The Tattoo Artists Blog is committed to the educational success of its students and is dedicated to the advancement of learning, student retention, and the development of responsible personal and social conduct.

Students at taking classes on this site have the right to various freedoms and protections, such as the right to: freedom from harassment and discrimination, freedom of expression, protection from improper evaluation or disclosure, formation of student organizations, participation in creating student policies and fund-raising activities and access their student records.

Student academic performance will be evaluated on an academic basis (which may include attendance), and the ability to apply skills, and not on a student’s opinions or conduct in matters unrelated to academic standards. The course outlines and information provided will contain and articulate the evaluation standards and grading criteria by which student performance is measured for that particular course.

Each student is responsible for meeting standards of academic performance established for each course in which the student is enrolled.

A student may dispute their academic evaluation, by contesting the results in written format, whether by mail or by electronic correspondence (email), if the student believes that the evaluation standards and grading criteria contained in the course syllabus were not followed by the instructor or were imposed in an arbitrary or ignorant manner. Any student who believes that they have been unfairly graded should refer to the this document and take actions that they deem a best course.

Students have the right to take reasoned exception to the data or views offered in any course of study and to reserve judgment about matters of opinion, while still being responsible for learning the content of any course of study in which they are enrolled.

Student Code of Conduct Policy and Procedures

Each member of the The Tattoo ARtists Blog community must adhere to a code of responsible behavior. This document communicates the expectations that this website has of students, and is intended to educate and guide students to understand their responsibilities. This Code is aligned with the our Non-Discrimination Statement and shall not be administered in a discriminatory manner. Every effort will be made to balance the needs and rights of the individual with the welfare of the community as a whole. This Code applies to all students, recognized organizations, and groups of students. In addition, students who are enrolled in specific educational programs are expected to follow those related academic and professional standards.

Consensual Relationship Statement

Note: The Consensual Relationship Statement is currently under review.

The website seeks to maintain professional, fair, and unbiased relationships between faculty/staff and students. This mission is potentially jeopardized when faculty/staff enter into consensual romantic relationships with their students. Questions of fairness, favoritism and coercion may arise. Therefore, faculty/staff should not engage in consensual romantic relationships with their current students.

In addition, those who supervise or evaluate the work of students must be perceived to be making their decisions fairly and without favoritism. This mission is potentially jeopardized when faculty/staff enter into consensual romantic relationships with their students.

Faculty and staff are cautioned that consensual romantic relationships with their students can prove to be unwise and problematic, and should be avoided. When consensual romantic relationships occur, questions of fairness, favoritism, and coercion arise:

  • Such relationships may undermine the real or perceived integrity of the supervision provided, and the particular trust inherent in the student-faculty relationship.
  • Relationships in which one party is in a position to review the work, or influence the career of the other may provide grounds for complaint when that relationship appears to give undue access or advantage, restricts opportunities, or creates a hostile and unacceptable environment for others.
  • Such relationships may, moreover, be less consensual than the individual whose position confers power believes. The relationship is likely to be perceived in different ways by each of the parties to it, especially in retrospect. While some relationships may begin and remain harmonious, they are susceptible to being characterized as unprofessional and disrespectful to others.

Therefore, faculty/staff should not engage in consensual romantic relationships with their current students.

If a faculty or staff member has a pre-existing consensual romantic/sexual relationship with a student, the student should be discouraged from enrolling in courses taught by the instructor or entering into work situations in which she/he would be supervised by the staff member. If the student does enroll in the course or work for the staff member, the faculty/staff member should remove him/herself from academic or professional decisions concerning the student.

Should a romantic/sexual relationship between a faculty/staff member and their student lead to a sexual harassment charge, the website and its operators are obligated to investigate and resolve the charge in accordance with the complaint procedure in the Non-harassment Policy.
