Field trip time is considered class time, and as such, the Student Academic Misconduct policy 70 applies.
Alcohol consumption on field trips is not allowed except in a licensed establishment.
Students are expected to keep up with the rest of the class while in the field.
For trips that require travel by foot (e.g. hiking, urban walks, etc.), students should move at the same pace as the instructor.
For trips with multiple stops, students must be prepared to move in and out of vans and buses quickly, with all necessary supplies (e.g backpack, water, notebooks, etc.) in hand in order to keep with the schedule.
Students who face physical challenges in doing so should speak with the instructor ahead of time or at the first sign of difficulty.
Many of the field trips involve exercises conducted along forest trails, waterways, and, in the case of some of the study tours, unfamiliar locales and environments (e.g. basalt fields, deserts, foreign urban environments).
It is the student’s responsibility to read and listen to all instructions given during field study so as to ensure their own safety and the safety of others.
Students experiencing physical difficulty that requires medical attention (e.g. heat stroke, bites, sprains, etc.) must notify the instructor immediately.
