Because there are so many of us living in close proximity, Summer Design Week has established some community ground rules that you'll need to know and follow. Most are designed to protect students and to maintain a quality of life conducive to learning. Other rules reflect City, municipal, state, and federal laws.
We do mean what we say regarding community rules, and we take community safety concerns seriously. What is most important is that you respect the rights of others and act with concern and consideration for the well-being of the entire community. We expect you to follow the instructions of staff members, whose job it is, in part, to address inappropriate behavior. Failure to respond to staff members' directives will result in disciplinary action.
Disciplinary action will follow any infraction of Summer Design Week program regulations. Action taken ranges from an oral or written warning to early night-check-in, probation, or dismissal from the program. Any staff member can initiate disciplinary action. An educational assignment may also be part of the disciplinary action. This may include a paper, a letter of apology, community service, or a presentation to other Summer Design Week students. Students who are dismissed because of violations of the Code of Conduct or House Rules will be withdrawn from their courses and will not be entitled to any refund. We are sorry to say this has happened.
Who deals with students suspected of program violations?
Residence staff members attend to most program violations. The head resident and the residential program director, or the Summer Design Week director, will take disciplinary action if a student engages in any of the following behaviors:
- Shows disrespect for the rights, privileges, and safety of others in the community, or engages in any form of harassment or bias-related activity.
- Endangers her or his own health or safety or the health or safety of another student, staff member, or faculty member.
- Damages or removes property.
- Indicates a repeated unwillingness or inability to abide by program regulations, including those that are not specifically delineated in the Summer Design Week Code of Conduct and or House Rules
- Fails to comply with the legitimate order of a University Official.
Students who violate the Summer Design Week Code of Conduct and House Rules may be referred to the Summer Design Week Director. The decision to dismiss a student from the program is made by the Summer Design Week Director. Because participants are high school students and not of majority age, parents may be informed of disciplinary action. The University reserves the right to discontinue the enrollment of any student whose continuance would be detrimental to himself or herself or to others.
Release of images
Photographs and digital images of students participating in Summer Design Week may be used for public information purposes through parental consent on the Permission Form. For the full text of this policy, see the Image Release Statement. If you do not want University of Idaho to reproduce or distribute your student's photographic image, simply cross out the "Images" statement on the Permission Form. However, the image of any student who participates in the Summer Design Week group photo sessions will be included in the Summer Design Week website and yearbook.
Release of information
It is University policy that directory information in a student's records may be released without the student's consent. Directory Information is information that would not generally be considered harmful or an invasion of privacy and the Directory information most relevant to Summer Design Week students includes name, local address, local telephone listing, email address, dates of attendance, and enrollment status. For a full list and more details on the privacy of student records click here.
As a policy, the University of Idaho does not release or sell directory information to any outside entity for commercial, marketing, or solicitation purposes, but students do have the right to suppress their directory information. Suppression means, for example, that verification of enrollment will not be provided to third parties. If your student would like to suppress this information, s/he will need to officially suppress it through the Dean’s Office at the College of Art and Architecture University of Idaho. This office can be contacted via email at email@example.com by phone at (208)885-4409 or via USPS at 875 Perimeter Dr. MS 2461 Moscow ID, 83844.
