Classroom Decorum
  • An exploration of ethical issues should result in
    a variety of opinions and opposing points of
    view.
  • A large part of this course is aimed at growing
    critical thinking skills through the discussion
    and debate of issues.
  • Students are reminded that University policy
    says, "The classroom is a special environment in
    which students and faculty come together to
    promote learning and growth. It is essential to
    this learning environment that respect for the
    rights of others seeking to learn, respect for
    the professionalism of the instructor, and the
    general goals of academic freedom are maintained.
    ... Differences of viewpoint or concerns should
    be expressed in terms which are supportive of the
    learning process, creating an environment in
    which students and faculty may learn to reason
    with clarity and compassion, to share of
    themselves without losing their identities, and
    to develop and understanding of the community in
    which they live . . . Student conduct which
    disrupts the learning process shall not be
    tolerated and may lead to disciplinary action
    and/or removal from class."
