Each individual shall maintain standards of conduct appropriate to membership in the college community. The Student Honor Code and Student Conduct polices will be obeyed by every student.
This will be put on the CVCC website under Student Conduct
  1. The Student Success Committee recommended that a new page on the website be developed and called the Student Handbook page. This will include TITLE IX, Student Accessibility Services, and the other polices in the Student Handbook. 
    1. It was suggested the committee come up with a statement faculty can put on their syllabi to direct students to the Student Handbook webpage. This project will take approximately one year and will is the goal for the next academic year.
    2. Once the webpage and statement are developed, it will be recommended this be in Canvas for every course.
    3. It will be brought to the Faculty Association once completed
Goal for next academic year:  Update the Student Handbook page on the website to align with the PDF Student Handbook. The owners of each page referenced on this webpage will be asked to update their webpage before the links will be made active.
