Schubert Center Warning Policy

Student-athletes will be given warnings for unacceptable behavior or breaking Schubert Center rules.

Warnings:

Warnings can come from the AAS staff or the Schubert Center monitor.

  • Written Notice: If a Schubert Center monitor observes unacceptable behavior, they do not need to warn the student-athlete verbally. They will simply write the student-athlete's name down and provide it to the AAS staff, who will then notify the student-athlete.
  • Verbal Notice: An AAS staff member can verbally warn a student-athlete.

Second Warning: Once a student-athlete receives a second warning, s/he will be notified via u-mail, and their head coach will be notified via email as well.

Suspension: If a student-athlete receives THREE warnings, s/he will be suspended from the Schubert Center for the remainder of the semester. If the student-athlete has mandatory hour requirements, how the remainder of the semester will be carried out is the coach's discretion.

  • Refusal of a student-athlete to comply with any reasonable departmental service area request or directive can also result in automatic suspension from the Schubert Center. This is determined by the Director of Athletics Academic Services.
  • If the student-athlete is suspended from the Schubert Center, the respective Head Coach will meet with the Associate Athletics Director for Internal Operations and the Director of Athletics Academic Services regarding the incident. The Head Coach will submit a request to appeal the suspension and include evidence of appropriate sanctions. The student-athlete will then be placed on a probationary status.
  • If there is a repeat incident there will be at minimum an infraction of the Student-Athlete Code of Conduct and will be processed according to the sanctions in the Student-Athlete Code of Conduct.
