Code of Conduct
Lewis-Clark State College derives from the State of Idaho its legal
authority to provide programs and services to its students. The authority is vested in the
State Board of Education and in the College's President.
Upon enrollment a student is entitled to receive the services and participate in the
activities of the College. As a member of the college community, each student is expected
to participate freely in and to support academic processes. To maintain the quality of its
programs and to protect the integrity of academic freedom for its community as a whole,
the College must have the power to educate and correct those who do not follow its rules
and regulations or who disrupt its programs.
Lewis-Clark state College aspires to maintain academic freedom and to maximize individual
responsibility. The College affirms that the process of finding, preserving, and
disseminating knowledge in a program of higher education can fully prosper only when there
is open and continual dialogue among students, faculty and administration.
The following Student Code of Conduct for the student community attempts to establish
these ideals in practice. It should be noted that the student judicial proceedings of the
College are not analogous to criminal proceedings in federal, state or local courts and
will not be conducted with the same formalities and procedures afforded in criminal
proceedings. The Code was jointly written by students, faculty and staff, given final form
by the Faculty Senate Student Affairs Committee, and approved by the President's Cabinet.
