Part of being a member of community is to demonstrate through day to day actions that one is able to assure one’s own welfare and meet normal obligations. This essentially means that students must agree to care for themselves and behave in ways that will not cause problems for themselves or those around them nor negatively impact the welfare, safety and success of other community members. Examples would include, but are not limited to, caring adequately for one’s physical and emotional health, dealing appropriately with life challenges, getting along with others successfully, making adequate academic progress and not causing or threatening to cause harm to one’s self. It is also expected that students will seek out and/or accept professional assistance for those situations which they are unable to resolve on their own. If these self care expectations are not met, students will be held accountable for their behaviour and the negative impact on the community. Accountability may include the requirement to move out of campus housing and/or withdrawal or suspension from the university.
Students needing accommodation due to a documented disability or significant, ongoing medical condition are required to contact the Director, Equity of Access and Learning Resources to discuss accessibility issues.
