Code of Conduct

29 Classroom Behavior

Classroom Behavior 

All students are entitled to an atmosphere that permits and encourages learning. You are expected to behave in the classroom in a manner that will not interfere with the rights and learning of other students. While in the class, the faculty and other students expect that you will treat them respectfully and politely, even if classroom discussions become heated.  Acceptable classroom behavior is expected regardless of the type of instructional delivery, such as zoom, online, etc.  The primary responsibility for managing the classroom environment rests with the faculty. Students who engage in behavior or acts that result in disruption of a class may be directed by the faculty member to leave the class for the remainder of the class period. Any student removed from class will be required to meet with the appropriate College officials, as instructed by their faculty member. During this meeting, they will discuss the behavior’s negative effect on the learning environment, explore the causes of the behavior, discuss appropriate corrective measures, and review the possible consequences of any further classroom disruptions. Longer suspensions from a class or dismissal on student conduct grounds must be preceded by a student conduct hearing, as set forth in the student conduct process. Interim measures may be taken in order to protect others during the investigative and conduct hearing process.
