Student problems:  WHAT TO DO?

A quick reference guide for faculty

Problems with Students in Class  

If students are disruptive to the learning environment or exhibit other problem behavior you have several options:

  • Put language in your syllabus that states behavioral expectations for the class.

  • Consult and problem solve with your manager, your division counselor, your colleagues, the Executive Dean for Student Affairs, or a Judicial Advisor.

  • Dismiss the student for that class period. You must document this by writing or emailing the Executive Dean for Student Affairs and copying your division dean.

  • Cite the student under the Student Code of Conduct. You do this by writing or emailing the Executive Dean for Student Affairs. Include brief details of the problem.

  • Always Contact Public Safety if you feel the safety of yourself and/or others is threatened.

Outside of Class but at Lane or During College Activities

All student actions on Lane property or during off campus learning activities sponsored by the college are governed by the Student Code of Conduct. If students are disruptive or exhibit problem behavior your options are the same as in-class options:  

  • Consult & problem solve with your manager, your division counselor, colleagues, the Executive Dean for Student Affairs or a judicial advisor.

  • Cite the student under the Student Code of Conduct. You do this by writing or emailing the Executive Dean for Student Affairs.

  • Contact Public Safety if you feel the safety of yourself and/or others is threatened.

Cheating or Plagiarism

When a student cheats in your class or plagiarizes material you have the option of citing the student under the Student Code of Conduct in addition to whatever academic penalty you assess. You cite the student by writing or emailing the Executive Dean for Student Affairs who will assign a Judicial Advisor to hear the case.
