Item 6 Approval of Regulation – Student Conduct Code (Attachment 1, 2)

The Board of Trustees has responsibility for adopting regulations, therefore the purpose of this item is to present proposed amendments to the Student Conduct Code. When a student is charged with a conduct code violation, significant changes are:

  • If the charged student is found responsible, the Vice President for Student and International Affair, or designee, will determine an appropriate sanction.
  • The student may be removed from their housing assignment, have their contract cancelled and be prohibited from visiting the housing areas prior to the conduct hearing.
  • The time limit for sending a sanction letter to the student following the hearing will be 14 class days instead of 10 days. 

Any student charged and/or convicted with a criminal offense may be subjected to disciplinary action under the Student Conduct Code. The code requires students charged and/or convicted with a criminal offense to self report the situation.

 

Vice President Gonzalez will address the committee and present this regulation.

 

Proposed Action: Approval. Motion and second required.
