The Survival Guide is intended to explain various written and unwritten practices and tribal customs within the Program. It is presented as an aid to both faculty and students, so that there will be less time spent asking what is expected and how things are done. It is also intended to make clear at the outset what is expected so that misunderstandings are less likely to occur. Sections deal with topics ranging from general philosophy of the Program to specific and detailed requirements and procedures for particular practices.
Students in particular should initially read the entire document, especially at the outset of their career in the Program. Thereafter, reference to individual sections as the need arises should suffice.
REMEMBER IN THE FINAL ANALYSIS, IT IS THE STUDENT'S RESPONSIBILITY TO BE AWARE OF ALL RULES AND REGULATIONS GOVERNING THE PROGRAM. THE PROGRAM DIRECTOR AND PROGRAM ASSISTANT CAN HELP WITH CLARIFICATION AND INTERPRETATION BUT CANNOT BE EXPECTED TO CONTINUOUSLY INFORM STUDENTS OF WHAT IS THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO KNOW.
