BTCSM requires a system of order supportive of the school’s educational process. Primary responsibility for preserving this system of order rests upon the students and staff who make up the community. Students and staff accept responsibility for their own actions and values and recognize that these actions and values reflect upon the whole community. The community's recognition of individual rights is mirrored in the individual’s responsibility for the community’s wellbeing.
Students must conduct themselves with respect for others and thoughtful consideration for the needs of the academic community and society in general.
The educational process depends upon honesty, integrity, and respect for knowledge. Action inconsistent with these principles is unacceptable.
The school honors academic freedom and the open exchange of ideas. Members of the BTCSM community are free to study and consider issues affecting the massage therapy profession. This freedom encompasses thoughtful examination of controversial issues and responsible expression of views.
BTCSM is committed to helping students develop strong personal ethics, moral standards, and constructive worldviews and to fostering broad personal growth, realizing that each individual has both the freedom and obligation to make ethical and moral choices and to accept the responsibilities of his/her actions.
BTCSM maintains a safe, productive learning environment and does not tolerate any violation of student rights.
