Student Conduct

  • A Safe, Responsible Community

    Student ConductThe College has the authority and responsibility to establish rules and standards that may require academic, moral and ethical behavior that is considered above the standards of society at-large. The actions of all Dean Community members must not impose upon other community members. The principal responsibility for proper conduct rests with each student, and as much as possible, he or she is encouraged to resolve conflicts of individual rights and responsibilities himself or herself. The College will become involved, however, when a student cannot resolve a conflict himself or herself; when there exists a reasonable basis to believe that local, state or federal laws have been broken; when there could be or is a potential for personal harm or property damage; or when there exists a reasonable basis to believe that College regulations or policies have been violated.

    Dean requires students to obey local, state and federal laws. Also, the College has regulations and policies that it expects students to follow both on-campus and at College-sponsored events. The College reserves the right to take action against students whose behavior, either on or off-campus, blemishes the College's general image or reputation or otherwise evidences disregard for the safety, well-being or rights of others. Students whose off-campus activities have a direct bearing on the College or members of the Dean community could be subject to student conduct action. Also, if a student is involved in an illegal act off-campus, the College reserves the right to initiate student conduct action.
