Response to topics requested by Commission
In the July 2013 letter from NWCCU reaffirming EITC’s accreditation following the Three-
Year Report, the College was asked to address Recommendation One of the fall 2009
Focused Interim Peer-Evaluation Report. The recommendation stated:
The Student
Handbook provides a Code of Conduct concerning “activities not tolerated,” along with a list
of sanctions. The evaluation committee recommends that additional policies be provided
concerning disciplinary proceedings and appeals, which will provide for appropriate due
process for students (Standard 2.D.5.f).
As a result of this recommendation, a section was added to both the student handbook and
the catalog entitled “Student Appeal Procedures.” This section outlines three types of
grievances (academic, discrimination, and general) and provides a process students can
follow to ensure their grievances are addressed in a fair and non-biased manner (pg. 15 of
the 2015-16 Catalog and p. 46 of the Planner/Student Handbook).
