WHAT IS THE DISRUPTION OF INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES?
At Okanagan College (OC), disruption of instructional activities includes student “conduct which interferes with examinations, lectures, seminars, tutorials, group meetings, other related activities, and with students using the study facilities of OC”, as well as conduct that leads to property damage, assault, discrimination, harassment and fraud. Penalties for disruption of instructional activities include a range of sanctions from a warning and/or a failing grade on an assignment, examination or course to suspension from OC.

Students must submit independently written work. Students may not write collaborative assignments with other students unless the instructor approves it in advance. Students who share their work with other students are equally involved in cheating.

...Community Profile Presentation ETH/316 August 6th, 2012 Community Profile Presentation Communities, despite their own unique characteristics, share the same basic needs for social responsibility. Not only the need for the citizens of a community to be socially responsible, but also for the community to fulfill its responsibilities to the citizens as well. Since the late 1950’s and early 1960’s as we transitioned from ensuring human equality around the country, social responsibility has taken over as the next obstacle to conquer. As change is always constant, we must continually seek new opportunities to evolve and improve for the greater good. By analyzing the communities of Charlotte, Brooklyn, Harpers Ferry and McLean, it is apparent that while all require different levels and types of social responsibility, they all have a need and a right for citizens to support the community and for the community to support its citizens. This task is completed by both individual and corporate recycling efforts, monetary donations, volunteerism, and continuing efforts to be environmentally responsible. Citizens must pay taxes to support local municipalities, and government must ensure that money is budgeted and allocated properly so that those services are provided as expected. The essence of community is the feeling of belonging – a feeling that is harvested and grown through socially responsible efforts (Boylan, 2009). In spite of their differences, the communities of......

...Rachel Parson Eth 125 Week 9 Dec. 18, 2012 This is what I had learned about Cultural Diversity in the United Stated to help me better understand and relate to others is people are different and coming from different backgrounds and culture, people are similar even though they are coming from all over the world. When I moved to Portland Maine about a year ago, I was surprised to learn there were many African Refugees that new to the United States; they had moved to moved for better benefits. They are presented in their African clothing, which are brightly colored somewhat sheets that they wrap around their bodies and heads, which is very appealing. When it was hot outside, I could not figure out how they could stand the heat. I then remembered that they are from Africa, and their clothing style is very important to them like it is here in the United States with our catchy styles and brand name products, we are very similar and the same, wanting to look fashionable. Learning that coming from a White Irish racial background, in Ireland there are two groups of Irish people. The Southern Irish people are Protestants and the Northern Ireland (ie Belfast, Donegal, Derry) are Catholics and have been many battles and bloodshed over this religious conflict that still although not in the same intensity as today, however, it is still going on and major issue. Irish people have a tendency to like to drink a large amount and know how to enjoy themselves. They are very kind...

...Discrimination Laura Smalt Eth/125 03/10/13 Winnie Mason Discrimination When I think of discrimination I think of race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexuality, and religion. We will learn what discrimination is, how it is different from prejudice and stereotyping. Also what are the causes of discrimination and how it affects a person or persons? What is discrimination? Discrimination is the denial of opportunities and equal rights to individuals and groups because of prejudice or for other arbitrary. If an employer refuses to hire you as a computer technician because you are a Native American and computer illiterate, this is not discrimination. Now, if an employer refuses to hire you because they feel that you are incompetent and they do not give you the chance to see if you are qualified, this is discrimination (Schaefer, 2012). You have to know and understand discrimination before you can know when discrimination is used. As for myself, I have never seen discrimination used. Would you consider an individual that has a phobia of midgets as discrimination? I am curious to know because my general manager has a phobia of midgets. I believe that it could be considered as discrimination, because she is not giving that person a chance regardless of their height. How do you know when an employer is not hiring you because of discrimination? Even if you ask the reason you are not hired, they can make up a reason to satisfy you or tell you what they think you want to hear.......

...Week 9 Final Assignment ETH/125 October 12, 2013 Dr. Regina Pacheco, Ed.M., PhD. Week 9 Final Assignment My experience in this Culture Diversity course has given me a new insight and thought provoking information that has helped me to relate and understand diversity in a new and different way than I had before. Diversity can be such an interesting topic. When one mentions the word “diversity” several things come to mind. An most often, the first thing that comes to mind is the diverse culture, right here in America. To gain a better understanding of all the different cultures around the World. A person could spend their lifetime traveling around the world, from one culture to another. Why do that? When all one has to do is sit back and take in the daily occurrences and experience everything around them. Right here in America. It is hard to find a country more culturally diverse than our very own, and yet we fail to see it. There are several reasons why one could fail to see all this diversity, whether it be a lack of understanding or just a lack of willingness to understand. For a country that is called “the melting pot” (Schaefer, 2012, p.24), we certainly still have a prevalent degree of prejudice and discrimination. Some would call it a lack of insight and willingness to grow, I prefer to call it ignorance and fear. Fear of differences and change. Diversity is the inclusion of different types of people from different races and culture in a group of......

...Ethical Perspective ETH/316 9-24-13 Ethical Perspective The organization selected is a Private Military Contractor or PMC currently known as Academi, most commonly known as Black Water. With being a PMC the company faces numerous ethical issues in the United States as well as worldwide. There are a lot of people who would view this company as an unethical one. The fact is their ethical code should be taken at face value because they are mercenaries and this is the real world, surely they will conduct themselves in the most ethical manner dictated to them by the person or government paying them but if you are on the short end of the stick you may not believe their actions are ethical if they are being paid to shoot you. Ethics is all about perspective and opinion, more often than not those who shout that everyone should have them are on the short end of the stick in one way or another. Cultural Issues There are numerous cultural issues the company must contend with, to name one that would be obvious we can take a look at the Middle East, more specifically Afghanistan. One of the biggest hell holes on the face of the earth and just one section of the world that should be bombed back in to the ocean. In the local culture it is an insult to wave with the left hand but it is ok to stone a woman to death with rocks, this is not an exaggeration. The culture compared to the culture in the United States is insane, it would be a compliment to describe it as barbaric. As......

...Community Profile Yer Gabul Ethics & Social Responsibility/ETH 316 06/12/2014 Community Profile I am profiling South Los Angeles (formerly known as South Central Los Angeles). South Los Angeles is famous for the 1992 Los Angeles riot. While there are famous historical landmarks in this area, it is mostly inhabited by low-income families. There are small business establishments, but most adults work for local merchants, small factories and assembly lines. Today, there are about 700,000 residents of which 55% are Latinos and 40% African-Americans. In the 1980s, widespread unemployment, poverty and street crime contributed to the rise of street gangs such as the “Crips” and “Bloods”. The neighboring communities often refer to this area as the “ghetto” or the “hood”. Needless to say, this region is heavily infested with drugs and crime. Also, the people in this region have faced issues involving discrimination and segregation. In recent years, however, local political leaders, commercial owners, and residents have joined forces in hopes of revitalizing and removing the association of urban decay and street crimes and violence with which South Los Angeles had become associated. Many non-profit agencies were established by promoting peace, employment assistance, and youth development and education. A monthly town meeting has been established where business owners, local politicians and residents address any issues and explore new opportunities to......

The information that you are about to read in this content is unique and will become familiar within your own religion and race.

Islam believe that we as people should surrender to the higher power, which is God. Islam is God. In the Islamic religion, if you follow God, you would be considered a Muslim.

...Virtue Theory Jermaine M. Cox ETH/316 April 27, 2015 Randy Caffee Virtue Theory Virtue theory, Utilitarianism ethics, Deontological ethics, and morality are all parts of ethical behavior in today’s time and work place. Some people follow them and then you have some whom simply ignore them. Virtue theory is a broad term for theories that emphasizes the role of character and virtue in moral philosophy rather than either doing one’s duty or acting in order to bring about good consequences. In other words idea character traits. Utilitarianism ethics is a normative ethical theory that places the focus of right and wrong solely on the outcomes of choosing one’s action over the other one’s action. Example, it moves beyond the scope of one’s own interests and takes in account the interests of others. Deontological ethics is a normative ethical position that judges the morality of an action based on the actions adherence to a rule of rules. In short term meaning a duty or obligation. Lastly, there is Morality. Morality is the principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior. Even though these terms varies in similarity they are yet very different. As I have explained the differences the similarities are all pertaining to one’s character and actions. For me working in the field that I am employed in I have to practice and abide by most of these principles. One example would be, when we are in the field I am responsible for a lot of......

Eth Discrimination

...discrimination faced by another? How are they different? I think that there is really no differences. In the question above i listed what discrimination can be, and discrimination can be towards everything and anything. I can cause a person to not get a job based on their religion or their race or the color of their skin or just a simple disability. I don't think that there is a difference when it comes to discrimination. Discrimination is discriminating on someone or a group or anything.

...Discrimination and Employment Laws Christine Rodriguez ETH 321 December 7, 2015 Brian La Hargoue Does spoken action have to be targeted or understood as intentional to be considered harassment? More clearly can language have a contrasting impact? While questions like this may seem trivial, everyday workers morale, mental health and feelings are being threated and or affected by harassment. A huge majority of employees both male and female at one point or another are subjected to some form of discrimination and sexual harassment in the workplace. Throughout the centuries sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace have evolved tremendously. The workforce has shifted from what was once a male predominant workforce to a more equal balance of women and men in the work place. In the case of Reeves v. C.H. Robinson World Wide, Inc., we see a classic example of a woman being indirectly sexually harassed by male employees. Mrs. Reeves claims the men in the workplace constantly made verbal vulgar remarks and suggestions of woman that were offensive and disrespectful. In this paper we will examine the elements of this case as well as see the applicable defenses based on the 11th Circuits Courts of Appeals ruling. Over the years, women have become more career minded and oriented; therefore, a vast majority have achieved positions of authority and professionals as their male counterparts. Because of this evolution in the workforce discrimination and sexual......
