Student Handbook: Other University Policies
CHILD CARE (ON CAMPUS)
Because of liability risks and insurance limitations, facilitating on-campus childcare is not permitted.
DISSENT AND DISRUPTION
In certain circumstances, when a student's presence or conduct on campus may cause a disruption of the educational process or be considered a threat to individuals, to the community or to University property, the University reserves the right to restrict a student's access to campus. Students have a right to ask questions, seek information and assistance or to express dissent, but this right must be exercised in a manner consistent with the Biola Community Standards. It must not be practiced in a way that violates the rights of others and the educational mission of the University.
To ensure that the integrity of Biola University is maintained, and that our fundraising efforts are well coordinated, it is important that all fundraising activities be approved by the University Advancement department and all other responsible parties before any contact is made with potential donors. A Fundraising Information Packet and Pre-Proposal/Approval Form are available from Constituency Records; to obtain a packet or further information, please contact them at ext. 5364.
Any educational research/survey investigator requesting the participation of students, either on and/or off-campus, must request permission from the Office of the Dean of Student Development, ext. 4871. All research surveys must be approved by the Protection of Human Rights in Research Committee (PHRRC) prior to requesting permission from the Student Development office. Written protocols for the PHRRC are available from the Rosemead School of Psychology, Receptionist Desk.
Research assigned by faculty as part of an undergraduate class curriculum does not require this approval; the faculty in charge is responsible and expected to exercise wise discretion and awareness of such protocols.
All unmarried full-time enrolled freshmen and sophomores (under 20 years of age by the first day of Fall Classes) who are not living with parents or a legal guardian must live on campus. The Biola Housing Incoming Student Application and the Request to Commute are available on My.Biola.Edu->Student Tab->MyHousing. Revised March 2012
RIGHT OF ENTRY
University personnel can enter rooms in an emergency, for health and safety inspections, to enforce rules and regulations, and to show partial vacancies to prospective students.
TECHNOLOGY: NETWORK USAGE POLICY
Policies are in place regarding the use of Biola's wired and wireless networks, as well as the Internet for transfer of information. This includes but is not limited to e-mail, file transfer, or use of applications which utilize the networks. In the case where electronic information is carried across other networks (i.e., outside Biola), users are advised that acceptable use policies of those networks also apply and may further limit use.
The Technology & Network Usage Policy is maintained by the Information Services department and is available on their website.
The use of a motor vehicle at Biola University must be considered a privilege with accompanying responsibilities. The safety of our campus community and the University‘s relationship with the La Mirada community may be improved or hampered by the thoughtfulness or lack of it displayed by those who drive.
Policies regarding possession, operation, and parking of vehicles (motor and other) can be found at the Campus Safety site.
