Required Documentation
* SAWC Code of Conduct
As part of registration, all participants and their legal guardians are required to read the SAWC Code of Conduct, outlining the general standard of conduct expected of SAWC participants during the entirety of SAWC. Failure to read this document will not exempt participants from any disciplinary procedures or sanctions that may result from their actions during SAWC.

SAWC is an educational program foremost. As such, participants are expected to behave responsibly and in manner that does not interfere with the learning process or well-being of other participants. Respect for staff, instructors, guest speakers, and fellow participants is expected. These standards also extend to any online activity on SAWC?s media platforms.
I agree
* SAWC Code of Conduct
Staff will be accessible throughout SAWC; however, staff members do not operate in loco parentis (?in the place of a parent?). Staff will not monitor the presence or behaviour of participants unless a) their absence or behaviour is brought to the attention of staff by a third party or b) they are observed engaging in behaviour or activities prohibited during SAWC. No curfew is imposed during SAWC. Participants are responsible for getting themselves to all SAWC events in a punctual manner. Lateness is strongly discouraged. Participants are expected to attend all scheduled SAWC events, but their attendance will not be monitored. Absent participants will not be deemed missing unless a third party raises cause for concern. If a participant is deemed missing, staff will first attempt to contact the participant directly via his/her cellphone. If the participant cannot be reached, staff will alert the participant?s emergency contact and may alert campus police and residence staff as well.
I agree
* SAWC Code of Conduct
Participants are allowed to leave campus at any time; however, as explained in the Acknowledgement and Assumption of Risk (see below), participants are accountable for their own actions. WESTERN will not be held responsible for any loss, damage, or injury, either to participants or to their property and does not provide medical, accident, or injury insurance for participants? benefit. Staff will not monitor when participants return to campus or attempt to contact them while they are away unless alerted by a third party. Participants are encouraged to be accessible via a cellphone and to communicate with friends, family members, or fellow participants if leaving campus.
I agree
* SAWC Code of Conduct
SAWC is a dry event. Consumption of alcohol is strictly prohibited, regardless of whether a participant is of legal drinking age. Staff members may inspect dorm rooms if they suspect participants of consuming alcohol and will confiscate any alcoholic products. If staff members suspect the presence or use of illegal drugs or weapons or observe aggressive behaviour, campus police will be contacted. All instances of prohibited behaviour will be reported to the SAWC Programmer and may result in a warning or expulsion without refund from SAWC, depending on the severity of the behaviour. In addition to the Assumption of Risk form, participants staying in residence during SAWC are required to sign a damages accountability form. Participants who damage residence property will be held accountable. If no participant accepts responsibility, all participants occupying the room must cover any costs.
I agree
* Damage Waiver
Students who damage SAWC property or residence buildings will be held accountable. If no student accepts responsibility, all students occupying the room or using the equipment must cover the costs. Charges for cleaning up extraordinary waste or mess will be billed to you if you have not cleaned the affected area(s) within a reasonable length of time.

I will pay for damages, loss of equipment, or excessive mess I cause to SAWC and/or residence property. In the event that my room is damaged, but no one accepts blame, I will share costs with the other students in my suite. I acknowledge and understand that Western can seal academic records for offences committed in residence.
I agree
* Acknowledgment and Assumption of Risk
I understand that during my attendance at the Western University (WESTERN) for the above course, Western will not be providing supervision of my activities beyond the scheduled classroom activities and organized evening activities.
I agree
* Acknowledgment and Assumption of Risk
I understand that WESTERN does not provide medical, accident or injury insurance for my benefit. I also understand that in the event any conduct on my part gives rise to any claim against me, WESTERN will not be responsible for my conduct and I may not be covered by any liability insurance held by WESTERN.

In these circumstances, I agree that I will be accountable for my own actions. I will not hold WESTERN responsible for any loss, damage, injury, either to myself or my property and will indemnify WESTERN for any claims which may be made against them as a result of my actions arising out of my participation in the above activity.
I agree
