Disruptive Academic Behavior
For faculty who are dealing with a student exhibiting disruptive classroom behavior, the following information and resources in addition to ECU Cares may prove immensely helpful in addressing the behavior:
The Disruptive Academic Behavior Policy, found in the ECU Faculty Manual: Part V – Academic Information, Item Y: http://www.ecu.edu/cs-acad/fsonline/customcf/facultymanual/part5/51.htm.
The Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities provides a complaint form whereby faculty or staff can register a complaint through the judicial process when a student is believed to have violated the Code of Conduct. More information about the Code of Conduct, the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities, or registering a judicial complaint can be found at www.ecu.edu/osrr or by calling (252) 328-6824.
Invaluable suggestions for faculty can be found in the guide titled “Dealing with Disruptive Behavior in Instructional Settings” by Dr. Mike Brown, the former Associate Dean of the Harriot College of Arts and Sciences and Dr. Maggie Olszewska, the former Director of the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities.
