Standards of Conduct

Moreno Valley College works to ensure a safe, welcoming, and productive learning environment. As such, MVC has a student code of conduct as well as methods of reporting concerns or misconduct for both students and college employees. For more information regarding our efforts toward safety and accountability, please see the information below.

 

Student Conduct

MVC students are expected to adhere to reasonable standards of student conduct, as defined by the Riverside Community College District's Chancellor's Office and Board of Trustees. These standards promote a safe environment for students and College employees. Violations of these standards may result in disciplinary action.

 

Student Complaints

Student concerns are important to us. MVC strives to facilitate open communication and accountability and offers students a complaint form to share information regarding a concern or complaint they may have regarding an office on campus or an encounter with a college employee.

Complaint forms should be printed, filled out, and turned into the Dean of Student Services office located in the Student Services Building, Admissions & Records Office. The Dean of Student Services will contact you within a few business days of recieving the form.

If you are in need of immediate support and/or assistance, please contact the Behavior Intervetion and Resource Team (BIRT). BIRT offers crisis intervention services and support for individual students.

 

Student Misconduct

Faculty, classified staff, and managers can report violations of the Standards of Student Conduct when students are disruptive or violate the Student Code of Conduct. A report may not necessarily require disciplinary action, but any incident of a violation should be reported to determine whether a student's violations warrant action.


When a Student Misconduct Report is filed with the Dean of Students regarding a possible violation of the Standards of Conduct Policy, the student will receive written notification from the Student Services Office. A Student Misconduct Report should be submitted immediately after the occurrence, or within ten business days of the discovery of facts.

Once the Dean of Students receives the disruptive student form, the student will be called within a 24 hour period for a meeting with the Dean. During this conference, the Dean of Students shall determine if the student's behavior constitutes a violation of the Standards of Conduct.

If it is determined that a violation has occurred, the student may be required or recommended to, including but not limited to, seek various student services department assistance such as Student Health and Psychological Services or Disability Support Services, sign a Discipline Contract, and/or the student may be recommended for suspension or expulsion depending on the nature of the incident.

If you are unsure if the student is disruptive or would like to report a concerning behavior to the Behavior Intervention and Resource Team, please visit the BIRT website.

For questions, please contact the Dean of Student Services at (951) 571-6384.
