  4. Noise (or disorderly conduct) violations in the community:  Excessive noise and disorderly conduct complaints are best addressed by reporting them to the appropriate law enforcement (LE) agency for immediate action (ex., San Marcos Police within city limits, Hays County Sherriff’s Office outside of city limits but within Hays County).  The LE may determine the party or parties responsible and may refer them to the Dean of Students.
     
  5. Behavior Assessment Team (BAT):  Conduct which has the potential for escalating to the point of disrupting university functions or the safety and well-being of individuals may be reported to the BAT via the Dean of Students Office at 512-245-2124 or the University Police Department at 512-245-2805.  If there is an immediate threat, the matter should be reported to law enforcement immediately (use of 9-1-1 is recommended).
     
  6. General classroom conduct concerns:  Faculty are empowered to address the conduct of individuals during class periods to facilitate the teaching-learning dynamic as the faculty member deems most appropriate.  Specific rights and responsibilities are outlined in Academic Affairs Policy and Procedure Statement (AAPPS) 4.02, available at:  http://www.provost.txstate.edu/pps.html.  Faculty may contact the Dean of Students Office to report incidents needing attention beyond that which can be offered by the faculty member; if a student does not respond to a faculty member’s efforts to maintain decorum and an environment conducive to learning for the classroom; or if the faculty member suspends a student from the class in accordance with AAPPS 4.02.  Immediate safety concerns and threats should be reported immediately to the University Police Department at 512-245-2805 or via 9-1-1.
