A faculty member who has concerns regarding either the professional conduct of a student, or deficiencies in the knowledge, skills, dispositions, or abilities of a student may refer the student to the Candidate Admissions, Recruitment, and Retention (CARR) Committee. The Committee chair will notify the student of the referral in writing, and will specify the date, time, and place when the student is required to meet with the committee. The committee will meet within 15 business days of receipt of the referral to provide the student the opportunity to show why the referral should not result in disciplinary or corrective action. The action of the Committee will be based on the severity of the issue(s) raised in the referral and a consideration of the complete record of the student.
The Center for Teaching and Learning adheres to the Washington State competencies for knowledge, skills, and dispositions preservice teacher candidates are to demonstrate.
The Center for Teaching and Learning also adheres to the Central Washington University Student Rights and Responsibilities Policy. The Student Judicial Code (found in the CWU catalog appendices) states that the following are examples of conduct violations.
The possible actions of the committee in increasing levels of severity are as follows.
It is recommended that faculty members begin with the CARR committee. In cases of unprofessional conduct, the committee and the referring faculty member may opt to file a complaint with Student Affairs after consultation with the CARR committee.
The decision of the Committee will be sent to the student and the faculty member making the referral. A copy of the decision will also be placed in the student’s certification file. The student may appeal any decision of the CARR Committee to the Dean of the College of Education and Professional Studies. Further appeal may be made through the Academic process of Student Affairs.
