This guidebook is designed to guide students to key information and to enhance the accessibility of John A. Logan College student policies.
As members of the John A. Logan College community, students have certain rights based on their inherent worth and dignity as individuals. These rights include academic freedom, or the freedom to examine issues and express opinions, and constitutional rights of freedom of speech and assembly. Students can expect to be treated with fairness and respect, and can insist on a safe and civil environment in which to reach toward career and personal goals.
These rights come with a responsibility to the college community to assist in supporting that safe and civil environment for others. The College aims to provide all students with an environment that is conducive to academic endeavor, social growth, and individual self-discipline. Accounting for student rights and responsibilities, College policies are meant to help students achieve success in their academic and extracurricular activities.
