Olympic College, as a state supported institution of higher education, has a mission of providing excellence of instruction, responsiveness to community and individual needs, and open communication in a collegiate atmosphere to citizens of Kitsap and Mason counties. Sharing responsibility for this common mission, students and college personnel are joined in a voluntary college community.
Olympic College students are both citizens and members of the college community. As citizens, students shall enjoy the same freedoms that other citizens enjoy. As members of the college community, they are subject to those responsibilities which accrue to them by virtue of this membership.
Admission to Olympic College carries with it the expectation that students will conduct themselves as responsible members of the college community, that they will comply with established rules and regulations of the college, maintain high standards of honesty and integrity, and respect the rights, privileges, and property of other members of the college community.
Olympic College expects that students will conform to the laws of the greater society and regulations established to assure the orderly conduct of the affairs of the college.
The student is at once a member of the community at large and the college community. As such, the student is subject to the rights, responsibilities, laws, and regulations of each community and accountable to both.
To accomplish these purposes the college is governed by rules, regulations, and procedures designed to safeguard its functions and protect the rights and freedoms of all members of the college community.
