All NDSCS stakeholders have a responsibility to respect the NDSCS community. It is vital for all individuals to conduct themselves in a manner that does not negatively affect the educational mission of the College or the welfare of themselves or others. This includes promoting an environment conducive to learning and fostering a sense of shared and mutual community responsibility. Community responsibility also involves awareness of how personal decisions affect others.
A community respecting the protection of rights of others is necessary to provide a positive and enriching educational environment. Conduct that inhibits the educational process is of concern, whether it occurs on or off College premises.
All NDSCS students have identified rights within the Code and as afforded by due process. The College will work with students in an educational and fair manner to assist them in reflecting upon and growing from their personal experiences.
