Affairs Policy113 using the following procedure. The instructor will inform a student if
he or she is disruptive. If the behavior continues or escalates, the instructor will ask the
student to leave the class for the day, possibly resulting in grade penalties for work missed.
If the student does not leave, the instructor will call Public Safety to remove the student.
If disruptive behavior occurs during academic activities conducted outside of a physical
classroom, such as in on-line instruction or during a field trip, the instructor may remove
students from participation in that activity.
Instructors should call Public Safety immediately if any of the following occur:
A student threatens or intimidates faculty, staff, or other students
A student engages in violent behavior
Faculty suspect criminal activity
A situation begins to escalate, such as a discussion turning into shouting
Any time a student is dismissed from class, the instructor will complete the Disruptive
Behavior Form (Academic Affairs Policy 113).  Within five college instructional days of
the incident, the instructor and student will meet to discuss the disruptive behavior and
develop a corrective behavior to prevent future disruptions. (
A “college instructional day” is
a weekday when classes meet or final exams are scheduled.
) The instructor will retain a copy
of the form and submit a copy to the Department Chair and to the student. If Public Safety
was called to remove the student from class, the instructor will also send a copy of the form
to Public Safety. If the student fails to meet with the instructor or refuses to sign the form,
the instructor will note this on the form and send it forward to the Department Chair five
college instructional days after the incident.
Five college instructional days after receiving the Disruptive Behavior Form, the Department
Chair will sign the form, deliver a copy to an Academic Dean on that campus, and retain a copy.
The Academic Deanwill review the formand determine if further disciplinary action is required
as governed by Academic Affairs Policy 113 and/or by the Student Code of Conduct.  Five
college instructional days after receiving the Disruptive Behavior Form, the Dean will sign the
form and send a copy to the Vice President of Academic Affairs (or the office/designee of the
Vice President of Academic Affairs), send a copy to the instructor, and retain a copy.
The office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs (or the office/designee of the Vice
President of Academic Affairs) will conduct a records search each time a disruptive
behavior violation is entered.  If three (3) or more violations of the disruptive behavior
policy (Academic Affairs Policy 113) are found, the Vice President of Academic Affairs will
direct an Expulsion Panel (Academic Affairs Policy 100) to convene to decide if the student
should be expelled. Disruptive conduct of a sexual nature may require further action (Anti-
Harassment and Anti-Retaliation Policy 425).
The student may appeal the instructor’s decision by delivering a completed Appeal of
Instructor’s Decision Form (Academic Affairs Policy 113) to the Department Chair within five
college instructional days of receiving the Disruptive Behavior Form. The Department Chair
will schedule ameeting with the instructor and the student within five (5) college instructional
days of receiving the appeal form. The Department Chair will inform the student and the
instructor of his or her decision, inwriting, within five college instructional days of themeeting.
The Department Chair’s decision may be appealed by delivering a completed Appeal of
Department Chair’s Decision Form (Academic Affairs Policy 113) to the Academic Dean
