Student Expectations and Protocol
The Center for Diversity & Inclusion (CDI) wants to ensure that everyone has a wonderful experience in the Scholastic Enhancement Experience (SEE) Program. Please remember that Truman State University sponsors this program, and therefore, all participants are subject to the University Student Code of Conduct. In addition, because our scholars are not yet full-time students, there are additional rules and guidelines that we ask you to adhere to. These are outlined below:
Attendance and Academic Performance
Scholars are expected and required to attend all class sessions. Missing class without express permission from staff or faculty personnel are immediate grounds for expulsion from the SEE program. SEE scholars are conditionally admitted to the University, pending successful completion of the SEE program, and must meet the academic requirements set by professors and CDI staff. The final grade received in the INDV 1-credit pass/fail course will become part of all scholars’ permanent academic records. Even though the workshops and meetings will not be taken for academic credit, all scholars are expected to successfully complete all necessary assignments. A Scholar may be dismissed from the program for conduct which is deemed disorderly, disruptive or indecent.
Dangerous Disruptive or Illegal Instruments
At no time may scholars possess instruments which can be considered dangerous, illegal or in any way a violation of University policy. Such items include switchblades, knives, BB/Pellet guns, paintball guns, martial arts devices etc. Scholars may not possess an item or instrument, which may be mistaken for a dangerous or illegal instrument, nor may scholars possess items, which prove to be disruptive to the educational process. The unlawful possession, use or distribution of illicit drugs, drug paraphernalia and/or alcohol by scholars on University property or as part of University activities at any time during the program constitute grounds for immediate dismissal from the program.
Accountability and Integrity
Due to the fact that students are entering a University setting which strives to maintain the highest academic and ethical standards any academic dishonesty will lead to students’ failure of their courses. In addition scholars may not participate in nonscheduled or unauthorized activities during the program. This includes leaving campus without express permission from SEE staff members. Unless permission is granted, students may not drive or ride in personal vehicles during the Summer Academic Institute.
SEE scholars are not permitted to have visitors on or off campus at anytime during the summer component, unless previously authorized by the Program Coordinator or Director.
All rules are subject and secondary to the scholar conduct University Student Code of Conduct, which can be found online here.
Failure to comply by the rules and regulations of Truman State University and the Center for Diversity & Inclusion will result in immediate expulsion from the Scholastic Enhancement Experience Program.
