UNIVERSITY OF THE INCARNATE WORD
FASHION MANAGEMENT CODE OF CONDUCT

In the spirit of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word and the mission of this University, the fashion department has accepted as its charger for the 2006-2007 academic year, the pursuit of the value of respect; personal, departmental and universal.
We intend to implement this value by
-Treating each other with courtesy
-Attempting to recognize the divine in each one of us
-Recognizing the dignity of each individual

The Incarnate Word of God teaches us to treat ourselves, our peers, our superiors, and our community with thoughtful consideration. Thoughtfulness in our words and actions can do much to create a positive and successful learning environment.

CLASSROOM AND LAB USE:
Students are to respect the rights of others by treating faculty and classmates with respect. They are to respect the property of others and to use departmental supplies and equipment carefully.

In addition, please
- READ AND KEEP YOUR SYLLABUS
- No food or drink in the sewing or computer labs
- No portable music devices during class without the expressed consent of the teacher
- No sleeping in class
- Students should refrain from any unnecessary disruptive talking during class (faculty encourage an open environment in which everyone has the right to express their own opinions and ideas). However, everyone should be able to do so without having to talk over any of their peers in order to be heard
- No cell phones, pagers, PDA phones in classrooms (turn them off)
- No portable video game systems during class
- No laptops unless they are part of the on-going lesson
- No working on unrelated topics in class
- No walking in front of the teacher while they are teaching
- Only enrolled students may be in the classroom during class
- No late work
- Departmental supplies are for in-class work

My additional policies:

  • No food or drink in the drawing lab.  Leave all drinks, including water at the classroom door.  (It is too easy to ruin your or someone else’s work with grease, crumbs, liquids, or other results of food and drink.)
  • No leaving the classroom during lecture except in the case of emergency.  It is just considered impolite to walk out while someone is lecturing or presenting, plus you are likely to miss vital information.

ACADEMIC HONESTY STATEMENT
The highest standards of academic honesty are expected in the course. Forms of academic dishonesty include, but are not limited to cheating, plagiarism, counterfeit work, falsification of academic records, unauthorized reuse of work, theft, collusion. See the student handbook for definitions and procedures for investigations of claims of academic dishonesty.

Forms of Academic Dishonesty (including but not limited to):
- Cheating on tests, examinations or other class or laboratory work
- Involvement in plagiarism (appropriation of another’s work and the unacknowledged incorporation of that work in one’s own written work offered for credit)

- Unauthorized reuse of work- turning in of the same work to more than one class without the consent of the instructors involved
- Theft- unauthorized use or circulation of tests or answer sheets specifically prepared for a given course and as yet not used or publicly released by the instructor of the course, or theft of completed tests
- Collusion- involvement in collusion (unauthorized collaboration with another person in preparing course work)
- Facilitating Academic Dishonesty – intentionally or knowingly helping or attempting to help another to violate a provision of the code of academic integrity

Course Policies:
Please read the assignments before coming to class. The reading assignments, lecture discussions and projects are intended to complement each other. This course, as with most fashion courses, is extremely rigorous, and if you are current with your reading you will get more out of your class time. Ask questions. Chances are if you are confused, so are others. At times you all will be confused, so maintain your sense of humor.

The syllabus presents the anticipated schedule, however the time schedule is not written in stone. Although I expect to keep to the dates in general, I like to allow some flexibility. The raising of questions during class time is welcomed and encouraged. If I don’t have the answer to your question I will try to obtain it within a reasonable period of time. I hope that each of you will share your experiences and knowledge with the class. If any instructions or assignments are not clear, please ask me about them so that I can clarify any potential problems for all students in the course.
