Abaven

Education: the best provision for life's journey.

Abaven was formed by Bass Destruction in Winter of Year 3.

Beginning Spring Year 17, Abaven has established a school for wolves from all walks of life to come and learn. Theory has decided to further devote herself and the pack to what she's always cared most deeply about: the education and stewardship of Boreas' youth. After a tumultuous younger life, she is determined to provide all young wolves from any alignment and background a holistic and thorough education so that they can become well-rounded individuals who go on to better serve their packs, improve their skills as loners, or stay on and become professors. Come gather in a neutral place to put your skills to the test!

Construction of the school's facilities at Crystallum Cliffs has officially completed Fall Year 17. Enrollment is open for any interested students and hiring for faculty never stops.

General Rules

1. First and foremost, the school will remain a completely neutral place. Wolves from all packs are welcome and encouraged to come and learn. Pack politics should be put aside when you come to study. An act of war upon the school may bring down the wrath of all packs who send their members and children here to study.
2. Discipline hearings will be conducted if you bring discord into the classroom. Do not fight among your fellow students - we are here to learn.
3. Wolves are not expected to stay within the school for their lifetime. It has been established to welcome all who wish to further their education. If they wish to stay and teach others and they are experienced in their field, they are more than welcome to.
4. Different faculty positions can be created at any time. Anyone is free to approach the headmistress with a compelling idea for what should be added to the curriculum and it will be added if seen fit.
5. Romance between faculty and students is explicitly forbidden. It will only distract you in the classroom. If consensual fraternizing is discovered, the faculty will be demoted and the student suspended for 1 IC season. If they wish to return, they can plead their case in front of the head faculty once their suspension has elapsed.
6. If romantic or otherwise coercion is discovered from a wolf in a position of power, the teacher will be brought before a tribunal. If it is confirmed that the student has indeed been coerced into a relationship or a situation in which they feel uncomfortable, the offender will be challenged to a maim fight and the student will be asked whether they wish to remain or be sent home.
7. All complaints from students should be brought forth to the Dean of Students and Professor Emeritus for discussion.
8. Roundtable meetings amongst faculty should be expected several times an IC year.
