Jefferson College strives to promote a safe college environment for all students, faculty, staff, and community members. To assist in this endeavor, a Behavioral Concerns Team (BCT) has been established to coordinate campus response for students displaying concerning behavior.

All members of the campus community are encouraged to report behaviors that are concerning, such as exhibiting inappropriate levels of aggression or harassing behaviors, acting out of normal character, displaying frequent tearful behavior, or indicating suicidal or homicidal thoughts.

The BCT assesses all reports and implements appropriate intervention, as needed. For further information regarding the Behavioral Concerns Team, please contact Kristine Bogue at 636-481-3262 or 797-3000, ext 3262.

The College recognizes that students are both citizens and members of the academic community.

  • As citizens, students enjoy the same freedoms and rights that all citizens enjoy – freedom of speech and assembly, freedom of association, freedom of the press, right of petition, and right of due process.
  • As members of the academic community, students are expected to conduct their affairs in accordance with the standards set forth in the Student Conduct Code.

Because the College must maintain its credibility as an institution of higher education, it has established and maintains standards of academic honesty against which students are regularly evaluated in the performance of their course work.

Upon enrolling in the College, each student assumes an obligation to conduct himself/herself in a manner compatible with the College’s function as an educational institution and to comply with the laws enacted by Federal, State, and local governments. If this obligation is neglected or ignored by the student, the College must, in the interest of fulfilling its function, institute appropriate disciplinary action.

The Student Conduct Code can be viewed in its entirety in the Student Handbook
