Member Code of Conduct

Per ASU Policy Number 5-308: The aim of education is the intellectual, personal, social, and ethical development of the individual. The educational process is ideally conducted in an environment that encourages reasoned discourse, intellectual honesty, openness to constructive change, and respect for the rights of all individuals. Self-discipline and a respect for the rights of others in the university community are necessary for the fulfillment of such goals. The Student Code of Conduct is designed to promote this environment at each of the state universities. OLLI at ASU members are subject to the Student Code of Conduct, established by the Arizona Board of Regents (see students.asu.edu/srr/policies), and the University’s Technology Access Policy (see uto.asu.edu/security-policies/policy).

Maintaining a Positive Learning Experience

Our goal at OLLI is to create classroom environments that maximize the learning and enjoyment for all members. Please be respectful of the opinions of others and be sensitive to the desire for all members to have a voice in classroom discussions. If a member becomes overly disruptive or creates a safety concern, he/she may be removed from the class or activity and potentially banned from future OLLI participation.

Online Classroom Etiquette

Please be mindful of the following considerations when participating in online classes:

  • You are encouraged to use your webcam before and after class. During class, you may choose to turn off your camera to improve your internet connection and reduce class disruption.
  • Your microphone may be muted when you enter an online classroom, but feel free to unmute your microphone to talk with the instructor or other members before and after class. During class, please keep your microphone muted to prevent background noise and distractions, but you may unmute your microphone to engage in classroom discussion if the instructor invites participation.
  • You can use the “chat” function within Zoom to submit comments, questions, or thoughts relevant to the class.
  • According to the University Technology Access Policy, “the University limits access to only those individuals and entities that are actively involved in supporting the institution’s mission and goals.” Do not share the class Zoom link or class recordings with individuals who have not enrolled in the class.
