Formally Persona Non Grata (PNG).
Bar status shall be given to person(s) internal or external to the Gallaudet University campus who has exhibited behavior (criminal misconduct) which has been deemed harmful to the University community (property or person) and is no longer welcomed on campus or specified campus locations.
Behavior to be considered harmful to the University community includes but is not limited to actions by an individual that is resultant in offenses against persons and/or property, disruption of University events, programs, processes, violation of University policy and procedures, and continued patterns of abuse and/or infringement of University policy and procedures.
The Department of Public Safety (DPS) has full authority to execute Barring notices to any person (student or non-student) who poses a safety risk and/or threat to the community. Depending on the circumstances of the violation, where doubt exists as to the individual’s status as a student, the bar notice will be executed by DPS and later transferred to Student Affairs to be processed under the University’s Code of Conduct. The barring notice and associated paperwork will be provided to Student Affairs.
The President, Vice President, Provost, Dean of Student Affairs and Dean of the Clerc Center or designates have full authority to execute barring notices.
If an individual designated as barred and who is in violation of the terms of the barring form, is found/reported on campus an officer may arrest the offender for Unlawful Entry, as defined in the District of Columbia Code.
If the barred individual is determined to be a student, the incident paperwork (DPS report, external law enforcement paperwork, statements, photos, etc.) will be forwarded to the appropriate Student Affairs office. The individual who is barred must arrange to make an appointment with the Student Affairs office and Student Affairs will contact DPS of the pending scheduled visit.
For incidents involving students, DPS and Student Affairs Officials will discuss details of the incident, investigation, and subsequent outcomes to ensure full collaboration of the case.
For incidents where Student Affairs has executed a barring decision, DPS will assist where needed to escort the barred individual off-campus.
A written request for appeal to lift an individual’s barring status shall be made to the office which issued the barring notice, and may be made AFTER one full year of the date of the barring notice has been in effect.
Should a non-student with barring status decide to matriculate at the University, Department of Public Safety and Student Affairs Officials shall incorporate that information in the appeal decision.
