|Title: ||Student Conduct Code Policy
Date Approved by the Board of Trustees: 7/11/91
Updated & Approved: 9/12/96, 04/07/2011
The Board of Trustees of Lakeland Community College requires that the conduct of students be of an honest, responsible and appropriate nature so as to permit the college to properly pursue its educational objectives and programs. Academic integrity is the foundation of our institution as honesty, the basic component of trust, is essential to both individual and institutional integrity. Lakeland Community College has set forth certain behaviors as violating academic honesty and appropriate standards of student conduct and, thus, potentially diminishing Lakeland's integrity, reputation for academic quality, and ability to function as an academic community.
This policy applies to both on-campus and off-campus college-related activities.
- The President of the college shall develop and implement a student conduct code which sets forth standards of conduct for students, consistent with Board policy, and proper procedures for enforcement thereof. This conduct code shall also apply to student conduct involving violations of federal, state or local laws.
- The President may delegate to appropriate college officials the responsibility to implement the student conduct code. Disciplinary action may be taken against a person who has been admitted as a student to the college, whether or not the individual is registered for classes. Disciplinary action may also be taken against student organizations.
- The President shall provide for the enforcement of the student conduct code through the use of college officials and college law enforcement officers.
