Student Affairs Vision and Mission Statements

Vision

We will be distinguished as a Student Affairs Division that provides developmentally appropriate opportunities that challenge and support our campus community to be Resourceful, Responsible, and Reflective, and to fulfill the College mission to lead productive and fulfilling lives.

Mission

The Student Affairs Division at The College of Idaho contributes to student learning and personal development through educationally purposeful programs, activities, and interactions; by fostering a civically minded, safe, and inviting community; and by using professional, informed, and innovative methods that are continuously assessed and evaluated.

Student Affairs Offices

The Student Affairs Offices, located primarily in the McCain Student Center and Hendren Hall, provide a variety of services and resources for students. Among those offered are career counseling, internship and off-campus experience placement, student health, student activities, personal counseling, study skills assistance, campus ministry, minority and international student affairs, residence life, and campus safety. Student Affairs staff members invite and encourage students to drop by and share questions, concerns, and ideas about campus life or how to get involved on campus.

Student Rights and Responsibilities

Student Responsibilities

Students are held responsible for reading and understanding the academic, administrative, and disciplinary policies or regulations and for understanding the graduation requirements as published in the catalog when they matriculate. They are held responsible for the requirements of a major in effect at the time they officially declare a major.

Graduation Requirements

Requirements for graduation or for various majors and minors may change after students matriculate at The College of Idaho. Changes are not retroactive, although students will have the option to elect to meet the new requirements. Exceptions may be necessary when changes in professional certification or licensure standards mandate such changes in requirements.

Confidentiality of Records

In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, P.L. 93-380, as amended by P.L. 92-318, eligible students may review personal educational records, have the opportunity to correct information in those records, and limit disclosure of information from those records. For procedures, contact the Registrar's Office.

Dismissal and Suspension

The College of Idaho reserves the right, and by matriculation the student acknowledges that right, to dismiss or suspend any student whose conduct is unacceptable by college standards.

Notice of Non-Discriminatory Policy

The College of Idaho admits students of any race, age, sex, color, national and ethnic origin, and religion to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the College. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, age, sex, color, national and ethnic origin, or religion in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarships, loan programs, athletic, or any school-administered programs.

Student Honor Code

A. The Code:

The College of Idaho is a community of integrity; therefore, we, the students, seek to promulgate a community in which integrity is valued, expected, and practiced. We are honor bound to refrain from cheating, stealing, or lying about College-related business. We are obligated to examine our own actions in light of their effect on the community, and we are responsible to address any violations of these community standards.

B. The Pledge:

All course work submitted for evaluation is pledged with the student's signature:

I pledge that this work was completed with academic integrity.

C. Revision:

Any changes to the Academic Honor Code must be approved by a student referendum.
