ, students are responsible to demonstrate a lifestyle
consistent with His character. They are expected to be men and women of high moral
character whose sexual conduct is consistent with the standards of Scripture. This includes
abstaining from homosexual, premarital, and extramarital sexual conduct.
Hudson Taylor University recognizes the freedom of each student to develop personal
standards under the leadership of the Holy Spirit. However, since people in the community
recognize students at the University as Christian leaders, certain exemplary standards of
conduct and appearance are to govern the student body (Rom 14:21-22). Therefore the use of
tobacco and any of its electronic substitutes, and the use of alcoholic beverages, except for
liturgical, ceremonial, medicinal, or other exceptional instances, are not considered suitable
for the University faculty, staff, and students, all of whom are expected to abide by this
standard.
The appearance of Hudson Taylor University students, while on campus is expected to reflect
Christian modesty, maturity, discretion, and respect. Additionally, students are expected,
while in classes and chapel, to dress with neatness and cleanliness following the standards as
defined by Hudson Taylor University.
*For more details about personal conduct, please refer to “Hudson Tayor University Student
Handbook”(p.22).
BY SIGNING BELOW YOU ARE STATING THAT YOU AGREE TO LIVE BY THE
STANDARDS OF CONDUCT STATED ABOVE
