At CNM there is a clearly defined process that is in place regarding how student disciplinary issues are addressed. The document that captures this process in writing is called the Student Code of Conduct. This Code of Conduct discusses the behavioral expectations for students, the behaviors that would be considered to be outside of what is acceptable, and how breaches of behavior that may constitute a violation of the Code of Conduct are dealt with.
As a CNM student, you are accountable for your behavior. If there is a question about whether your behavior is acceptable, it will be addressed by the Dean of Students or by the Director of Student Life and Discipline.
If you are summoned by the Dean of Students or Director of Student Discipline in regard to a discipline-related matter, you are expected to respond appropriately to that summons. Failure to do so will result in a Code of Conduct violation charge.
The disciplinary process exists to both protect your rights and to address your behavior if you are violating the rights of others. Should you find yourself in a situation where you believe a fellow student has acted toward you in a manner that you believe may constitute a Code of Conduct violation, you should report this behavior to the Office of the Dean of Students.
