RELATED TO POLICY SERIES NO: 7030
TITLE: EXPECTATIONS OF STUDENTS ON FIELD TRIPS AND OTHER OFFICIAL OFF-CAMPUS ACTIVITIES
The purpose of this rule is to clarify that students are expected to model college values when participating in activities in the community by maintaining behaviors conducive to safety and learning.
Students at LBCC have opportunities to be involved in learning experiences in the community, other states, and even to travel to other countries.
When participating in an LBCC sanctioned course or activity at an off-campus location, students represent LBCC in the communities and countries they are visiting. Advisors are to consult with the Risk Manager about potential conflicts between cultural norms and existing college policies. Following college policies and procedures facilitates a safe experience for all participants, and reflects positively on the quality of education offered by LBCC.
The college faculty and/or staff leading the off-campus activity are expected to know, implement, and follow college policies and procedures. Public Safety and Student Development offer materials, forms, and training to help ensure a safe and productive off-campus activity. Any employee leading an off-campus experience should work with Public Safety to complete a pre-trip checklist to ensure effective risk management practices are established and understood.
LBCC policies and procedures are in effect for the duration of the off-campus activity.
Faculty and/or staff leading the off-campus activity are expected to have a plan for notifying college officials in the case of an emergency. Any personal injury or violation of college policy or procedure during the activity must be reported to the Dean of Students and/or Public Safety immediately upon return.
