Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC) is dedicated to providing a high quality of education, and high standard of service delivery for students and clients, consistent with the Institute’s mission, vision and commitments. An appropriate code of conduct is necessary to ensure that JIBC create and maintain an environment that is conducive to effective teaching and learning as well as being safe for students, faculty, staff and clients.
Students are expected to make themselves aware of JIBC policies and procedures including standards of student conduct. Lack of awareness of the policy does not excuse a student from responsibility for their actions. JIBC has the responsibility to ensure the policy is easily accessed by all students.
Whenever possible, instructors and administrators are encouraged to deal with acts of misconduct in an informal manner; this policy is intended to address major concerns about student misconduct.
Failure by students to maintain appropriate standards of conduct may result in the initiation of disciplinary action by JIBC, up to and including withdrawal from the program and/or suspension from the institution. The range of student discipline measures are outlined in more detail in the related procedures.
Disciplinary measures imposed under this policy may be appealed according to the process described in the related procedures and consistent with the principles of due process and natural justice.
Honesty, mutual respect and good citizenship is promoted and expected at Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC; the “Institute”). Students will conduct themselves in a manner that is respectful of the rights, well-being and property of others and that facilitates an effective learning environment. JIBC will investigate all allegations of misconduct and will apply disciplinary measures as appropriate, up to and including suspension from the program and/or institution.
This policy applies to student conduct at all JIBC campuses and learning sites and also applies to student conduct off-campus and online where the student is engaged in any activities that are part of JIBC course/program requirements. It also applies to any situations where a student is representing JIBC in any manner.
This policy and related procedures may not apply to conduct more appropriately dealt with elsewhere or addressed by an alternate policy or interest.
