The Center for Continuing Studies (CCS) Code of Conduct
All students enrolled in a Continuing Studies class are expected to know and honor the Mercer County Community College Code of Conduct as outlined in Section VII Student Code of Conduct (pages 70-78) in the Student Rights and Responsibilities publication posted online here
Student Code of Conduct Purpose
To maintain a campus environment that is conductive to learning, protects the College’s educational purposes, maintains reasonable order on campus, and protects the rights of all members of the college community.
Students enrolling in the College assume an obligation to conduct themselves in a manner compatible with the College’s function as an educational institution and suitable to members of the academic community. This obligation extends to conduct on either college campus or at any other location as part of any college sponsored activity.
An individual, a group of individuals, or a student organization may be charged with any violations of this Code. In cases where a violation is committed by an individual member of a student group or organization, the entire group or organization may be held responsible. In addition to the individual member, when those members not directly involved participated in the activity by encouraging, witnessing, or condoning the act in any manner, they too may be held responsible and charged with a breach of the Student Code of Conduct.
Commission of Prohibited Conduct
If an individual violates the Student Code, he/she/they may be subject to disciplinary proceedings as detailed in the procedures and guidelines established by the Executive Dean for Student Affairs. Disciplinary proceedings are instituted only for violations of standards of conduct published in advance. Whether committing acts prohibited by the Code of Conduct or encouraging or condoning others to break the code of conduct, students will be punished to the same degree. Culpability is not diminished for violations of this Code that are committed in ignorance of the Code or under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs, or improper use of controlled substances. Violations of local ordinances, federal or state laws where said violation poses a substantial threat to the safety and or welfare of campus community members may subject the student to disciplinary proceedings. Students are responsible for compliance with all college policies and procedures.
