3450 Setting Classroom Behavioral Standards

Original Date: 4/20/1987 * Last Revision Effective: 4/7/2015
Policy Contact: Vice President, Student Affairs


A common, campus-wide minimum standard regarding classroom behavior, student cheating, stealing, and plagiarizing provides enough autonomy for instructors and programs to set their own standards.

It is the instructor’s responsibility to clearly articulate to the students what is considered appropriate and inappropriate behavior in the classroom and what action will be taken in the case of inappropriate classroom behavior. It is recommended that this be done through the course syllabus.
