Student Life



Alumni Association

The mission of the Harrison College Alumni Association (HCAA) is to develop mutually beneficial relationships between Harrison College alumni, students, staff and faculty by providing opportunities for service, networking and professional growth in support of the Harrison College mission.

The goals of the HCAA are to:

  1. Support the mission of Harrison College by adding value to the degree, diploma or certificate that has been earned.
  2. Promote continuing education to alumni.
  3. Provide ways for alumni to give back to the college and its current students through programs that encourage service and networking.
  4. Inform alumni concerning Alumni Association business and Harrison College news.
  5. Encourage membership recruitment and active participation in alumni programs.

Harrison College is dedicated to its student’s success while enrolled and its alumni’s success after graduation. The HCAA promotes both by encouraging alumni to stay connected and take advantage of the opportunities to give back in meaningful ways that validate their success as graduates and offer their assistance to current students.

Membership in The Harrison College Alumni Association is free and alumni join by creating a short member profile at http://www.harrisonalumni.org. For more information, alumni are invited to contact alumni@harrison.edu. Harrison College is committed to maintaining a long-term, rewarding relationship with all former students.

Anti-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy

Harrison College believes in providing a learning environment free of discrimination and harassment. That means that employment or enrollment discrimination or harassment based on sex, race, age, disability, religion, national origin, color, sexual orientation, gender or any other protected status of, students or student applicants (collectively students) will not be tolerated.

Policy

  • What is sexual harassment? Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment. If submission to such conduct is used as the basis for employment, enrollment, or student decisions, that is one kind of sexual harassment. Another type of sexual harassment occurs, if such conduct is sufficiently pervasive or severe to:
    1. Unreasonably interfere with a student’s education at a Harrison College institution or a student’s admission to a Harrison College institution; or
    2. Create an intimidating, hostile or offensive learning environment for students.
  • It is possible for students to be sexually harassed by staff and faculty as well as other students or non-employees of the College. College faculty and staff are prohibited from harassing students, regardless of whether the incidents occur on Harrison College premises or occur during business hours.
    Some examples of sexual harassment include:
    1. Sexual harassment can involve males or females being harassed by members of either sex.
    2. Promising a student preferential treatment or a reward, if the student complies with a sexually-oriented request.
    3. Threatening to retaliate against a student if the student refuses to comply with a sexually-oriented request.
    4. Denying a student an education-related opportunity if the student refuses to comply with a sexually-oriented request.
    5. Engaging in sexually-suggestive physical contact or touching another student in a way that is unwelcome.
    6. Displaying, storing or transmitting pornographic or sexually-oriented materials using Harrison College equipment or facilities.
    7. Engaging in indecent exposure.
    8. Verbally abusing an individual with sexually-explicit or graphic language.
    9. Telling sexually-oriented or offensive jokes.
    10. Using sexually-degrading words to describe an individual.
  • Employees of the College are prohibited from:
    1. Pursuing a social relationship with any student that involves any interaction outside the normal scope of the educational services Harrison College provides to the student.
    2. Pursuing a romantic relationship with any student.
    3. Dating any student.
    4. Cohabiting with any student, unless the employee is related by marriage or blood to the student.
  • What are other forms of harassment? Harassment may take other forms such as harassment that is based on a person’s race, religion, ethnicity, gender or other legally protected characteristic.
    As with sexual harassment, these forms of harassment are also not tolerated by the College. Harassment of this nature also occurs when any conduct, whether verbal, visual or physical, relating to or involving a person’s race, age, disability, religion, national origin, gender or any other protected status is sufficiently pervasive or severe to:
    1. Unreasonably interfere with a student’s admission to a Harrison College institution, or
    2. Create an intimidating, hostile or offensive learning environment for students.
  • REPORTING
    If any student who, in good faith, has reason to believe that he or she has been subjected to a discriminatory learning or business environment, unwelcome sexual advances or other discriminatory or harassing practices or conduct from College faculty and staff, another student or non-employee, the student should promptly report the incident to the campus president at the Harrison College location where the incident occurred or the Vice President Legal & Compliance, (317-447-6000) or the student may call EthicsPoint - a confidential, toll-free hotline - at 1-866-593-6967, 24 hours a day, seven (7) days a week or the student may file his/her complaint online using EthicsPoint’s Web-based reporting template at: http://www.harrisonstudent.ethicspoint.com. The Vice President Legal & Compliance is designated as the College’s Title IX coordinator for handling sexual harassment complaints and overseeing compliance efforts respecting Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.
    The student or customer should promptly report the matter directly to the Vice President Legal & Compliance or through Ethics Point, if:
    1. The Harrison College campus president is the alleged harasser.
    2. Reporting such conduct to any Harrison College manager onsite is otherwise not appropriate.
    3. The student is uncomfortable for any reason in reporting the incident to the Harrison College campus president.
    4. The student is not satisfied after reporting the incident to the Harrison College campus president or other manager.
  • SUPERVISORS
    All supervisors and managers must immediately report all complaints and reports about student harassment and/or discrimination to the human resources department at administration, who will then consult with the Vice President Legal & Compliance.
  • INVESTIGATION
    Reports and/or complaints of a discriminatory learning environment for students will be promptly investigated.
    Reasonable measures will be undertaken to preserve the confidentiality of information that is reported during the investigation and to protect persons who report information from retaliation.
  • CORRECTIVE MEASURES
    If warranted following the outcome of the investigation, corrective measures, including, but not limited to, counseling, reprimand, suspension or discharge will be taken against all individuals who are determined to have engaged in any prohibited harassment or discrimination. Appropriate documentation of the matter will also be made.

Career Services

Harrison College’s Career Services office provides resources to students and alumni to assist them with their personal growth and professional development. Career Services supports students in becoming productive employees and lifelong learners and creates effective partnerships in the communities and industries served.

Career Services Vision is to be a leader in providing career services that will empower students and alumni to be confident in their career searches and to be successful in seeking opportunities throughout life.

Harrison College’s Career Services office works to connect students with prospective employers through a variety of resources. Harrison College’s Career Services professionals also provide students with a range of support services, including career exploration, resume and cover-letter writing and review, and locating interviewing resources and occupational resource materials. Additional information about the career services office can be found on the Library website at http://harrison.libguides.com/careerservices.

Lifetime employment assistance is available to all Harrison College graduates. However, such employment assistance can be rendered in a meaningful manner only when cooperation exists between the graduate and Harrison College’s Career Services office. Therefore, the student must:

  1. Demonstrate personal integrity, adult sense of responsibility and high ethical standards. Harrison College assists our graduates in finding opportunities with organizations and leaders in the professions for which we prepare students. Harrison College will not violate employers’ trust in and respect for our college by recommending a student who does not demonstrate these personal qualifications.
  2. Make independent attempts to secure employment and not to rely solely on the Career Services office to secure a position. The Career Services office offers advice and meaningful guidance. Employment after graduation cannot be guaranteed. Securing employment is the graduate’s responsibility.
  3. Provide true and accurate background information in the development of a resume and preparation for interviewing.
  4. Keep the Career Services office advised of any changes in employment or contact information for at least one year following graduation. Graduate employment data is used to benchmark successes each year with our graduates and also to identify opportunities to improve our programs or better educate our community employers.
  5. Graduates who secure employment through their own efforts are expected to notify the Career Services office so the records used to verify Harrison College graduate employment statistics to our accrediting agency can be updated.

Students with prior misdemeanor or felony convictions may experience limitations and/or denial of externships, employment opportunities and professional licensure. In addition, students are advised that in order to comply with clinical requirements of various affiliating agencies, particularly those regulating Allied Health programs and the Nursing program, or as required by other employment inquiries, submission to criminal background checks and/or drug screening may be required.

Copyright Compliance

Copyright protection in the U.S. is granted to any original owner of a “fixed” format. Once an idea, thought or work is expressed in a fixed format, the person that created the fixed form usually gains copyright ownership. Copyright law is rooted in the Federal Copyright Act of 1976 and its mandated regulations, which provide economic protection for the creator/owner of tangible and fixed forms of ideas and expression. Copyright law does not protect ideas, mechanisms or processes of producing tangible and fixed forms of ideas. Full compliance with Copyright law is required when utilizing sources, materials, videos, audio clips, images and documents for lectures, projects, papers, websites, blogs, presentations, emails and even tweets.

Copyright Infringement is the act of violating the copyright owner’s rights. Infringement can occur when a work is used improperly and/or work is reproduced without permission. Anyone involved in infringement can be responsible if a claim is made by the copyright owner. Any copyright infringement, including without limitation, distribution of copyrighted material through unauthorized peer-to-peer digital file sharing, in connection with a student’s enrollment in a program of study at the College or conducted by students through the use of the College’s equipment or information systems is prohibited and violates both the Conduct section of the student handbook and the law. Students who engage in copyright infringement will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including expulsion.

Students can make copies of written materials and print out electronic documents for their own personal use. For example, a copy of a portion of a copyright-protected work, such as a copy of an article, chapter of a book or a page from a newspaper, may be made without permission. However, copying all the assignments from a book recommended for purchase by the instructor, making multiple copies of articles or book chapters for distribution to classmates or copying material from consumable workbooks, all require permission. Copies of copyrighted works can NEVER be made for the purpose of distribution to other people or for commercial purposes.

Disclosures

The Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), as amended by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), includes many disclosure and reporting requirements for College’s like Harrison College which participate in Title IV programs. A disclosure requirement is information that the College is required to distribute or make available to students (and sometimes employees).

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

General Policy

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (the Act) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.

The Act gives parents certain rights with respect to their children’s education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high-school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are called “eligible students.”

Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student’s education records maintained by the school. Schools are not required to provide copies of records unless, for reasons such as great distance, it is impossible for parents or eligible students to review the records. Schools may charge a fee for copies.

Parents or eligible students have the right to request that a school correct records that they believe to be inaccurate or misleading. If the school decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student then has the right to a formal hearing. After the hearing, if the school still decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student has the right to place a statement with the record setting forth his or her view about the contested information. Parents or eligible students also may file a formal compliant with the Family Policy Compliance Office, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, S.W., Washington, DC 20202-4605, concerning a school’s alleged failure to comply with FERPA.

Educational Records

Education records are records maintained by the school that contain information that directly relates to the student. Examples are the student’s academic, financial aid and career services files. Education records may be maintained in electronic format. The only persons authorized to access education records are those with a legitimate administrative or academic interest. Schools are not generally required by FERPA to provide an eligible student with access to academic calendars, course syllabi or general notices such as announcements of specific events or extra-curricular activities. That type of information is not generally directly related to an individual student and, therefore, does not meet the definition of an education record.

Review of Records

It is the policy of Harrison College to periodically review education records to insure that they do not contain information which is misleading, inaccurate or otherwise inappropriate. Harrison College may destroy records that it determines, in its sole discretion, are no longer useful or pertinent to students’ circumstances and which Harrison College is not legally required to maintain.

Directory Information

Directory Information means information contained in an education record of the student that would generally not be considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed.

Directory Information includes, but is not limited to, a student’s name, address(es), telephone number(s), date and place of birth, program in which enrolled, extracurricular activities, credentials, awards and recognition (i.e., honors) received, last school attended, dates of attendance (i.e. enrollment periods, not daily attendance records) and student or user ID number (other than social security number), but only if the identifier cannot be used to gain access to education records except when used in conjunction with one or more factors that authenticate the user’s identity that are known or possessed only by the authorized user.

Directory Information may be unconditionally released without a student’s consent, unless a student has specifically requested, in writing, that the information not be released.

Release Without Student Consent

The school may release a student’s education records without written consent of the student to:

  1. Other school officials who have a legitimate educational interest.
  2. Other schools where the student has applied for admission.
  3. Authorized representatives of the U.S. Department of Education, state and/or local education authorities, the Comptroller General of the United States or the Attorney General of the United States.
  4. Providers of financial aid (and services in connection therewith) for which the student has applied or received, including, without limitation, lenders, guaranty agencies, Veterans Administration, state vocational rehabilitation agencies and collection agencies.
  5. State and local authorities where required.
  6. Accrediting agencies.
  7. A parent (whether a maternal parent, guardian or an individual acting as a parent in the absence of a parent or guardian) of a student who is a dependent of the parent for purposes of the Internal Revenue Code (the school is not required, however, to release such records).
  8. Any court in which the student or a parent of the student initiates a legal action against the school, but only with respect to the students education records that are necessary for the school to defend itself.
  9. Any court in which the school initiates a legal action against the student or a parent of the student, but only with respect to the student’s education records that are relevant for the school to prosecute the legal action.
  10. Any person pursuant to and in compliance with a judicial order or subpoena provided that a reasonable attempt is made to notify the student prior to compliance (unless the order or subpoena specifies that the student must not be notified).
  11. Appropriate persons or agencies in the event of a health or safety emergency.
  12. Organizations conducting studies to develop, validate and administer predictive tests, to administer student aid programs or to improve instruction.
  13. The public, if the school determines in its discretion, that the student as an alleged perpetrator has committed a Crime of Violence or a Non-forcible Sex Offense in violation of the Conduct section of the school catalog, but only the following information from the students education records: the students name, the violation committed and any sanction imposed by the school on the student. A crime of violence means an act that would, if proven, constitute any of the following offenses or offenses to commit the following offenses: arson; assault offenses; burglary; criminal homicide, whether manslaughter by negligence, murder or non-negligent manslaughter; the destruction, damage or vandalism of property; kidnapping or abduction; robbery; or forcible sex offense. A non-forcible sex offense means an act that would, if proven, constitute statutory rape or incest.
  14. The purported victim regardless of whether the school determines that the student, as an alleged perpetrator, committed a Crime of Violence or Non-forcible Sex Offense in violation of the Conduct section of the school catalog, but only the following information from the students education records: the students name, the violation committed and any sanction imposed by the school on the student.
  15. The student or the student’s parents if the student is less than 18 years old.
  16. A parent of the student regarding the students violation of any federal, state or local law or any rule or policy of the school concerning the use or possession of alcohol or a controlled substance, if the student is under the age of 21 and the school has determined that the student has violated the Student Code of Conduct section of the school catalog with respect to that use or possession.
  17. The United States Attorney General (or designee not lower than an Assistant Attorney General) pursuant to an ex parte court order concerning investigations or prosecutions of an offense listed in 18 U.S.C. 2332b(g)(5)(B) or an act of domestic or international terrorism as defined in 18 U.S.C. 2331.
  18. The public, if the disclosure concerns an individual required to register under section 170101 of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, 42 U.S.C. 14071 and the information was provided to the school under 42 U.S.C. 14071 and applicable federal guidelines.

In addition, the following records are exempt from the Act:

  1. The financial records of the student’s parents.
  2. Information about other students.
  3. Confidential letters of recommendations to which the student has waived his or her right to inspect.
  4. Employment records of students who are employed by Harrison College.
  5. Records created or received after an individual is no longer a student and which do not directly relate to the individual’s attendance as a student at Harrison College.
  6. Grades on peer-graded papers not collected and recorded by an instructor.
  7. Records about students made and only accessible to faculty and administrative personnel.

Harrison College has adopted a detailed Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act policy which is available to an eligible student upon request. Students may also review the FERPA regulations, frequently asked questions, significant opinions of the U.S. Department of Education’s Family Policy Compliance Office (FPCO) and other information regarding FERPA at the following website:

Grievance Procedure

While the College does not provide residences or living accommodations for its students, the College is committed to the development of programs to both raise awareness of, and reduce and prevent incidences of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. Furthermore, the College is committed to providing students and employees written explanation of the student’s or employee’s rights and options when a student or employee reports to the College that the student or employee has been a victim of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking, regardless of whether the offense occurred on or off a College campus.

Annual Security Report

Students with Self-Disclosed Disabilities

As part of its anti-discrimination, anti-harassment policy, all divisions and campuses of Harrison College will provide reasonable accommodations to qualified individuals with a disability participating in the school’s programs.

Procedure

  1. Self-Identification
    An applicant or student (herein collectively referred to as “student”) may self-identify or voluntarily disclose information that he or she has a disability. If a student self-identifies or voluntarily discloses that he or she has a disability, the student may also ask that he or she be provided a reasonable accommodation. For information about requesting an accommodation, the student should contact their student affairs specialist.
  2. Documentation on Accommodation Request
    Students have the responsibility to identify the particular disability at issue and to request an accommodation. All requests for an accommodation are determined on a case-by-case basis. A student who self-identifies or discloses information that he or she has a disability and requests an accommodation must provide supporting documentation and identify the appropriate accommodation being requested. The student affairs specialist will provide guidelines for documenting a disability upon request.
  3. Identifying a Reasonable Accommodation
    Once a student self-identifies or voluntarily discloses that he or she has a disability, asks to be accommodated and provides the required documentation, the student affairs specialist directs the accommodation request to the Corporate Director of Enrollment Training and Compliance. A reasonable effort will be made to identify and try to reasonably accommodate the student.
