Student Life :

Student Self-Governance

From their first day at the TOU, students become part of a strong residential

community based on student self-governance, an experience that builds

knowledge, character, and independence.

Self-governance means that students have significant freedom to develop their

talents and make decisions that matter to University life. With that freedom

come high expectations of responsibility. Students are expected to hold themselves

and their peers to high standards inside and outside the classroom, and

to engage ethically in their local, national, and international communities.

Preparing students for global citizenship relies on the high expectations and

levels of responsibility that come from student self-governance, a combination

that makes the TOU undergraduate experience unique. Within the framework

of student self-governance, students have the latitude to be creative, assume

ownership, develop leadership, take risks, and learn from their mistakes. At the

same time, the University provides support and guidance.

own idea on a new one and deliver it to the students self-governance for consideration.
