Student Code of Conduct - Procedures

Conduct resides with the Vice President for Student Life and Development or designee and is based on the nature of the alleged violations. When there are both conduct and Title IX alleged violations of the Student Code of Conduct, it is likely that they will be addressed through one process. Both Title IX and Student Conduct procedures will follow these steps:

  1. A complaint or other information is received.
  2. An initial inquiry is conducted. Interim measures, including Summary Suspension or Alteration of Privileges may be imposed.
  3. A determination about which procedure will be followed is made. The Complainant and Respondent will be informed.
  4. Interviews are conducted and relevant documentation is obtained.
  5. A decision is made as to whether a violation of the Student Code of Conduct occurred. If so, educational sanctions are assigned.
  6. An appeal may be filed.
