Northwest College

Policies and Procedures

Standards of Student Conduct

Family Members on Campus

It is the policy of Northwest College to discourage the extended presence of children or other family members in the learning and working environment of the campus. Any exceptions to the policy must be requested and approved in advance by the appropriate supervisory personnel. Faculty members will determine reasonableness in allowing children or other guests to accompany students to class or classroom activities.

This policy does not preclude family members from visiting college employees or students for short periods of time, but rather is intended to avoid situations in which the extended presence of a family member may hinder the orderly functioning of the college, its employees, and its students.

It is the expectation of Northwest College that family members or children will conduct themselves in a non-disruptive manner while present in the working and/or learning environment. Employees and students will assume responsibility for the actions of their children or family members when those individuals visit the college. On such visits, the employee or student shall monitor the activities of his or her family members to ensure:

  • college property is not damaged or misused.
  • college employees are not hampered in the performance of their duties or responsibilities.
  • classes, college events or public meetings are not disrupted.
  • the safety of employees, children, and members of the public while on college property.
