  • Permit violation of student confidentiality and privacy, except where specific disclosure is required by legislation or regulation.
    • Use forms or procedures that elicit information for which there is no clear necessity.
    • Use methods of collecting, reviewing, storing or transmitting student information that inadequately protect against improper access to personal information.
  • Permit admission, registration, evaluation, or recognition processes that treat students unfairly.
  • Permit unfair, inconsistent or untimely handling of student complaints.
    • Permit students to be without a process for registering a complaint or concern, including an appeal process, or to be uninformed of the process.
  • Permit students to be uninformed of student rights and responsibilities, including expectations for student behavior, and the consequences of failure to adhere to the expectations.
  • Retaliate against any student for non-disruptive expression of dissent.
  • Permit decisions affecting students to be implemented without appropriate notification to students.
