Code of Conduct
Santa Ana College's learning centers are places where we want everyone to feel welcome. Our faculty, staff and students have a wide range of experiences and backgrounds, and we all have something we can learn from each other. Whether you are attending an online workshop or participating in face-to-face tutoring, it is important that participants treat each other with respect and courtesy and follow some basic guidelines.
Demonstrate patience and understanding. Especially when using technology for online tutoring, there may be glitches or delays as we familiarize ourselves with new systems and ways of learning. In tutoring sessions and workshops, whether they be online or in-person, there will be varying degrees of understanding. Be patient; ask questions; help each other.
Treat others with kindness and respect. We may have differences of opinions but that does not make it acceptable to bully, harass, insult or make personal attacks. We can agree to disagree in a civil manner.
Choose your words wisely. Don't use profanity, racist, sexually inappropriate, or offensive language. Degrading comments about religion, culture, gender or identity will not be tolerated. We want everyone to feel comfortable and welcome in this learning environment.
Respect staff decisions and requests.
We don't want to be in a position to ask anyone to leave a session. Rules, such as the use of face masks, will be enforced. If these guidelines are not followed, you will be asked to leave/ be removed.
