This academic/archaeological trip is partially operated and run by Truett McConnell University (in partnership with the Qumran Cave Project) and therefore functions as an outdoor classroom where the same conduct rules apply as on campus. This is to ensure that all project participants have the best possible experience. This Code of Conduct includes, but is not limited to the following:
All trip participants must be courteous and respectful of all people in our party and those with whom our party interacts.
We recognize that people from various backgrounds and views are participating in this trip. We encourage critical thinking and exchange of ideas with others who may differ. While all people are entitled to their own views, we must show mutual respect in regard to the material taught on this trip.
All trip participants play a part in the smooth running of the trip including assisting with various duties at the archaeological site, looking out for the needs of others, responding punctually to the trip itinerary, etc.
Sexual harassment of any kind is not tolerated (this includes any advances towards another person, inappropriate sexual language, media, etc.).
Care must be taken when handling anyone else’s personal property (gear, bags, etc.).
Stealing is prohibited.
Dress modestly (due to the weather and the nature of this outdoor event, shorts and tank tops, etc. are acceptable. However, modesty applies.)
Modesty applies to one’s speech towards another person or in the presence of another person. Inappropriate language such as cursing, gossip, coarse jesting, etc. is prohibited.
No alcohol, drugs, tobacco products or fire arms/weapons are permitted.
