The effectiveness of the educational process depends upon the provision of appropriate conditions and opportunities for learning in an environment that is supportive of diversity among ideas, cultures, and student characteristics. A responsibility to secure, respect, and protect such opportunities and conditions is shared by all members of the academic community, including students.
The primacy of the faculty's role and its unquestionable centrality in the educational process must be recognized and preserved. The primary educational purpose of Columbia Basin College (herein referred to as "CBC" or "the college") - its intellectual content and integrity - is the responsibility of the faculty.
Each right of an individual places a reciprocal duty upon others: the duty to permit the individual to exercise the right. As a member of the academic community, the student has both rights and responsibilities, the most essential right being the right to learn. The college has a duty to provide the student those privileges, opportunities, and protections which best promote the learning process in all its aspects. The student also has duties to other members of the academic community, the most important of which is to refrain from interference with the rights of others which are equally essential to the purposes and processes of the college.
As an agency of the state of Washington, CBC must respect and adhere to all laws established by local, state, and federal authorities. CBC has developed a set of regulations to assure the orderly conduct of the affairs of the college.
