Faculty Complaints/Student Conduct

The University Policy Register and the Digest of Rules and Regulations outlines the procedure for addressing faculty complaints about inappropriate student conduct. The Dean shall appoint a student conduct coordinator, a member of the Dean’s administrative staff. The Dean will also recommend at least two full-time faculty or staff members as hearing officers, who, along with student representatives, will hear cases convened at the discretion of the conduct coordinator. Such behavior as deemed disruptive to the integrity of the class or that presents an implied or direct threat to the instructor or classroom progress should be brought to the attention of the Student Conduct Officer. He or she may then initiate the formal process of a hearing to determine a student’s right to remain in the class or in the University.
