To maintain the general welfare of the college community, the College of Marin upholds the Standards of Conduct (Board Policy 5500) to which every student is expected to adhere. The College of Marin works to create a healthy and safe environment where students can study, work, and feel that they are a part of a thriving community that treats each other with respect, courtesy, and dignity.
Students are accountable and responsible for their own actions and students who violate the Standards of Conduct are subject to Student Discipline and Due Process (Administrative Process 5520). The College views the process as a learning opportunity that can result in growth through personal reflection and an understanding of one’s responsibilities and privileges within the college community.
