Gallaudet is fully committed to returning to campus for the 2021-2022
academic year and moving forward safely by following public health
guidance. While Gallaudet University is relying on each member of the
community to respect and adhere to the University COVID-19 directives
including the Gallaudet Together Student Pledge. The University
will have limited tolerance for actions that do not demonstrate commitment
to interpersonal care, personal accountability, and community values during
the COVID-19 pandemic. Not following any COVID-19 directive and/or the
pledge will be taken seriously and considered as violations of the Student
Code of Conduct.
Students who demonstrate a willful pattern of non-compliance, such as
exposing university members to demonstrable health risk, or engage in
behavior that includes additional violations, such as disorderly conduct or
threatening the health and safety of others, may result in additional
charges against them, including the possibility of residence hall
relocation, or an interim suspension from the University or residence
halls, pending the resolution of the charges(s) with Student Accountability
and Restorative Practices (SARP).
The following will provide some examples of behaviors contradictory with
the COVID-19 directives, and the SARP responses to such violations.
Some examples of behaviors include:
Category 1 and some Category 2 incidents may be resolved using a
restorative practices approach, which will be a 1:1 conversation with an
assigned staff member from Health and Wellness Programs, and online
educational modules or courses.
Student Conduct Process
Some Category 2, all Category 3, and repeated violations will be
resolved through the student conduct process. Please refer to (will add
link ASAP) for more information.
Sanctions assigned for Category 2 violations resolved through this process
may include, but are not limited to:
When a student is found responsible for violations under this process, the
SARP office will consider the nature of the violation, the circumstances
surrounding the violation, the student’s prior conduct history (if any),
the community impact of the behavior, and sanctions assigned to previous
findings for similar violations.
Sanctions assigned for Category 3 violations resolved through this process
may include, but are not limited to:
Additionally, more significant sanctions may be assigned when incidents
involve multiple violations of the Student Code of Conduct, in addition to
public health-related expectations.
