NEW BROOKWOOD LABOR COLLEGE POLICIES


The following policies and expectations were approved by the New Brookwood Labor College Board of Directors on 04/09/2019.

Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is essential to a strong teaching and learning environment and New Brookwood students are expected to complete coursework honestly . This means presenting only original work and thoughts as the student’s own and giving credit where credit is due. Students may not plagiarize or cheat on work and must use appropriate citations in written work. New Brookwood students are also required to present themselves and their qualifications honestly.  


New Brookwood recognizes that as a non-traditional institution, students may need extra support to meet academic integrity standards. Faculty are available to answer questions, provide training, and work one-on-one with students to ensure high standards of academic honesty. 

Accommodations

New Brookwood Labor College is committed to providing equitable access to learning opportunities for all students and will work to make reasonable accommodations whenever possible.  Please reach out to New Brookwood faculty with any learning needs. 

Equal Opportunity and Commitment to Diversity

New Brookwood is an equal opportunity institution and diversity is a central part of our mission to build an inclusive labor movement. Neither enrollment nor hiring decisions will be made on the basis of race, ethnicity, creed, religion, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, marital or partnership status, pregnancy or family obligations, disability, public assistance status, or veteran status. Whenever possible, New Brookwood will make accommodations for enrolled students who require additional support to participate fully in classes or in community activities. 


Likewise, harassment within our community will not be tolerated. This includes but is not limited to unwelcome advances, coercive requests for sexual or other favors, and/or verbal or physical threats or intimidation. Students, staff, or faculty who experience harassment should email newbrookwood@gmail.com or communicate with a member of the faculty or the Board. 

Inclement Weather

New Brookwood Labor College will follow St. Paul Public Schools decisions regarding closures and delays. In the event that classes need to be cancelled we will do our best to reschedule. 

Student Conduct

Students are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that enhances our mission to build an inclusive labor movement and advances the working class. Behavior that is contrary or detrimental to this mission, including but not limited to harassment, intimidation, coercion, hazing, plagiarism, cheating, or misrepresentation will be dealt with by the New Brookwood Labor College Board of Directors and may be grounds for removal.
