Institutional Policy Statement

    College students are citizens of the state, local and national governments and the academic community, and are, therefore, expected to conduct themselves as law abiding members of each community at all times. Admission to an institution of higher education carries with it special privileges and imposes special responsibilities apart from those rights and duties enjoyed by non-students. In recognition of the special relationship that exists between the college and the academic community which it seeks to serve, the Tennessee Board of Regents has authorized the President of the college to take such action as may be necessary to maintain campus conditions and preserve the integrity of the college and its educational environment.

    Pursuant to this authorization, Northeast State has developed the following regulations which are intended to govern student conduct on the campus. In addition, students are subject to all national, state and local laws and ordinances. If a student's violation of such laws or ordinances also adversely affects the college's pursuit of its educational objectives, the college may enforce its own regulations regardless of any proceedings instituted by other authorities.
