The purpose of the Student Code of Conduct is not to restrict student freedoms but to protect the rights of individuals in their academic pursuits. Students are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with generally accepted standards of scholarship and conduct. All students have the right to a safe, peaceful, quality and honest educational environment. Therefore, when in the judgment of College officials a student’s conduct disrupts or threatens to disrupt the College community, appropriate disciplinary action will be taken to restore and protect the mission, safety, peace, and integrity of the College.

Implementation of Disciplinary Procedures

The Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs is designated by the Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management to implement Student Code of Conduct disciplinary procedures. The Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs serves as the Student Conduct Officer in disciplinary investigations. Other administrators may be designated to serve as the Student Conduct Officer in the absence of the Assistant Vice President. To protect the safety of victims and to promote accountability, training is provided for Student Conduct Officers and Judiciary Committee members.

Student Conduct Awareness Team (SCAT)

Student behavior that poses, or may reasonably be considered to pose, a threat to the safety, security, and well-being of the campus community, is reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the College’s Student Conduct Awareness Team (SCAT). The Student Conduct Awareness Team assesses a variety of factors before determining the appropriate steps to address the situation such as the available evidence and the severity of the concern. As needed, the team also solicits the assistance of outside professionals such as the National Center for Higher Education Risk Management (NCHERM).
