PARTICIPATION - All students are expected to fully participate in all class activities, including lectures and discussions, demonstrations, presentations, small-group projects, and collaborative learning activities.
PROFESSIONALISM - At all times, students are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner. Professionalism includes establishing positive relationships and interactions with peers, colleagues, and faculty; attending respectfully to others who are sharing information with the class; being flexible to unforeseen changes in schedules and assignments; and, being prepared for all class meetings. Part of being a professional is learning to follow the "chain of command". In the event that there is a dispute between the instructor and the student and the student is not satisfied with the resolution, the student is to appeal to the Program Chair. From there the next link in the chain is the Dean and so forth as stipulated in the student handbook.
