9 PATHWAY TO THE FUTURE HEALTH CAREER & TECHNICAL EDUCATION, MATH AND SCIENCE OVERVIEW El Paso Community College Rio Grande Campus is strategically located near the center of the downtown business district, nestled in the historical Sunset Heights District, and is conveniently located a few blocks off the I 10 Mesa Exit. This Campus has been steadily expanding since it first opened in Enrollment averages over 4,500 students in credit classes each semester. Unique to the Rio Grande Campus is the Health Career & Technical Education, Math and Sciences Division, which provides credit certificate and associate degree programs with health career students for the entire college district. Health Career Programs and courses are found at MDP, VV, and TM as well as RG. Most of the credit health career programs require specialized admissions, have limited enrollment, and must adhere to specialized accrediting agency requirements. All of the credit health career programs are currently accredited recognized or approved by various states and/or national agencies. Patient care clinics are also located at the Rio Grande Campus Border Health Clinic. In addition to the credit programs, a grant funded program seeks to improve the recruitment and retention to minority and disadvantaged high school graduates into the health programs. A summer institute provides intensity preparation in the Basic Sciences, Math, English, Reading, and Study Skills. Field trips to health care agencies and university health science centers as well as guest speakers assist the participants in obtaining an overview of the variety of opportunities in health care. Throughout the year, staff and Division faculty participate in career fair activities at local high schools, colleges, and elementary schools to provide information to future health care professional.

It is exceedingly difficult to troubleshoot an issue with a second or third party attempting to translate the problem from another source. You may also your request to: while attempting to troubleshoot the problem, the IT Service Desk may ask the user to reboot their PC. Many errors users encounter are minor, temporary and easily resolved with a simple reboot. User compliance with this measure is critical in ensuring that problems not requiring the presence of a PC technician are filtered out. To expedite the Work Order process, the user must have the following information when calling in a request: An EPCC E mail Address (the work order number for their request is e mailed to that address) First/Last Name EPCC Phone Number Campus Department Room Number EPCC Tag number for the unit affected Unit Type / Model (for Warranty Purposes) A detailed description of the problem Once this information is input by the IT Service Desk, the request will be assigned to the tech on duty at that campus. Some campuses have more than one tech assigned and the work orders will be distributed evenly between them. Multiple requests (up to five requests) in the same room will be assigned to one tech, with other incoming requests being distributed to the other techs.

However, a student who consistently fails to submit assignments or take tests can be withdrawn from the course. The College and Division want its students to stay in class. If they put forth an effort and are making progress, then they should be considered to be meeting the requirements of course pursuit. Faculty Expectations Manual Revised Page 28

31 CLINICAL LEARNING EXPERIENCES Assistance and instruction is to be provided to students when need is identified by either the student or instructor, except during an evaluation situation. Evaluation situations should be clearly identified to the student in advance and/or requested by the student. Even in evaluation situations, however, faculty should intervene to prevent unsafe practice. For each rotation of students, faculty is expected to provide an appropriate orientation to the affiliate and specific department/unit, which supplements the on line community wide orientation. This orientation should include demonstration of appropriate procedures and equipment which are unique to that affiliate or which students have not yet mastered. Faculty members are expected to complete any formative or summative evaluations of students in a timely manner. All students should review the written evaluations, and sign that the evaluation has been reviewed with them. This should occur on the day of the evaluation or the next class day when appropriate. Rotation evaluations should be completed by the end of the rotation or as otherwise scheduled on the course calendar. The student needs this information to continue to improve their performance as they progress to other clinical rotations. Faculty are expected to submit grades from clinical evaluations and written clinical assignments to the appropriate course responsible faculty member for recording on the grade report and calculation of the final course grade. Grades should be submitted as soon as possible after evaluation of the course materials or clinical rotation. Faculty members are expected to guide student clinical learning experiences to meet the stated course objectives. However, when the patient census does not allow for meeting of specific objectives, the faculty member is expected to adapt the learning experiences and objectives to provide for expanded experience and learning by the student. This may include demonstrating procedures not yet covered in class when the opportunity presents itself in the clinical setting, attending in services, discussion of case studies, review of patient records, review of prior skills, review of equipment function to include maintenance and troubleshooting, or other appropriate and related activities. Students and faculty are to evaluate the clinical learning experiences at the affiliate at the end of each rotation. Generic forms are available in the Division office and a copy is attached for your use if a program specific form has not been developed. These should be submitted to clinical or program coordinator for compilation and review no later than the end of the semester. Identified areas of concern regarding an affiliate should indicate a review of that affiliate by the clinical and program coordinator, with recommendations being determined by the discipline faculty and documented in discipline minutes. Refer to next page for sample forms. (See FORMS folder in a separate file). Faculty Expectations Manual Revised Page 31

60 (See forms in a separate file) FIELD TRIPS A field trip form should be submitted for tours and special activities conducted at off campus sites. Routine clinical activities do not require a field trip form. Forms may be obtained in the Division Office and should be submitted one week prior to the event. FINAL EXAMS In some courses the final/exit exam is administered prior to the days designated by the College for the final exams. This occurs for two reasons: (1) allows time for the scoring and return of the results, and (2) allow time for retakes. This early testing does not excuse classes from meeting during the college specified final exam time. Instructors not holding classes during the designated final exam class time will have hourly pay adjusted accordingly. If exams are scheduled at a different time, please notify the Division office of the date, time, and location in case of emergencies. HOSPITALITY REQUESTS Requests for hospitality (meals, refreshments, etc.) must be submitted to the Division Office at least 3 weeks prior to the event to prevent problems in arrangements. Request forms and the menus are available in the Division office. Off campus catering is acceptable for events not being held in the cafeteria area.

Probationary full time faculty is eligible to apply to tenure during their 5 th year of employment. TRAVEL OUT OF TOWN TRAVEL If you are planning to submit an abstract to make a presentation at a conference, your proposal and out of town travel MUST be approved in advance. If you are submitting a proposal and are going to pay your own way, the Dean needs to know you are submitting a proposal and that your absence is planned. Failure to comply with this process may result in your trip being non refunded and/or not approved. Expenditure reports for trips completed are due within 10 days of return from the trip. The out of town travel procedure, copy attached, states that the senior level cabinet officers have the authority to request checks for travel advances an hotels when an EPCC employee does not have an a personal credit card to be used for travel expenses. Faculty Expectations Manual Revised Page 60

61 IN TOWN TRAVEL Only one request for reimbursement can be submitted during each month. Even if the reimbursement is for different months, you cannot submit multiple reports during a single month. For example, if you do one report for September, and one for October, and get them signed in November, you cannot take the one for September to the Cashier on November 5, and then take the October one to the cashier on November 15. However, you can submit both September's and October's on the same day on November if the combined total is under $ You can also submit both September's and October's reports together for a check request in November IF the combined total is over $ and it has been signed by the Campus Dean. In town travel is for additional trips made from campus to other sites and back during the day. It does not reimburse you for the initial trip to the college or back home. If your Faculty Coordinator requires review prior to submission, please make sure their signature is obtained before submitting it to the Division office. Remember that In town Travel for August (or prior months) must be submitted ASAP due to the change in budget year. The above guidelines are now being enforced and tracked. If a violation occurs, a warning will be given for the first violation, and then additional disciplinary action will be taken. TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS ACCORDING TO COLLEGE PROCEDURES The travel request form is to be submitted and approved by the Campus Dean and Vice President of Instruction prior to confirming any travel or hotel arrangements. Travel request must be submitted to Accounts Payable a minimum of 15 days prior to the date of departure. This means it must be submitted to the Campus Dean and Vice President of Instruction in time to meet those timelines. Failure to meet that timeline may mean that checks for registration or travel advances are not able to be processed. Earlier submission is requested to allow for lower prices on air travel. TRAVEL REQUEST FORM Form must be completely filled out. Copies of the registration and hotel form must be attached (already filled out). Address information on where to mail registration checks must be complete. Do not use abbreviations for agencies. Copies of the brochure or letter with information about the planned activity must be attached to the travel request form. TRAVEL ADVANCES Require submission of a memo (form in Division office) requesting the travel advance. The advance must be approved by the Vice President of Instruction before Accounts Payable will cut check for the advance. Advances are not automatically approved.

Any money due to the College is to be paid at that time. Receipts must be attached to the expenditure form. If the College owes you money, a check will be forwarded from Accounts Payable. Roberta Rodriguez has been designated by the College as our travel representative. She has the responsibility to make all plane reservations (and car rental) arrangements. She has the responsibility to select the most economical means which may mean it may not be your preferred air carrier or your preferred time. If you Faculty Expectations Manual Revised Page 61

62 have special requests, please put them in writing. She will attempt to meet your requests IF it is within the college guidelines. *Please note that incomplete travel requests will be returned for completion. This may delay making travel arrangements, may increase cost above the budgeted amount, or may prevent an advance from being approved. *Late submission of travel requests may result in disapproval of the trip request or may increase costs above the budgeted amount as well as prevent an advance from being approved. *Making your own arrangements prior to approval of a trip request may result in non reimbursement for expenses incurred. PETTY CASH (See FORMS folder in a separate file) PETTY CASH LIMIT IS $100 PER DAY Receipts from the same day's purchases cannot be split to meet that limit. If more than $ is spent on the same day, a check request must be submitted for reimbursement for the total spent. For example, if you go to Office Depot and spent $125.00, you cannot split your purchases into one receipt for $50 and a second receipt for $75 and submit them for petty cash reimbursement on two different days. The $ may be reimbursed by a check request. IN TOWN CONFERENCES For faculty wishing reimbursement for in town conferences, there are two methods which may be used: 1. Faculty may submit their registration form directly to the sponsoring agency. Upon completion of the conference, the receipt for the registration fee or canceled check may be submitted for reimbursement. 2. Faculty may submit a check request and a copy of the registration form to the Division office at least 3 weeks in advance of the registration deadline. Accounts Payable will then send the registration fee directly to the sponsoring agency by check. Faculty Expectations Manual Revised Page 62

63 PROFESSIONALISM Faculty is expected to be role models for the students at all times. This includes areas of professional appearance, behavior, and action. Communication with students about other faculty members or other students is inappropriate, except as noted in the college's grievance process. Faculty should not solicit positive or negative comments or communication from students about another faculty member. There is to be no retaliation by faculty against students who make a complaint about the faculty member or the program. Retaliation by students against faculty for a failing or low evaluation/exam score, etc. should not be encouraged or supported by faculty members. Faculty members are responsible for maintaining their clinical skills, licensure or certification and their continuing education in the field. Individual faculty members are strongly encouraged to utilize the clinical or classroom evaluation of faculty by students at the end of each clinical rotation or class, whether that course is identified as an official course for evaluation. Faculty is strongly encouraged to share these evaluation results with the Instructional Coordinator and/or Campus Dean. When such evaluations are part of a discipline approved program evaluation plan, evaluation of all faculty by the students at the end of the semester or other time interval are acceptable. (A copy of the current form is attached for your reference; additional copies are available in the Division office). Faculty is expected to arrive on time for all class and clinical activities as scheduled except when absence or tardiness is due to approved college or discipline activities and/or unanticipated emergencies. Faculty is expected to maintain class and clinical hours as scheduled. Classes should not be dismissed early except for unusual circumstances or when alternative arrangements have been approved. Extended coffee breaks and meal breaks should not be allowed for students or faculty members. EPCC receives state funding based on course contact hours. Faculty are expected to provide remediation for students, whether academically or clinically, based on the individual student needs. These efforts should be documented. Remediation may take place during class, clinical, laboratory, or office hours. Other arrangements for individual remediation or group remediation may also be appropriate. Faculty is expected to follow discipline approved procedures on such items as grading, absences, tardiness, student uniforms, and student evaluation. Faculty Expectations Manual Revised Page 63

65 EPCC COPYRIGHT PROCEDURES District Advertising and Printing MEMORANDUM TO: FROM: All Employees Joyce Cordell; Director, Marketing & Community Relations DATE: August 27, 2012 Ruben Gallardo; Director, Purchasing and Contract Management SUBJECT: District Advertising and Printing EPCC Procedure , Control and Management of Publications, was recently revised and re published. This procedure states that, No printing will be contracted to an outside vendor without prior approval of the director of Marketing and Community Relations, who will evaluate the need for such a contract." All printing of the District s material, including advertisements, must first be approved by the Marketing and Community Relations Department before it is contracted or printed. In addition, the Director of Marketing and Community Relations must receive (electronic or physical) a final proof of all EPCC requested items from the vendor prior to printing. Requisitions for printed and promotional items will not be approved until the Director of Marketing and Community Relations sees the final proof. The reasons for this procedure are to ensure the quality and consistency in the District s image and message. In addition, the Marketing and Community Relations Department is responsible for the District s overall printing budget. This Department not only monitors this overall budget, but is also responsible for presenting it to the Board of Trustees for approval on an annual basis. Additionally, Procedure , Purchasing Procedures, states that The procurement of goods and services acquired prior to obtaining proper authorization through the requisition process is considered to be an unauthorized transaction. This type of transaction directly violates established College purchasing procedures. Any employee who places an order for goods and/or services without following the requisition process violates College purchasing procedures. College employees, who generate financial liability for the College without being authorized to do so, will be subject to disciplinary action, including suspension or termination. Also, The Purchasing Department is the only authorized entity, within the College, to issue Purchase Orders or Contracts. All printing purchase orders will be opened by the Marketing and Community Relations Office. Please take a moment to read these procedures. All of the District s Policies and Procedures may be found at Thank you for your assistance with these matters. Faculty Expectations Manual Revised Page 65

66 We are all part of the El Paso Community College family. Therefore it is important we all work together in putting forth a unified message in a proper and legal manner. Being an educational institution, EPCC deals with many aspects of the use of copyrighted materials. We hope the following guidelines will help you in your endeavors and make you more familiar with the help the EPCC Marketing Department can offer. Outside of the classroom, copyright laws are the same for educational institutions and the general public. If you can see it, read it, hear it or watch it, copyright laws apply. If you are the person who originally created it, you hold the rights to it. If you are not the one who originally created it, you must have written permission to use it from the creator. Even if you or a staff member created something to use in a flyer, poster, etc, El Paso Community College requests that you give written permission and keep it on file. You cannot use any creative or intellectual work without written permission from the creator. When making items such as flyers or advertisements, beware of websites that say free pictures or photographs. The majorities of these sites do charge a base fee, require you to credit the photographer or have requirements for internet use only. Many of the photos from these sites are of a small file size and would not copy to print very well anyway. The only places that truly have free items with no restrictions are government websites. The content of any website ending in.gov is public domain. The EPCC Marketing and Community Relations Department is here to simplify the process for you. The Marketing Department has marketing professionals to assist you every step of the way. Marketing also purchases a source of stock photography that the college has the right to use. The EPCC procedure , Control and Management of Publications, in part states that all printed materials must be reviewed and approved by the EPCC Marketing Department. This means that even if you still want to design your materials, you still must have Marketing view and approve the material. Anything that will be seen outside of the classroom, either on campus or by the general public must get the approval of the Marketing Department. For materials used in a classroom setting, the copyright laws are more lenient. The legislative privilege of Fair Use allows the use of intellectual property not allowed outside of the classroom. Columbia University has a website devoted to copyright and Fair Use in the educational setting. Visit for more information, including a Fair Use checklist. There are also separate copyright laws dealing with Distance/Online Education. The legislative procedure is known as the Technology and Copyright Harmonization (TEACH) Act of Visit the Ball State University website at for more information.

However, it is advised that Instructor not give an "F" for the course to the accused student, since this places any challenges to the charge directly in the Instructor and bypasses the student's right to due process. If, upon notification by the Instructor of the charge of academic dishonesty, the student drops the class, the Instructor's final course failing grade does not over ride the drop. Nevertheless, if the issue is referred to the appropriate Vice President, the student will go through the administrative process and, if found guilty, can be administratively re instated and receive the failing grade for the course, if that is the administrative disposition of the case. When any of the above actions are taken by an Instructor, it is requested that a copy of all documentation, to include corrective action taken, be forwarded to the responsible Dean/Director and the appropriate Vice President. These offices will then have a copy of the incident on file in case the student challenges the action at a later date and have information concerning previous incidents on file in case the student is reported for academic dishonesty in another class. II. If the student denies the charges the issue should be referred through the Instructors' Dean/Director to the appropriate Vice President for administrative disposition. Copies of all documentation/evidence must be forwarded in support of the charge. The Instructor should also include a recommendation on the disposition of the violation. If the evidence presented is sufficient to uphold a finding of a violation of the Student Code of Conduct, the student will receive a letter informing him/her to make an appointment with the appropriate Vice President to discuss the incident. At that meeting the student is advised of his/her right to due process. Which includes the right to a disciplinary hearing under the provisions of the Student Code of Conduct; Paragraph III, Student Discipline, I. Discipline Hearings Procedure. If the student does not dispute the charge, the student signs a document stating that he/she does not dispute the charge and will accept the administrative disposition of the appropriate Vice President. The Vice President then administers the penalties for the violation. If the student denies the charges, the case is then referred to a Disciplinary Hearing. See the Student Code of Conduct, Paragraph I for details. Following is the administrative disposition (penalty) normally applied in cases of academic dishonesty: First Offense: The student will receive a failing grade for the course and be placed on Disciplinary Probation for one year. A record of disciplinary action becomes a permanent record of the student. Second Offense: The student will receive a failing grade for the course, administrative withdrawal from all current semester courses (without refund), and suspension for one year. Third Offense: The student will receive a failing grade for the course, administrative withdrawal from all current semester courses (without refund), and suspension for one year or permanent expulsion. The above examples represent the "normal" administrative disposition of cases; however, each case is reviewed Faculty Expectations Manual Revised Page 68

69 on an individual basis. Mitigating circumstances are taken into account and the outcome may vary case by case. Disruptive Behavior/Disorderly Conduct in the Classroom The Instructor must use his/her own judgment and common sense as to what constitutes disruptive behavior, but normally it will be any activity that interrupts or causes the Instructor or a student to stop a class activity to respond to another student who is behaving in an unacceptable manner. It could be talking on a cell phone while the class is in session, talking to others in the class when not directed to do so by the Instructor, or an unsolicited or unwarranted interruption or outburst that disrupts the class. When an Instructor feels that a student is being disruptive, the following step should be followed: First Incident: A one on one verbal warning describing the unacceptable behavior and the type of behavior expected and required of the student. A record of the date and time of incident should be kept by the Instructor. Second Incident: A one on one verbal warning with a written record of the second meeting outlining the type of incident which took place with the dates of both/all incidents recorded. Again describe the type of behavior expected/required and indicate that a further violation will result in the student being referred to the appropriate Campus Dean or Director. Third Incident: Refer to Dean/Director who will meet with the student and Instructor to discuss the issue and give the student a written warning regarding the unacceptable behavior and indicating that any further incident will result in the student being referred to the appropriate Vice President for disciplinary action. The Instructor needs to inform the appropriate Vice President of the issue and provide all back up documentation prior to the meeting with the student. Fourth Incident: Refer student to the appropriate Vice President for administrative disposition. All back up documentation needs to be forwarded by the Dean /Director with a recommendation on the corrective action to be taken. Administrative disposition normally taken if the student is referred to the appropriate Vice President. Warning of Disciplinary Probation for up to one year. Administrative withdrawal from the class Suspension from one semester up to one year Permanent expulsion If the disruption is so severe as to present an immediate danger to persons or property or is an on going threat to the academic process, the Instructor should notify the EPCC Police Department immediately to have the student escorted out of the classroom and to have the incident recorded. The student is not allowed to return to the class until he/she meets with the appropriate Vice President of Student Services. In these cases, the student may be placed on Summary Suspension pending administrative disposition of the case. See Student Code of Conduct, H, 3 and 4. Faculty Expectations Manual Revised Page 69

70 Final Examinations MEMORANDUM DATE: January 25, 2010 (Reviewed February 2010) SUBJECT: FINAL EXAMINATIONS Please make sure that all FINAL examinations in the future semesters are scheduled during FINAL WEEK. NO FINAL can be given prior to that WEEK. Unit examinations may be given the week prior, but a FINAL examination must be given during that last week. IF NO FINAL is to be given for the course, the class must still meet during that week. Treatment of Minors MEMORANDUM DATE: January 25, 2010 (Reviewed February 2010) SUBJECT: TREATMENT OF MINORS Certain circumstances have come to attention regarding potentially inappropriate screenings on high school or young clients that may have been occurring on our campus. Therefore, please follow the following guidelines: Unless there is a parent present, written consent from the parent or school, no treatments, laboratory tests, or other procedures should be performed on clients under the age of 18 (preferably 21) in our on campus laboratories and clinics. Changes in Assignments MEMORANDUM DATE: January 25, 2010 (Reviewed February 2010) SUBJECT: CHANGES IN ASSIGNMENTS Please do not change class assignments, dates or hours scheduled to work, or locations scheduled to work, without notifying the division office in advance so we can have the correct information on assignments when submitted initially or at least get a timely revision (or substitute form) in so that extra work is not created for multiple departments. Faculty should not make their own arrangements to exchange classes, substitute, etc. without notifying the division office and appropriate coordinator. When assignments are changed without notifying the division office of these changes in assignments, this may result in various negative impacts, including but not limited to: 1. Involved faculty not receiving any paycheck or receiving an underpayment Faculty Expectations Manual Revised Page 70

71 2. Involved faculty receiving an overpayment, which has to be paid back or which results in a decreased check during the next pay period. 3. Revised contracts have to be submitted. These then have to be processed through personnel and payroll. 4. Changes in assignments may impact total workload or other assignments for other departments such as continuing education. 5. Changes in assignments may also impact official college reports such as class rosters, census reports, and grade scanners. Errors in these documents could impact state funding during audits. Faculty Expectations Manual Revised Page 71

72 PART V PAYROLL INFORMATION Payroll Advances Requests for payroll advances may be initiated upon request should be through the Division office. Payroll advances are not routinely approved by the Comptroller. There must be unique circumstances such as illness in the family (documented) or administrative delays in paperwork which were unavoidable and not due to faculty delays in submission of documentation. Payroll Checks Should there be any concerns regarding pay checks, check with the Payroll Department. If payroll is missing any documents, they will contact the Division office as necessary Time Sheets A reminder to part time faculty, work studies, and staff who are paid by time sheets. Time sheets should be in the Division office 3 days prior to the deadline for submission each month. This will avoid any delays in processing your checks. All time sheets are signed by the Campus Dean prior to being transmitted to Payroll. Part Time Faculty Benefits One day sick leave per semester (Fall and Spring only) (NON CUMULATIVE) Jury service (attendance documented by court). Absence exchange program, three days per year (Fall, Spring, and Summer with a maximum of two days in any one semester). (This program already exists). Faculty Expectations Manual Revised Page 72

Support services can be arranged for all campus locations. For more information, refer to the College Catalog, or call any campus center for students with disabilities: RG: , Room B 200 VV: , Room C 112 MDP: , Room A 111 NW: , Room M 54 TM: , Room If accommodations are needed to complete program competencies, a plan will be developed to assist students to meet course/program competencies whenever possible. An individualized learning plan will be jointly developed between the student, the faculty member, and a representative from the Center for Students with Disabilities. To initiate this process, please contact any of the following individuals; a Health Career Counselor, the Faculty Coordinator, a representative of the Center for Students with Disabilities, or the Division Dean of Health Careers. YOU must initiate the request for accommodations! Accommodations requested and approved must allow you to meet the same course outcomes as students with no accommodations. Accommodations for Licensing, Certification, or Registry Examinations Most agencies which license, certify, or register health care professionals also have established guidelines for the examinations for graduates of health occupations programs. These guidelines usually describe resting modifications during the licensing examination for candidates with disabilities. The following outlines a typical guideline: 1. Candidate must submit a request for testing modification directly to the appropriate licensing, certification, or registry agency. Examples of supporting documentation would include: Letter from candidate Letter from medical professional documenting disability and requested modification Letter from program coordinator identifying modifications granted by the program 2. The agency will review the request and supporting documentation for completeness, fairness, security, and impact. Information will also be provided to the testing service. 3. An approval letter will be mailed to the candidate from the agency and will include: The accommodations approved. The test center that was notified of the request for the accommodations.

74 STUDENT COMPLAINTS Students with a complaint about an instructor or a grade should follow the grievance procedure: 1. Talk with the instructor involved 2. If not resolved, then discuss the situation with the Faculty Coordinator. 3. If still not resolved, then discuss the situation, and if appropriate, submit a written complaint to the Campus Dean. Any grievance should identify the problem and the solution which the student requests. When student complaints are received by the Campus Dean, faculty members involved will be requested to respond to the concerns identified by the student and to provide any documentation required. This request is routine; it does not imply a decision about the case. After review of documentation from the faculty and/or student, meetings to discuss resolution of the issue will be scheduled as appropriate. STUDENT DISCIPLINARY ACTIONS Unsafe Clinical Practice: Faculty has the authority to dismiss students from clinical practice for unsafe clinical practice. Guidelines are in the Health Career Student Clinician s Handbook. (A copy of the handbook will be posted on the Division website). Dishonesty: Faculty has the authority to dismiss a student from an examination for cheating, discipline students for plagiarism, etc. The level of "punishment" (e.g. grade of "F" for the examination, dismissal from the course, etc.), however, should be discussed in the course syllabus provided to students at the beginning of the course. Attendance: Faculty may require attendance and use attendance as a portion of the course grade. This however must be identified in the syllabus as to how it will be graded. Attendance may be one factor for dropping a student; however, it cannot be the only factor. Refer to the College Catalog regarding course pursuit for more information. Student Right to Appeal: All students have the right to appeal your decision regarding disciplinary action or grades. The process for appeal includes complaints to the Campus Dean. Some student concerns also may involve the Vice President from Student Services. In some circumstances, the student may also request a formal hearing. Refer to the College Student Handbook for more information. Copies of the College Student Handbook are available from Student Government. WITHDRAWING/REINSTATING STUDENTS A student may be withdrawn from a course for the following reasons: (1) disruptive behavior; (2) the failure of the student to appear for examinations, presentations, or other required class activities as identified in the course syllabus; or (3) at the failure of the student to submit required papers, projects and/or reports. A student cannot be dropped solely on the basis of his/her failure to attend class. If you are unsure about dropping a student, discuss the situation with the Faculty Coordinator or Campus Dean. IMPORTANT: If you want to withdraw a student due to disruptive behavior, contact the Campus Dean prior to completing the form. It is important to maintain a record of attendance for all students. If a student appeals the withdrawal, the instructor will be asked to submit his/her attendance and grade records. Students dropped for reasons other Faculty Expectations Manual Revised Page 74

75 than behavior may continue to attend class until they appear of the drop is complete. Every effort will be made to expeditiously complete the appeal process. Students dropped from a class cannot remain in the class if the drop is upheld in the appeals process. Students who initiate their own withdraw from a class cannot continue to attend. Remember to fill in all parts of the withdrawal form. Submit the form to the Student Services Coordinator at the Rio Grande Campus or to Admissions and Records at Valle Verde in person or by mail. A student dropped or withdrawn form a course cannot continue to attend class. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the Faculty Coordinator or the Campus Dean. Every reasonable effort should be made to retain the student in the class. Instructors are encouraged to contact the student when attendance or course pursuit becomes a problem. Often such communication between the instructor and student results in the student remaining enrolled in the course and satisfactorily pursuing the objectives. Withdrawal actions for nonattendance should be done before census date. Once the census date has passed withdrawal forms must be used. Only the date submitted is required on the withdrawal form (which also becomes the effective date). Students dropped prior to census date as having never attended cannot be reinstated. Students dropped after census date who have attended some class meetings can be reinstated. Students dropped following census date should be reinstated no later than two weeks following the date of drop. Do not hold reinstatement forms beyond two weeks. The effective date of reinstatement (DOR) must be the same date as the date the withdrawal form was submitted. Also, the date submitted should not be more than two weeks following the date the withdrawal form was submitted. Reinstatement forms must be submitted to the Division office. Withdrawal and reinstatement forms can be obtained from any campus admission office. Faculty is expected to maintain confidentiality, whether dealing with patient information or student information. Information about student performance should not be shared with other students. TROUBLESHOOTING PROBLEMS WITH COURSES, STUDENTS, FACILITIES Should you experience difficulties (or anticipate problems) with a course, examination, behavior of students, student complaints, facilities or equipment concerns, please keep your Instructional Coordinator and/or Campus Dean informed. They may be able to suggest ways to deal with the situation. In addition, they would like to be able to provide additional support and assistance as needed to prevent minor situations from becoming MAJOR problems. Faculty Expectations Manual Revised Page 75

82 Discrimination and Harassment PART VIII EMPLOYMENT DESCRIMINATION Discrimination and harassment will not be tolerated of employees or students on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or any other prohibited reason. Employees and students are entitled to an environment which is conducive to both learning and productivity. Activities which erode this environment will be dealt with by the College swiftly and decisively. The College has developed a grievance procedure for employees and students to use, without fear of redress or retaliation, to address allegations of discriminatory actions, or breaches of acceptable standards of behavior. Specific guidelines for the processing of discrimination complaints may be found in College Procedure Faculty Expectations Manual Revised Page 82

83 PART IX FACULTY DEVELOPMENT OPORTUNITIES TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT The College has a variety of resources to enhance the capabilities of its employees.

These programs are designed to improve and enhance current and future skills and abilities, to provide information on institutional priorities and topics related to personal and professional development interests. The EPCC Leadership Development Academy is a one year training program designed to enhance the leadership qualities, characteristics, and skills of college employees. The program offers two tracks of training. Track I, Fundamentals of Leadership, is open to all full time employees, by self nomination. Track II, Advanced Leadership, is open to all full time employees who have supervisory responsibility for at least five employees, who serve as Faculty Coordinator, or who currently serve as officers in an EPCC employee association. Entry into Track II can be gained either by self nomination or by supervisory nomination. Applications to participate in the Leadership Academy are e mailed to all employees at the beginning of the fall semester. Employees may also download an application from the EPCC web site or pick one up from any campus library. The application must be submitted by the designated deadline. The Employee Relations Department also provides specialized programs in equal employment opportunity and equal educational opportunity, including sexual harassment. This workshop complies with Chapter 21, Sec Texas, Texas Labor Code.

Workshops for faculty are held during Faculty Development Week in the fall and spring semesters. Staff workshops are held during each semester. The College s primary mission is the development of an individual s knowledge and skills. With this in mind, it then follows that each employee can explore the numerous resources available in this organization. Eligible employees, retirees and their dependents can use the various services of the learning resources centers located at each campus. Employees can enroll in many of the credit and non credit classes offered by the College through use of the Staff Scholarship benefit program.

86 PART XI FACULTY CREDENTIALS REQUIREMENTS AND VERIFICATIONS FACULTY CREDENTIALS VERIFICATION College Procedure outlines the process for the verification of the credentials of each full time and part time faculty member. The purpose is to ensure that every faculty member employed at the College possesses the academic preparation and training/experience necessary to meet the minimum requirements of the accrediting bodies and state agencies. Prior to the employment of a faculty member, the faculty supervisor (Dean or Director) reviews the credentials of the individual to verify that the minimum requirements are met. This is accomplished through a comparison by the supervisor of the credentials outlined in the Summary of Instructional Qualifications with those possessed by the potential faculty member. If the prospective faculty member s credentials meet or exceed those required, the Faculty Credentials Verification form is completed and submitted through administrative channels for approval. Approval by the senior instructional supervisor is required if a credentials exception is requested. The completed Faculty Credentials Verification form is forwarded to the Personnel Services Department to be included in the faculty member s employee file. The Faculty Credentials Review Committee (FCRC) is a Standing College Committee, and is charged with reviewing and making recommendations regarding faculty credentials issues, including credential verification, dispute resolutions, and permanent credential exception recommendations. This committee is also responsible for maintaining the Summary of Instructional Qualifications. Only course work or degrees granted by an accredited college or university or an acceptable evaluation of foreign course work or degrees will be accepted for the credentialing of a faculty member. All transcripts submitted by a prospective faculty member from a foreign university or school must be accompanied by a full translation in English by an acceptable translator. Further, each foreign transcript must be evaluated for equivalency to United States accredited course work by an acceptable agency. All costs for these services will be borne by the prospective faculty member Faculty Expectations Manual Revised Page 86
