Policies Related to Instruction
College policies help bring consistency and guidance to instructors and, in turn, to our students. The goal of having policies is to bring clarity and sometimes resolution to situations that arise. Here are some of the more commonly referred to instructional policies.
Document student and staff injuries, suspicious students, and student conduct violations. It’s now federal law that sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking be reported (victim can remain anonymous). Incident Report Form
In the classroom and in all aspects of college life, our goal is to provide the best opportunity for student success for all. The College will take action to prevent and stop any negative behavior that inhibits learning. Learn more in Western’s Student Handbook (PDF).
Students have certain rights under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) concerning their school records. Visit Western’s FERPA Training.
Open Hour Schedule
The college tries to keep two hours free of classes so faculty, staff and students can have regular open hours.
