CODE OF STUDENT CONDUCT
A. PREAMBLE
PECIT is a community of students, faculty, staff and administrators. As community, it
recognizes the need to establish a code of conduct that contains rules and regulations that
promote growth and development, guide student actions, and define sanctions that will be
imposed when rules and regulations are violated. For the benefit of the community at large, these
regulations limit certain behaviors and activities. They also protect the academic integrity, health,
welfare, safety, rights and property of the institution. Any student whose conduct violates this
will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including suspension or expulsion.
Ultimate authority for student discipline is vested in the Board of Trustees of PECIT.
Disciplinary authority is delegated to the Head of Student Affairs in consultation with the School
Administrators as Head of Academic Affairs as set forth in policies, rules, or regulations adopted
by the board.
B. RATIONALE

personal, educational and social development of those students who are held accountable for

prohibited behavior.

A grievance maybe informal or formal. A grievance made orally is considered informal. Only

informal grievance should be settled formally following a set of manner a person conducts
himself or herself. A grievance may be academic or behavioral, an academic grievance is one that
arises from any controversy related to learning or to performance in academic course while a
behavioral grievance is one that arises from the manner a person conducts himself or herself.
THE Ad-Hoc GRIEVANCE BOARD

A grievance may be academic or behavioral, an academic grievance is one that arises from any controversy related to learning or to performance in academic course while a behavioral grievance is one that arises from the manner a person conducts himself or herself. THE Ad-Hoc GRIEVANCE BOARD Principal Function The Ad-Hoc Grievance Board is a quasi-judicial body that hears and decides all grievance cases filed by students, group or class against any member of the faculty brought to the college level in accordance with the defined procedures.
