Guideline 6-4: Classroom Conduct and Discipline

Each faculty member must be aware of and read the complete text of the Student Code of Conduct as found in the Catalog and Student Handbook. Each faculty member is his or her own disciplinarian in class and is authorized to correct inappropriate conduct anywhere on college property at any time. The instructor is responsible for classroom management. There should be room for a clear expression of the ideas of students within the college classroom; however, this expression of ideas does not extend to disruptive behavior that denies other enrolled students the opportunity to receive the maximum benefit from the course. If such disruptive behavior occurs, confrontation with the student in front of the class should be avoided, if possible.

If incidents related to behavioral misconduct, discrimination, grievances, sexual harassment, and general complaints occur, faculty should refer to the District Discipline Information for Faculty.
