Student Code of Conduct Appendix 11

Student Code of Conduct Appendix 11

Effective February 1, 2021

This agreement makes clear the expectation that we all commit to a strong regimen of personal hygiene and responsibility that protects individuals and the community. In turn, the college has developed an intense sanitizing and cleaning plan for classrooms, residence halls, and other common spaces. What students should know about returning to campus.

Signage will be posted across campus to encourage and reinforce the message of personal responsibility to protect the health and safety of the community. Students are urged to abide by the expectations displayed on these signs and encourage others to join them.

The college reserves the right to update and make edits to this document to be in line with the latest guidance from local, state, and national public health agencies as well as government officials. All updates to the document will be clearly noted with the date and posted on the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities website. This document supersedes any previous policies or practices.
