See the SPCC section. During the period of time of any disciplinary action (except dismissal), the student may be directed to comply with the specific requirements intended to rehabilitate or monitor the student. These requirements may include counseling, medical treatment, preparing scheduled reports, or any other requirement intended to rehabilitate the student and/or to ensure the student is able to continue with the student’s education without further monitoring. Records of dismissal, suspension, or leave of absences and the date of each determination shall be placed in the student’s permanent records. The SPCC shall have nonexclusive authority to evaluate all alleged student violations of misconduct, whether legal, moral, professional, or ethical. Exceptions to this authority include, but are not limited to, the following: • Nothing shall limit the right of the Silverman College of Pharmacy to immediately remove a student from the college who has been accused of a violent act or threat or any act that constitutes a violation of state, local, or federal criminal law subject to further proceedings consistent with these rules. A student who has been removed from the college shall not return until given permission to do so by the dean. • Nothing shall prevent the dean from taking action deemed necessary, including removing a matter from the committee’s consideration, whenever, in the dean’s judgment, such action may prevent harm to health, safety, and welfare of any individual; to school property; or to the integrity of the educational process. • Nothing shall limit the right of the college or any of its representatives or students to file a report with any law enforcement or civil agency.
