North Country Community College is above all an institution of learning and teaching. As an institution of higher education we are committed to the following principles:
- We affirm the right of freedom of expression within our community and our commitment to the highest standards of civility and decency toward all. We recognize the right of every individual to think and speak as dictated by personal belief, to express ideas, and to disagree with or counter another’s point of view, limited only by College regulations governing time, place, and manner. We promote open expression of our individuality and our diversity within the bounds of courtesy, sensitivity, and respect.
- We embrace and encourage the celebration of differences and affirm the rights of individuals guaranteed by state and federal laws and the U.S. Constitution. We reject all manifestations of discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, creed, age, disability, self-identified sex, gender identity or expression, status of being transgender, sexual orientation, familial status, pregnancy, predisposing genetic characteristics, carrier status, military or U.S. veteran status, domestic violence victim status, prior criminal conviction, socioeconomic status, or any other differences among people which have been excuses for misunderstandings, divisiveness, or hatred. When such rights are infringed upon by violence, threats, or unlawful harassment, the College will follow due process and use every necessary resource to decisively identify perpetrators for administrative action, civil action, and/or criminal prosecution.
The opportunity to participate in this academic community requires adherence to a set of individual responsibilities, and ignorance of College regulations will not be accepted as a justification for conduct violations. By voluntarily choosing to affiliate with the College, students indicate knowledge and acceptance of the responsibilities outlined in the Student Code of Conduct.
