Please be courteous of others when using the Technology Learning Center. This includes avoiding disruptive behaviors such as loud conversations and other behaviors that interfere with students’ right to learn and work in an academic environment free of distraction.
All patrons of the Technology Learning Center are expected to abide by the expectations for behavior and policies stated in the Thomas Nelson Student handbook (see below).
From the Thomas Nelson Student Handbook, Pages 47 and 48:
Student Behavior Expectations
All students and employees are entitled to a safe environment conducive to learning. Each individual student is considered a responsible adult and is expected as such to maintain standards of conduct that are appropriate to membership in the College community. Students of the College are expected to conduct themselves in an acceptable manner, both within the College and elsewhere.
Disruptive Student Behavior
Disruptive student behavior is student behavior that disrupts or interferes with the educational mission of the College. Disruptive behavior interferes with a College member’s ability to perform his or her duties in a classroom, office, any on-campus venue or open space, or off-campus school sponsored activity, event or course, or behavior that interferes with students’ right to learn in an academic environment free of distraction. Thomas Nelson Community College will not tolerate disruptive behaviors.
Student Code of Conduct
The College reserves the right to maintain a safe and orderly educational environment for students and staff. Therefore, when in the judgment of college officials, a student’s conduct disrupts or threatens to disrupt the College community, appropriate disciplinary action will be taken to restore and protect the orderliness of the Thomas Nelson Community College community.
All individuals under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult when in the TLC and cannot occupy a computer.
From the TNCC Handbook, Page 64:
Children on Campus
Current college policy dictates that no child under the age of fifteen (15) may be left unsupervised at any time while on the Thomas Nelson Campus, unless approved by the Vice President for Student Affairs. Any person who leaves a child unattended may be subject to disciplinary action, or in the case of a non-student, criminal action.
