Any member of the University community (administration, faculty, staff, and
students) may make a formal complaint against any student(s) for alleged
violations of the Student Code of Conduct. All allegations of violations
should be prepared in writing or signed video and directed to the
Coordinator of Student Accountability*; however, the Coordinator of Student
Accountability will not accept anonymous complaints.
Complaints alleging Title IX sexual harassment will be referred to and
investigated by the Title IX Coordinator or designee, and the procedures
for handling such complaints can be found
. Persons should refer to appropriate materials available online or in
print for procedures for the resolution of such complaints.
Those requesting charges are normally expected to serve as the complainant,
and to present relevant information in disciplinary conferences and/or
hearings. In addition, any allegation of violations should be submitted as
soon as possible after the event takes place. The Coordinator of Student
Accountability will evaluate all the information, which may include
interviews with involved parties and the collection of relevant information
as the Coordinator of Student Accountability deems necessary, to determine
if the reported allegation(s) has merit and/or if they can be disposed of
administratively by conciliation, restorative practices , mediation, or
mutual consent of the parties involved on a basis acceptable to the
Coordinator of Student Accountability. If the charges are not admitted
and/or cannot be disposed of by mutual consent, the Coordinator of Student
Accountability may later serve in the same manner as a non-voting member of
the Student Conduct Board in a hearing.
With the exception of sexual misconduct allegations, the Coordinator of
Student Accountability may decide not to proceed with complaints resulting
from incidents that occurred at a time too distant from the date of the
filing of charges, or when information or testimony is too vague.
Complaints generally should be made within 30 business days after discovery
of the alleged violation and/or identification of the alleged violator.
A student charged for alleged violation(s) of the Student Code of Conduct
will be entitled to a disciplinary conference or disciplinary hearing. The
Coordinator of Student Accountability will make a determination of whether
a disciplinary conference or disciplinary hearing will be held, based on
the range of sanctions that may be issued for the particular violation. The
Coordinator of Student Accountability will serve as the hearing officer for
the disciplinary conference or as a member of the Student Conduct Board at
all disciplinary hearings. In rare occasions, the Director of SARP will
assume all roles and responsibilities in the disciplinary process if the
Coordinator of Student Accountability is unable to serve in that capacity
and the case cannot be rescheduled within a reasonable time.
Formal rules of process, procedures, and/or technical rules of evidence,
such as are applied in criminal and civil court, are not used in the
Student Conduct disciplinary proceedings.
* Anywhere this procedure indicates “Coordinator of Student
Accountability,” the Director of Student Accountability and Restorative
Practices may assume this role.
