Student Non-Academic Code of Conduct – Behavior Policy

The purpose of this policy is to define the standards of non-academic student behavior, the processes for determining and addressing non-compliance, and the consequences for non-compliance with those standards.

This policy applies to all students and addresses student non-academic behavior.

Policy Statements
1. Crowsnest Pass Adult Education strives to provide every student with a safe and healthy learning environment free from discrimination, harassment and violence. Therefore, students are required to behave in a way that does not adversely affect the learning or work environment of other students, instructors, staff or volunteers.

2. Instructors and/or staff have the right to ask participants to leave and if required, police will be called.

3. Students who engage in non-academic misconduct, a failure to abide by the standards of non-academic student behavior, are subject to disciplinary action commensurate with the seriousness of the misconduct taking into account all relevant considerations.

4. Incidences of alleged non-academic misconduct will be addressed in a fair, just, timely and equitable manner.

5. Upon communication of a finding of non-academic misconduct and the imposition of disciplinary action, the student may appeal the decision.

Appeal process – is the process whereby a student has the opportunity to challenge a decision regarding alleged non-academic misconduct.

Discipline – means the consequences of non-academic misconduct imposed upon a student.

Discrimination and harassment – includes any unwelcome behavior or communication directed towards a person or members of an identifiable group based on a prohibited ground of discrimination. Prohibited grounds include the following: race, religious beliefs, colour, gender, physical disability, mental disability, marital status, age, ancestry, place of origin, family status, source of income and sexual orientation (as defined by the Alberta Human Rights Commission). Excluding a person from a right or privilege to which they would otherwise be entitled, because of a prohibited ground, would constitute prohibited conduct.

General harassment – includes any unwelcome verbal or physical behavior that unreasonably interferes with work/learning or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work/learning environment. General harassment can include, but is not limited to, remarks, jokes, or actions which demean or humiliate another person and which deny individuals their dignity and respect. General harassment can also include bullying. Bullying usually involves repeated incidents or a pattern of behavior that is intended to intimidate, offend, degrade or humiliate a particular person or group of people.

Learning environment – is any space, on- or off-campus, in or out of the classroom (physical or virtual), with Crowsnest Pass Adult Education sponsored/supported educational and related activities, including any physical or virtual premises necessary to support the activities.

Non-academic misconduct – are behaviors, actions, events, or conduct that are in conflict with the Community Adult Learning Program’s behavior policy, applicable municipal, provincial, or federal laws, and/or that negatively affect a safe and healthy learning environment.

Student – is a person who accesses the Crowsnest Pass Adult Education learner services and is enrolled in Crowsnest Pass Adult Education courses and/or programs.

Violence – means any incidents where the attempted or actual conduct of a person causes members of the Crowsnest Pass Adult Education community to be physically or mentally harmed, abused, threatened, intimidate or assaulted. Violence may take many forms, and it may be expressed verbally, through written or electronic communications such as email, internet, telephone, standard social media channels, through actual or threatening physical contact or gestures.

Work environment – means any space on- or off-campus (physical or virtual), which is employed or utilized in the course of employment of a Crowsnest Pass Adult Education employee.
