The Development of Student Disciplinary Policies and Procedures at a Large, Multi-Campus Community College.
Mackin, Sara Lee
To rectify the inadequacies and inconsistencies in student disciplinary policy between the four campuses of the Miami-Dade Community College system, a comprehensive, current policy of students' rights and responsibilities as well as revised disciplinary procedures and a new Student Code of Conduct were devised in 1976. In developing the revisions, an evaluation of existing college documents and public laws pertaining to student discipline was conducted; college needs in this area were assessed; and recommendations of an outside consultant and a literature review were considered. New documents were drafted, and copies were submitted to students, faculty, and administrators for review and comment. New policy and procedures were then evaluated by the college attorney, and were subsequently approved by the college president, executive vice president, and District Board of Trustees. The comprehensive policy of rights and responsibilities included provisions for protection in academic pursuits, privacy of records, conditions for responsible on-campus behavior, appeal and grievance mechanisms, and student discipline. Disciplinary procedures provided guidelines for dealing with alleged Code of Conduct violations, and the Code established regulations for student behavior. The official statements of policies and procedures which were developed are appended. (Author/TR)
