Development of a directory of student disciplinary actions in Crescent University
Abstract The project highlights the importance of schools and institution in identifying offence and crime by students within the campus and off and then a design of systems that accomplish the tasks specific to the needs of their end-users. Data transfer, data integration, system customization, and confidentiality issues are discussed. One of the most significant shortcomings in the delivery of justice is the delay that is encountered by most institution which increases the cost of litigation in both time and increase to crime and offence committed by students. Hence the new system designed will aid the institution offence and crime records and thereby facilitate timely delivery of judgment by the panel. The university discipline system recognizes that not all violations of local, State, and Federal law affect the interests of the university community and the discipline system accepts jurisdiction in those instances where the university community’s interest is substantially affected, regardless of whether the conduct in question occurs on or off campus. The rules governing conduct may come under the jurisdiction of the legal system, but are typically and necessarily broader in coverage than statutes and ordinances. The university discipline system is based on the most recent edition of the Student Code. Action taken by university disciplinary committees does not abrogate the right of any dean or director to deny admission or readmission on the basis of scholarship. The software was implemented using Visual Basic 6.0 and Access database. .
