DISCIPLINARY PROCEDURES

 

STUDENT BEHAVIOUR
Students of Lethbridge Community College are expected to conduct themselves so that:

  1. safety is ensured for themselves and others, and
  2. learning effectiveness of each student and the class as a whole is maintained, and
  3. college equipment and facilities are protected from adverse use. All students are subject to the rules and regulations of the College and may be expelled or dismissed if their conduct or progress is unsatisfactory.

Expulsion from the College is the most serious action that the institution can take against a student. This will be done only if a student’s behaviour seriously jeopardizes the well-being of other students, the integrity of College policies or College facilities.

INTELLECTUAL HONESTY
Honesty is one of the foundations of knowledge. In the course of learning the contributions of others are evaluated and utilized as the basis for further research. Intellectual honesty demands that the contributions of others be recognized. Not recognizing these people is ignoring their contributions and is cheating. Also passing on the ideas of another person as your own deprives you of the opportunity to participate in your education. For these reasons, Lethbridge Community College insists on intellectual honesty in all academic activities.

Intellectual dishonesty may take many forms, such as: using materials (notes, textbooks, etc.) in examinations without the instructors permission, copying of published or unpublished works of others without recognizing their work or gaining their permission, falsifying results in reports or laboratory experiments, writing examinations or tests for someone else or having them write an exam for you, submitting someone else’s work as your own.

If the instructor believes the conduct of a student is not consistent with the requirements of student behaviour and intellectual honesty, disciplinary action will be applied. The instructor will notify the Program Leader or Centre Team Leader.

When the action places the student’s academic future in jeopardy, through suspension and expulsion from classes, the instructor and/or Program Leader or Centre Team Leader will outline the details of the case for review by the appropriate LCC administrator.

This outline will be submitted in writing by the appropriate LCC administrator (or their designate(s)) to: the student, the Vice-President, Student and Enrolment Services.
Student appeal of disciplinary action is available through the Student Appeal Committee or the Vice-President, Student and Enrolment Services. Decisions of the Student Appeal Committee are final.

ACADEMIC DISCIPLINARY PROCEDURE
When a student is suspended from a course for academic disciplinary reasons, a written explanation must be presented to the student by the instructor with additional copies going to the appropriate LCC administrator, the Centre Team Leader, the Vice-President, Curriculum and Instruction, and the Vice-President, Student and Enrolment Services within two (2) academic calendar days of the action.

It is the responsibility of the faculty member to inform the student in the explanation that information regarding the suspension procedure and the Student Appeal Procedure can be obtained from the Registrar’s Office.

The Vice-President, Curriculum and Instruction is responsible for convening and chairing a meeting of the appropriate college staff within two (2) business days to decide if the action taken against the student is justified.

A majority of the committee members must agree that the action is justified before the student’s suspension is considered final. The student must be notified in writing by the Vice-President, Curriculum and Instruction within two (2) subsequent business days of the decision of the committee. A copy of the letter to the student must be submitted to the Registrar and the instructor.

The student may meet with the appropriate LCC administrator prior to the committee meeting to present their perspective of the action taken. It is the responsibility of the student to initiate this meeting.

A student terminated from any class under this policy will receive a grade of “RW”. Once the suspension process is initiated the student may not voluntarily withdraw in order to obtain `W’ rather than a “RW” on their academic record.

STUDENT APPEAL PROCEDURE
Students who feel that they have been dealt with unfairly by an employee of Lethbridge Community College can appeal to the Student Appeal Committee. Guidelines and procedures for the appeal process may be obtained from the Vice-president, Student and Enrolment Services. A student has seven (7) calendar days to initiate the appeal. In the case of marks appeals, the grade must be appealed within 60 calendar days after the end of the term. Only a final grade may be appealed. Grades for specific components of the course cannot be appealed through this process.

DISCRIMINATION AND HARASSMENT
In order to provide a learning and working environment free of discrimination and harassment, it is the policy of Lethbridge Community College that discrimination/harassment of students and employees is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
