English Department Statement on Disruptive Behavior

Generally, disruptive behavior is any behavior that disturbs the educational process by interfering with the instructor's ability to conduct the class or the ability of students to profit from class attendance and participation. Such behavior may take various forms, and can be dependent upon many factors including class size, subject matter, and the relationship between faculty and students. Students should pay careful attention to any additional information individual instructors provide concerning conduct in the classroom
