Purdue University Northwest supports the principles of freedom of expression for both faculty and students. The University respects the rights of faculty to teach and students to learn. Maintenance of these rights requires conditions in the learning environment that do not impede the learning process. Disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. An individual engaging in such behavior may be subject to disciplinary action.
Process for Resolving Issues
The process for addressing student issues, concerns, or problems is as follows:
Purdue University Northwest seeks to help students with problems at the most appropriate level in the University. Students should proceed through the appropriate department in which the student had the issue, concern or problem as outlined by following the appropriate chain-of-command.
Students should discuss classroom issues with their instructor. If unresolved, students should follow the academic-chain-of-command for that department.
Students should discuss University issues with the appropriate staff member or supervisor. If unresolved, students should follow the non-academic-chain-of-command for that department.
