Student Code of Conduct-Equity Grievance
It should be emphasized that when a student’s violation of the law also adversely affects the college’s pursuit of its recognized educational objectives, the college may enforce its own regulations regardless of any civil proceeding or dispositions. When a student violates a college regulation, they are subject to disciplinary action by the college whether or not their conduct violates civil law. If a person’s behavior simultaneously violates a college regulation and the civil laws off-campus, they may incur penalties described by civil authorities. College discipline will be initiated only in instances of student misconduct, which distinctly and adversely affects the college’s pursuit of its recognized educational purposes. Disciplinary measures appropriate to the offense up to and including dismal from the college may be imposed.
