Academic Disruption

In the event a student displays conduct in a faculty-student University function (class, laboratory, field experience, etc.) that is violent, threatening, abusive, or significantly disruptive to faculty members and others, the faculty member is advised to:
  1. Ask the student to leave the activity/classroom. If this fails, dismiss activity or class. If an altercation occurs, seek assistance from the University Police Department. Report the incident to the Assistant Vice President/Dean of Students.
  2. Hold a conference with the student to attempt to resolve the problem. A neutral third party may be asked to attend the conference.
  3. Report the incident in writing to the department chair with a summary of the student/faculty member conference.
  4. Report in writing the details of the incident and conference to the Assistant Vice President/Dean of Students and the appropriate college dean. (The Assistant Vice President/Dean of Students is responsible for maintaining and safeguarding all University discipline records and ensuring confidentiality.)
  5. If the department chair and faculty member are in agreement that the incident requires further disciplinary action, a request should be made in writing to the Assistant Vice President/Dean of Students. The Assistant Vice President/Dean of Students, having reviewed the submitted material, will hold an investigative hearing with the student and determine if further disciplinary action is warranted.
  6. The Assistant Vice President/Dean of Students will report in writing any additional disciplinary actions taken to the college dean, the department chair, the Provost, the faculty member making the charges, and the student(s) being charged.
