Training Overview

Changing your suspension and expulsion policy for 2021–22? It’s time to adapt student dismissal protocols to the current state of COVID-19 and the new presidential administration.

Thanks to vaccinations and enhanced precautions, America’s colleges and universities hope for a return to normalcy in the autumn of 2021. Despite this aspiration, your suspension, dismissal, and expulsion policies and procedures cannot revert to those of 2019. You need to plan now for the next academic year.

You must incorporate the threat of ongoing COVID-19 outbreaks, student demand for more online learning, and an increase in mental-health issues caused by the pandemic. At the same time, President Biden and a reinvigorated U.S. Department of Education are taking steps to increase student rights and protections while limiting the ability of higher education institutions to dismiss students without due process.

  • May you dismiss students who refuse vaccines and testing?
  • May you discipline students who violate social gathering limitations?
  • Should you delay academic dismissals if grades suffer due to COVID-19?
  • Has online learning fostered an increase in academic dishonesty?
  • May you dismiss students for legal cannabis use?
