Aquinas College Integrity Statement

In this spirit, we strive to create an environment in which integrity is prized and practiced. We expect all community members to uphold these values through honesty, fairness, and respect for others.

Once you have fully registered and requested accommodations, you will receive an official accommodation letter. Please present this letter to me at the start of the term and/or two weeks prior to the accommodation need (test, project, etc.) so that the college can adequately plan for your accommodations and best meet your needs. Requests received after this time frame will be honored whenever possible.

Title IX
Sexual Discrimination
Aquinas College is committed to providing a safe learning environment for all students that is free of all forms of discrimination and sexual harassment, including sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. If you (or someone you know) has experienced or experiences any of these incidents, please know that you are not alone. Resources and support are available. You can learn more at: https://www.aquinas.edu/sexual-assault-title-ix Please be aware that all Aquinas College faculty members are “responsible employees”, which means that if you tell me about a situation involving sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking, I must share that information with the Title IX Coordinator, Dr. Lisa Hetzel. Although I have to make that notification, you will still have options about how your case will be handled including whether or not you wish to pursue a formal complaint. Our goal is to make you aware of the range of options available to you and have access to the resources you need. If you wish to speak to someone confidentially (will not notify the Title IX Coordinator), you can contact the following offices/individuals:

  1. Student-athletes should take into consideration the practice and game schedules when scheduling classes.
  2. Coaches will make every attempt to work with the class schedules in regards to practices.
  3. Student-athletes are not to miss class for any practice, fund-raiser, scrimmage, and picture taking session or any other related activities.
  4. If coaches are aware of his/her student-athletes missing class unnecessarily, they should be disciplined until the class attendance policy is adhered to.
  5. In regard to scheduled competitions, the student can ask the individual professors in advance for permission to attend the game/competition. However, if the professor cannot or will not make special arrangements, the student-athlete is advised to attend the class or be ready to accept the consequences.
  6. Remember when there is an academic-athletic conflict the academic take priority. This is one reason that we carry more than the minimum number of players on each squad.
  7. There are no REGULAR SEASON competitions scheduled during the exam weeks.
  8. Post season dates are set by regional and national offices years in advance and Aquinas has no control over these.
  9. Quad Classes - It is recommended that you not take a quad course during your season. Attendance is mandatory.
