RISD, as an artistic and academic community, intends to provide an atmosphere where art, design, study, and learning can take place alongside healthy recreation, relaxation and social development. This balanced atmosphere is dependent upon the willingness of all RISD community members to associate in such a way that personal freedom and responsibility co‐exist. Our on campus dining services provides RISD community with quality, delicious, and artfully prepared food.
Any student participating in a RISD meal plan acknowledges, therefore, the need for socially responsible behavior. They recognize the role of the Dining Staff in promoting such behavior and will accept reasonable disciplinary action for disregarding such behavior.
The student agrees to abide by all rules and regulations pertaining to Dining Services during the period covered by this agreement as outlined herein, and within the Student Handbook available online at http://www.risd.edu/Policies/Student_Life/.
