ORDINANCE ON CODE AND CONDUCT OF STUDENTS

1. Introduction
The mission of Cirrus Aviation Academy is teaching, research and service. Inherent in
this mission is the responsibility of the Academy to educate its students to be
responsible employee of an airline/ GHA. The Code and Conduct of Student outlines
student conduct and disciplinary policies that pertain to students at Cirrus Aviation
Academy. It is designed to provide information to students, faculty and staff regarding
the ideals that underlie our academic mission, and the epectations that the Academy
has regarding the conduct of students. The purpose of the policies outlined in the Code
and Conduct of Student is to protect the rights of all members of the Cirrus Aviation
Academy Community and to maintain an atmosphere in the community appropriate for
an institution of higher education.
2. Scope of Code and Conduct of Student Discipline
Cirrus Aviation Academy faculty, staff and students value the Academy!s relationship
"ith the surrounding community and reali#e that it has tremendous social, cultural and
economic impact on the community. $olicy setting and enforcement %discipline& are
"ays of educating students to become conscientious members of that community, and
students are epected to conduct themselves in a responsible manner at all times,
"hether on or off campus.
The student discipline system eists to handle infractions against Academy rules and
regulations. This system is based on a philosophy of fairness for all parties affected by
any situation involving a student!s noncompliance "ith Cirrus Aviation Academy
policy or regulation.
The student discipline system is designed for an educational system and does not
function as a court of la". Therefore, procedural issues, including the introduction and
consideration of evidence, are handled in a manner consistent "ith that educational
focus. 'here the allegations are more serious, and therefore the conse(uences more
serious, the rules are structured appropriately. The student discipline system is not a
substitute for the criminal and civil courts but, an additional option for complainants
"hen the alleged violator is an enrolled Cirrus Aviation Academy student.
If a student or a group of students are cited by staff, faculty, or other students for a
possible violation of civil la"s and/or Academy policies on campus, they may be
sub)ect to either the disciplinary process of the Academy and/or appropriate legal
processes may be ta*en.
If a student or a group of students is reported by community members for possible
violations of the la" off campus, the Academy "ill cooperate "ith appropriate
officials ta*ing necessary legal action. +urther, if a student or a group of students is
Page 1 of 8
reported to the Academy authorities for violations off campus, the Academy may
intervene on a formal or an informal basis. The ,informal, intervention "ill involve in
the individual student or the group of students being referred to the parent for
discussions on the incident. -ff campus behaviour "hich can have a significant impact
on the mission of the Academy may invite formal Academy disciplinary actions.
