Community Living Understanding and Expectations
Every student is a member of the living and learning community of SUNY Broome. As a member of this community, each individual has certain rights as a student. Each individual must recognize that other members of this community are affected by their actions and great care should be given in creating an open and accepting environment. For this reason, it will be important that each individual learn to compromise with others in order to maintain an environment in which all members of the community may grow as individuals and may pursue learning as a fundamental part of the campus experience. Students should conduct themselves in a respectful and dignified manner. As a member of this community, students agree to abide by local, state and federal laws, as well as by the SUNY Broome Codes of Conduct at all times.
When students apply to SUNY Broome Community College, they accept our community living expectations which include a requirement to adhere to our Rules of Student Conduct. Because SUNY Broome strives to ensure the success of all its community members, its standards of conduct may exceed federal, state, or local requirements.
All students at SUNY Broome Community College have access to the Student Code of Conduct. This document is in the annual Student Planner and on this webpage. This webpage has the most current version of the Rules of Student Conduct.
Students with documented disabilities may request an accommodation, if needed, to assist them with the process; for example, requesting an interpreter, notices in braille, etc. The Dean of Students Office, in consultation with the Accessibility Resources Office will take all appropriate measures to ensure equal access to this information. Please contact the Accessibility Resources Office at (607) 778-5150 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to provide documentation of disabilities.
Student Conduct Philosophy
The student conduct process is designed to enforce college policy and residence hall regulations while reinforcing the College’s educational mission. Community living requires standards of conduct, cooperation, negotiation, and respect for all community members, including students and staff. The student conduct process functions cooperatively with Academic Affairs, Athletics, the Office of Housing, Counseling Services, the SUNY Broome Department of Public Safety, and local police and emergency response agencies. A student may be referred to a Student Conduct Administrator for an alleged policy violation.
How to Report a Violation of the Rules of Student Conduct
SUNY Broome has a dedicated group of staff and faculty that work together to address concerns about students’ behavior. This team reviews the information about the student and takes appropriate action to best ensure the student’s well-being, the community’s safety, and the student’s success here at SUNY Broome.
