General Misconduct in the Classroom

Faculty members at the University of Alabama at Birmingham have the independent authority to exclude a student from any class session in which the student displays disruptive behavior that threatens the learning environment and/or safety and well-being of others in the classroom. 

  1. If circumstances warrant dismissal from a class session for behavior reasons, the faculty member should contact the Director of Student Advocacy, Rights and Conduct immediately following the class to discuss the situation and make a determination about whether Student Conduct Code charges will be initiated and whether the student should be permitted to return to the next class session.
  2. The faculty member maintains the authority to remove the student from any future class session during which the student is disruptive.
