Student Handbook

Community Disturbance Policy

Alma College reserves the right to contact parents or guardians in situations where the student’s behavior indicates he or she is not in control of his/her behavior or emotions. A student who actively or passively places themselves or others at physical/or mental risk may be removed from campus housing or suspended from the college by the Student Life Office until arrangements can be made for a student conduct review and/or safe return to campus. If a student is removed from campus housing or suspended from school, the Student Life Office will make a reasonable attempt to notify the student’s parents, spouse/partner, or other responsible associated persons to advise them of this action. Alma College cannot take responsibility for the well-being of a suspended student.

Disorderly Conduct

No students shall make any disturbance* disrupting, interfering, or hindering another’s education or well-being on or off campus in any form.

*A disturbance, which is something less than threats of violence, is an interruption of peace and quiet. This is not limited to excessive noise, physical/or mental health, a violation of public order or decorum, or an interference with/hindrance of an individual in pursuit of his/her education or occupation.
