The Collegium Dress Code

Collegium faculty members and students should always dress in a manner that reflects their Christian dignity.  Thus, the Collegium faculty members, staff members, and students are asked to adhere to the following dress code:

 

Faculty and Staff

 

At the Collegium – classes and official school functions

Men

  • Men must wear tucked-in shirts, ties, belts, and slacks.

    • For more formal occasions, men should wear coats, solid-colored shirts, ties, belts, slacks, and dress shoes.

  • Clothing should not be form fitting or skin tight.

  • Transparent or translucent fabrics should be avoided.

  • Dress shoes or dress sandals with socks are acceptable; flip-flops are not.

  • Athletic shoes are not permitted.

 

Women

  • Women must wear dresses or skirts and blouses.

    • Skirts or dresses must cover the knees comfortably when you are seated.

    • Slits in skirts or dresses must be below the knees.

    • Shoulders, chest, and back must be covered.

  • Clothing should not be form fitting or skin tight.

  • Transparent, translucent, or lacy fabrics should be avoided, except, perhaps, as trim.

  • Dress shoes or dress sandals are acceptable; flip-flops are not.

  • Athletic shoes are not permitted.

 

 

Outside The Collegium – at the resident apartments, around town, etc.

Men and Women

The Collegium cannot monitor faculty dress outside of Collegium activities.  We anticipate that faculty may dress more casually at these times.   We also expect faculty members to observe the same principles of modesty that they do on campus, even if in more casual attire.  We also expect faculty members to be mindful that they are always representatives of The Collegium.

Everyone

 

At The Collegium – classes and official school functions

  • Clothing with holes or patches is not permitted.

  • If symbols or lettering on clothing might lend themselves to a questionable interpretation, don’t wear them.

  • Body piercings, other than women having pierced ears for earrings, are not permitted.

  • Tattoos are not permitted.

  • Jeans are not permitted.

 

NOTE:  There may be occasions when, even at a Collegium event, it may be appropriate for women to wear pants, or women or men to wear jeans.  Examples of such events might include zip-line riding, or hiking in the national forest or staff members and/or students engaged in physical labor.   Common sense will guide decisions about the occasions when the normal rules will be relaxed.  In any case, the norms of modesty will still prevail.  Students and faculty will be notified of any such relaxation of the rules.
