Minnesota West Policies

Chapter 3 - Educational

3.6 Code of Conduct

Minnesota West Community & Technical College has a responsibility to provide a safe learning environment for all students. The College, therefore, reserves the right to take necessary and appropriate action to support and protect the safety and well being of the College community: its students, faculty, staff, facilities, and its programs. Students are expected to abide by local, state, and federal laws, and the College's rules.

Should the violation of a civil or criminal law by a student involve College interests, the College has the right to proceed with disciplinary action without regard to civil or criminal proceedings. These regulations apply on campus and at all College sponsored activities, and at activities sponsored by College clubs or organizations, on or off-campus, except where specifically limited. Students shall be subject to College discipline for violation of any of the Student Code of Conduct, including hazing, that occurs on or off College-controlled premises at College approved or sponsored functions.

Any disciplinary action occurring with Minnesota West Community & Technical College will be administered in the context of a unified and coordinated set of campus regulations and processes to ensure fair, equitable, and legal outcomes.
