What is Expected of you During Resolution

Resolution Process (Policy 2011.1)

Ask questions

Students involved in Resolution are encouraged to contact the Student Relations office at 734-462-4486 if they have questions or concerns about the process.

Be open to learning

Resolution is intended to protect the interests of the campus community while helping the students involved learn and grow from the experience. Students who take part in Resolution are expected to be able to:

  1. Identify the rule violations in question.
  2. Describe at least one lesson or insight gained from the experience.
  3. Assess how their behavior was or was not consistent with their self-image.
  4. List their educational and/or career goals.
  5. Explain how their time at Schoolcraft can help them achieve their goals.
  6. If appropriate for the case, students will also be able to:

  7. List at least two methods for resolving conflict.
  8. Describe personal or cultural biases that may have influenced their actions.

Check Schoolcraft email

Email correspondence will be sent to the student’s College-issued email account. Students are responsible for checking messages sent to this account.

Evaluate the process

You may be selected to receive a questionnaire asking you to evaluate the Resolution process. Your response will be anonymous and will not be connected to your name or student ID. It will be aggregated with other responses and the data will be used to improve the process.

Keep contact information updated

Printed correspondence will be mailed to the student’s address that is on record with the College. Students are responsible for keeping their mailing address and other contact information up-to-date.

Respond in a timely manner

Communications to students about the Resolution process will include a deadline for the student to respond or to take some action. Meeting these deadlines enables students to move through the Resolution process in a timely manner. Failure to meet deadlines could result in further disciplinary action.

Support the process

Abusing, interfering with or failing to comply with the Resolution process is a violation of this Code (see #45 in The Rules).
