The Code applies to the on-campus conduct of all students and registered student organizations. The Code also applies to the off-campus conduct of students and registered student organizations in direct connection with:
- Academic course requirements or any credit-bearing experiences, such as internships, co-ops, field trips, study abroad, or student teaching;
- Any activity supporting pursuit of a degree, such as research at another institution or a professional practice assignment;
- Any activity sponsored, conducted, or authorized by the College or by registered student organizations;
- Any activity that causes substantial destruction of property belonging to the College or members of the College community or causes serious harm to the health or safety of members of the College community.
The College reserves the right to administer the Code and proceed with the hearing process even if the student withdraws from the College, is no longer enrolled in classes, or subsequently fails to meet the definition of a student while a disciplinary matter is pending.
Students continue to be subject to city, state, and federal laws while at the College, and violations of those laws may also constitute violations of the Code. In such instances, the College may proceed with College disciplinary action under the Code independently of any criminal proceeding involving the same conduct and may impose sanctions for violation of the Code even if such criminal proceeding is not yet resolved or is resolved in the student’s favor.
