Classroom Code of Conduct

Professionalism

Brown College believes in providing skills-based education to our student in dozens of different disciplines. One of the primary goals of our institution is to make available skills-based training that will provide the foundation to be successful in different professions. Another, but equally important goal is to assist each student in preparing themselves to be successful in the work environment on a personal level. To this end, Brown College expects all students, staff and faculty to behave in a professional and appropriate manner that supports

Student Code of Conduct Policy

Brown College is an academic community committed to the educational and personal growth of its students. Behavior that infringes upon rights, safety or privileges, or that impedes the educational process is unacceptable and may lead to sanctions up to and including expulsion from the school.

Brown College believes strongly in promoting the development of personal, professional and social responsibility. Brown College also believes in a humanistic approach to discipline conducive to academic pursuits. However, Brown College recognizes that its responsibility for the protection of personal and institutional rights and property is a primary focus of the disciplinary process.

Therefore, the Brown College administration reserves the right to develop any policy or take any action(s) deemed appropriate to maintain the safety and well-being of any or all students. Student conduct offenses may be related to persons, property, campus operations, and welfare, health or safety of students, faculty and staff.

Students are encouraged to share personal experiences while participating in classes at Brown College. However, students must be aware that should they disclose to any Brown College faculty members or staff information that may cause harm to themselves or others, faculty members and staff are required to report such information to the Dean of Education.

Courteous behavior and professional conduct, appropriate to a professional environment, is to be displayed at all times. Inappropriate conduct and/or communication will not be tolerated and may be a cause for sanctions or dismissal.

Every student is subject to federal and state law and respective county and city ordinances. The conviction of a student for any criminal offense which interferes with the orderly operation of the school or which the administration feels would endanger members of the Brown College community shall be subject to disciplinary action. Infringements of the Student Code of Conduct are handled by the Brown College Dean of Education. Conduct decisions made by the Dean of Education may be appealed to the Appeals Committee for review.
