Critical Thinking

The Belmont community is committed to the pursuit of truth and the communication of knowledge. It encourages individuals to develop the ongoing capacity for critical, independent thinking and judgment, both inside and outside the classroom. It affirms the individual's right to teach and to learn, and his/her responsibility to prepare adequately.

As members of the Belmont community, students can expect reasonable actions will be taken to ensure that their experience is free from behaviors that compromise this commitment. Such behaviors include, but are not limited to: disruption or obstruction of teaching, research, convocation, campus life programs and events, residential education, administration, disciplinary proceedings and/or other university activities including public-service functions or authorized non-university activities occurring on university premises.
