Student Code of Conduct

721.0 Student Code of Conduct

Students at Umpqua Community College are expected to conduct themselves in a manner compatible with an educational environment and in accordance with standards of the college that are designed to perpetuate its educational purposes.

The college, because of its responsibility to provide a safe and supportive learning environment, has certain obligations that need to be reflected as rules in the governance of student conduct and discipline.

Through this Student Code, Umpqua Community College describes 1) the responsibilities, rights and freedoms afforded to students and 2) conduct that would interfere with the educational mission of the institution.

The provisions of the Student Code of Conduct are not to be regarded as a contract between the students and the College. The College reserves the right to amend any provision herein at any time in accordance with established College policies. Communication of any changes will be made to the College community in an appropriate and timely fashion.

This Student Code of Conduct will apply to conduct which occurs on College premises and to conduct which occurs elsewhere during the course of a College-sponsored activity. Off-campus behavior that adversely affects the College and/or the pursuit of its objectives may also be subject to the Umpqua Community College Student Code of Conduct.

The Vice President for Student Development (VPSD) is responsible for the administration of the Student Code of Conduct. In the absence of the VPSD, the President may appoint a designee to administer the Student Code of Conduct.
