Inherent Authority

The college reserves the right to take necessary and appropriate action to protect the safety and well-being of the campus community.  Such action may include taking disciplinary action against those students whose behavior off college premises indicates that they pose a substantial danger to others.


The college will not routinely invoke the disciplinary process for student misbehavior occurring off college premises.  Nonetheless, it will be necessary to endeavor to protect the campus community when there are reasonable grounds to believe that a student may pose a substantial danger to others.  Normally, such "substantial danger" will be manifested by a pending criminal charge, usually relating to a crime of violence, harassment, stalking, burglary, substantial theft or fraud, the distribution of illegal drugs, or the possession of substantial quantities of illegal drugs.
