(a) The administrator or delegate in charge of any college office, department or facility is responsible for student conduct that takes place in that area, but outside a classroom setting. The administrator or delegate may remove a student from the area within their control if they reasonably believe that the student conduct substantially and materially disrupts college operations and such removal is necessary to protect the learning environment and/or to ensure the safety and well-being of members of the college community and/or to protect property or facilities belonging to the college or members of the college community. Staff directing the removal of a student must report the student's conduct to their administrator in charge at the earliest opportunity. The administrator in charge must report the incident in writing to the student conduct officer at the earliest opportunity.
(b) The instructor or advisor is responsible for student conduct in the classroom or at any college-related activity or event. The instructor or advisor is authorized to remove the student from a single class or college-sponsored event in which the student's conduct materially and substantially disrupts the educational environment. When such behavior results in removal, the instructor or advisor must report the student's conduct in writing to the student conduct officer at the earliest opportunity.
(c) In all cases involving disruption, the student conduct officer or designee will proceed with the investigation and/or disciplinary proceedings at the earliest opportunity consistent with the procedural requirements established in this chapter.
