The Board of trustees has given authority to the administration of the University to formulate policies and methods to insure the welfare of all students, faculty and staff. Variations in behavior may be expected in a large group; however, every student is responsible for understanding and acting in accordance with established regulations.
Any conduct or behavior which is in violation of the University catalog, Student Handbook, city, county, state, or federal ordinances, statutes or laws, or any act which, in the sole judgment of the administration, is considered detrimental to the safety and welfare of the campus community or which tends to bring disgrace or discredit upon Bethune-Cookman University, may be considered to be “misconduct”.
The Office of Judicial Affairs oversees and administers the judicial process based on University policies and procedures.
Misconduct on or off campus has negative consequences. Criminal violations (the violation of any local, state, or federal law), will not be tolerated and the University cooperates with law enforcement. Any arrest for a felony will result in immediate suspension. Bethune-Cookman University has a “Zero Tolerance” policy regarding, “The possession or use of weapons, the possession or improper use of controlled substances, or drug paraphernalia. Persons involved in either of these activities will be immediately suspended or expelled from the school. This policy will be strictly enforced.”
