Disclaimer

The purpose of these policies is to provide guidelines for the users of the Wellness and Recreation Center (WRC) facility and its program areas. Our purpose is to provide growth opportunities and educational experiences, which will enrich the life-long learning process. The facility rules and regulations have been instituted for your health and safety. The use of the WRC facilities is a privilege, and individuals not cooperating with established policies may be asked to leave and or may have their privileges revoked. WRC facilities staff reserves the right to make the final decision on matters and items not covered in this manual.

 


 

Code of Conduct

In order to maintain a high level of service to our users, the WRC Facility Management Team enforces a Code of Conduct that all participants must follow.  The WRC staff appreciates your cooperation in creating a friendly and positive environment for wellness opportunities in all areas of our facility. 

Participation in all programs and services at the WRC is a privilege.  All users who participate in activities or who utilize the facility agree to adhere to the following Code of Conduct: 

Participants are expected to:

  1. Treat the WRC staff and facility with respect.

    As is the case with almost all university wellness and recreation centers, student workers deliver the vast majority of services.  Due to that fact, they are the initial point of contact (and intervention) in all safety and security situations until they are relieved by a full time Wellness and Recreation Center professional or public safety officer. The Georgia College Department of Wellness Programs provides its graduate assistants and undergraduate student workers training in topics such as: blood borne pathogens, conflict resolution, CPR, and the Emergency Action Plan approved for GC’s wellness and recreation programs. 

 

Student Workers are also responsible for insuring that the behavior and conduct of all participants meet community standards for civilians and sportsmanship. Consequently, they are authorized to remove anyone from the facility. Those who refuse to conduct themselves in a civil manner may also be referred to the campus judicial system and/or criminal justice system. The student workers are entrusted with a tremendous responsibility insuring that the WRC and its adjacent recreational facilities operate in a manner that encourages all members of the GC community to participate.

 

  1. Act with character and courtesy while respecting the rights, welfare and dignity of all others in the WRC facility.

 

  1. Refrain from vulgar language and offensive conduct.  Such language that is deemed offensive to others will not be tolerated.

 

  1. Adhere to the rules and policies included in this document and set by the WRC and Georgia College.

 

  1. Act in a safe, responsible manner regarding self and others.

  2. Participants engaging in inappropriate behavior or violating WRC policies may be subject to have their privileges of participation revoked and may face University disciplinary action in accordance to the GC Student Honor Code and Code of Conduct.
