Division of Student Affairs

https://www.ncat.edu/campus-life/student-affairs/index.php

The Division of Student Affairs shoulders the major responsibility for Student Life and Student Services. The Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs is the Chief Student Affairs Officer. The Division of Student Affairs is organized to provide services that complement the academic program and contribute to the social, emotional, spiritual, environmental, occupational, intellectual, and physical development of students. Furthermore, programs and services provided within the Division support the community of learners and are broadly categorized into four major areas: (1) Academic Support, (2) Personal Growth and Diversity, (3) Professional Development, and (4) Health & Wellness. Specifically, the Division of Student Affairs plays a vital role in the personal growth, diversity, wellness, academic achievement, and the intellectual and professional development of each individual student by:

  • Fostering a campus culture that encourages each student to articulate his or her own goals for success;
  • Enhancing the learning environment and expanding learning opportunities for all students inside and outside of the classroom;
  • Promoting a campus climate to value, accept and learn from our rich diversity by expanding opportunities for student to acquire local, regional and international experiences; and
  • Developing leaders who believe in and lead others toward supporting civility, mutual respect and diversity in our society through expanding workplaces that include global experiences, advance technology and physical resources to develop students’ full potential.

The Division of Student Affairs is a student-centered partner in the learning community of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. “Building on our comparative educational advantages and our unique civil rights heritage,” we provide interdisciplinary services that complement the academic colleges within the University. Education is enhanced both inside and outside of the classroom, through quality support services and programs that advance student intellectual, cognitive, social, personal, and physical competencies. The Division contributes to academic and personal success, encourages independent civic responsibility, provides skill sets that can be applied globally, and promotes the welfare of all students. Student Affairs helps to connect students to the University and to their future, building alliances that foster recruitment, retention and loyalty beyond graduation.

Student Affairs professionals assist students in areas of counseling, leadership development, student housing, student activities, student governance and community service. Such activities assist students in finding “a sense of belonging, responsibility, and achievement.” The Division carries out its purpose through providing leadership development opportunities for student leaders, the Student Government Association, the Student University Advisory Board, the Council of Presidents, the Residence Hall Association, the Pan-Hellenic Counsel, service organizations and other non-Greek organizations.

Consistent with the overall goals of the University, the Division of Student Affairs include the following array of programs and activities within the following units: (1) Counseling Services, (2) Health Services, (3) Housing & Residence Life, (4) Student Center, (5) Leadership and Civic Engagement, (6) Student Activities and Campus Involvement (7) Student Conduct, (8) Veteran and Military Affairs, (9) Intercultural Engagement, (10) TRIO: Student Support Services, (11) TRIO: Upward Bound Program, (12) TRIO: Educational Talent Search, (13) University Event Center, (14) Administration, (15) BLUE & GOLD Marching Band, (16) Intramural Sports, (17) LGBTA Resource Center, and (18) the Graduate Student Advisory Council.

Drug and Alcohol Education Policy

N.C. A&T strives to provide an educational environment that enhances and supports the intellectual process. Academic communities, including students, faculty and staff, have the collective responsibility to ensure that the environment is conducive to healthy, intellectual growth. Illegal use of harmful and addictive chemical substances poses a threat to the educational environment. Each member of the university family is reminded that, in addition to being subject to university regulations and sanctions regarding illegal drugs and chemicals, they are also subject to state and national laws. This policy has been developed in accordance with the UNC Policy on Illegal Drugs, adopted by the board of governors on January 15, 1988. It established the framework for programs designed to educate the campus community on the harmful effects of illegal substances and assist persons in their efforts to become rehabilitated. It also provided guidance for punishing violators. The link to the Drug and Alcohol Education Policy can be found here: https://hub.ncat.edu/_files/administrative/drug-alc.pdf.

University policies concerning the possession and consumption of alcoholic beverages do not contravene federal, state, or municipal law regarding their purchase. A summary of certain sections of the North Carolina State statute and local ordinances of alcoholic use is included below:

North Carolina Law

Student Conduct

Students enrolled at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University are expected to conduct themselves properly at all times. They are expected to observe standards of behavior and integrity that will reflect favorably upon themselves, their families, and the University. They are further expected to abide by the laws of the city, state, and nation, and by all rules and regulations of the University.

Accordingly, any student who demonstrates an unwillingness to obey the rules and regulations that are prescribed or that may be prescribed to govern the student body may be placed on probation, suspended or expelled from the institution.

Sanctions

Sanctions of expulsion and suspension affect the student’s academic status at the University. In order that students under suspension not contravene the terms of penalty, the Offices of Admissions, Financial Aid, Graduate School, Registrar, Residence Life and University Police (as well as other University Officials) will be notified in writing. During the suspension period, records remain flagged until students are readmitted to the university. Transcripts are held until students have complied with University-imposed sanctions until the period ends. In addition, a suspension or expulsion precludes matriculation at any UNC constituent institution. No credit earned at another institution during the suspension period shall be transferred to North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. A student under expulsion or suspension is subject to arrests for trespassing if found on University property. Students suspended or expelled from the University, for disciplinary reasons, are not eligible for refunds and forfeit any funds previously paid.

Students who lose campus-housing privileges for disciplinary reasons, and have concerns about the financial ramifications, should contact the Office of Housing and Residence Life for guidelines and shall be governed by them.

Failure of Accused to Appear at a Hearing

Scheduled University Judicial Hearings will be held in absentia if a student or organization fails to present himself/herself or an organization representative. The Administrative Hearing Body will convene and make a decision based on the evidence at the hearing.

Should sanctions result from a student’s failure to present himself/herself or an organization’s failure to present for adjudication of a charge, the Offices of Admissions, Financial Aid, Graduate School, Registrar, Residence Life and University Police (as well as other University Officials) will be notified in writing and the student’s and/or organization’s records will be flagged. In addition, transcripts will not be released to persons outside the University until the student answers the charges.

Any one of the following sanctions or combinations may be imposed upon students and/or organizations:

  • Expulsion permanently severs the relationship of a student or organization with the University. With recommendation of a hearing panel, it will be imposed by the Chancellor, and can only be rescinded by the Board of Trustees. This penalty will likely prevent a student’s admission to any other institution of higher education;
  • Indefinite suspension severs the relationship of a student or organization with the University with no date established for the student or organization to return. A date at which time the student or organization may request reinstatement can be established or may be contingent on a student or organization fulfilling one or more stipulations (e.g. resolution of criminal matters pending in the courts, psychological evaluation);
  • Interim separation calls for the immediate removal of a student or organization from the University when there is reasonable cause to believe that the alleged misconduct is of such a serious nature that his/her or its continued presence at the University is potentially dangerous to the health and safety of the University community, its property or educational mission. (In cases of violations of the Student Conduct Regulations, to invoke an interim separation, the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, or his/her designee, conducts a preliminary investigation and hearing with the student or organization, if possible. In cases of academic dishonesty, the Provost/Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, or his/her designee, conducts an investigation. At the appropriate time, the student is informed of the charges and given an opportunity to explain the circumstances);
  • Suspension severs the relationship of a student or organization with the university for a finite period, the terminal date of which coincides with the official ending of an academic semester or summer session;
  • Disciplinary Probation is a period of close scrutiny of a student or organization by the university during which his/her conduct is under review. Disciplinary probation is imposed for a specified period of time, the terminal date of which coincides with the official ending of an academic semester or summer session. Failure to meet the requirement of the probation or further infractions of university policy may result in more severe sanctions, including suspension or expulsion from the university. Individuals on disciplinary probation are not eligible to hold office or membership in any student group or organization; and may not be eligible for certain employment positions or participation in other campus programs.
  • Warning is an official reprimand, which by formal written communication, gives official notice to a student or organization that any subsequent offense against the Student Conduct Regulations will likely result in more serious consequences. In cases involving violations of the Student Conduct Regulations, a copy of the letter is contained in the student’s file in the Division of Student Affairs or, in the case of academic dishonesty, with the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, and will be available as evidence of relevant past behavior to hearing panels;
  • In addition to the above, any one or a combination of the following may be recommended by a student conduct hearing board and/or imposed by the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs or the Dean of Students or, in cases of academic dishonesty, the Provost/Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs:
    1. requirement of participation in community service
    2. restitution, where applicable
    3. loss of campus housing
    4. official notice that any other violation of the Student Conduct Regulations will result in suspension
    5. prohibition from participation in organized groups or activities
    6. substance abuse recovery program offered by counseling services
    7. Judicial Educator online modules

The sanctions listed above are examples only and do not limit the discretion of conduct officers. Students placed on suspension or expulsion are placed in the UNC statewide database, per state requirements.
Sanctions against an organization for hazing shall be those penalties described in the N.C. A&T Student Handbook.

Students who are suspended must apply for re-admission. After proper review of submission of all items specified in the sanction letter, the student will be notified when to contact the Office of Admissions about the process if he/she desires to return to N.C. A&T. Re-admission rules, regulations and decisions are governed by the Office of Admissions; neither the Division of Student Affairs nor the Office of the Dean of Students re-admits students.

Please note: During the suspension period, records will remain flagged and transcripts will be held until students have complied with University imposed sanctions and until the suspension period is over. In addition, suspensions and expulsions are uploaded to the UNC database. A suspension or expulsion precludes matriculation at any UNC constituent institution.

Computer Use Policy Statement

Students of North Carolina A&T State University are authorized to use computer networks, equipment and related resources pursuant to administrative regulations established and promulgated by the Chancellor or his/her designee. All students are expected to follow the computer use policy and related University rules, regulations and procedures for computer usage and work produced on computing equipment, systems, and networks of the university. Students may access these technologies for personal use on a restricted basis.

Please refer to the Computing and Networking Usage Policy and Lab Usage Policy at the www.ncat.edu/~cit/policies/ for permissible use. Any violation of these policies is considered “misconduct” subject to the University’s disciplinary procedures. Sanctions for violation of this policy may include revocation or suspension of computer access privileges in addition to any other sanction permitted under student conduct and academic policies. Violations of state or federal laws may also be referred to the appropriate authorities for criminal or civil action. Students are encouraged to contact the Client Services Department or the Aggie Helpdesk for information regarding any computer usage matters.
