A trained administrative hearing officer will meet with students to discuss reported violations of policy. Administrative hearings are informal meetings with a formal outcome.
Students who come into conflict with the Code of Conduct will receive advance notice of the alleged policy violations, the opportunity to engage in dialogue with the administrator facilitating the meeting, and will be given a minimum of twenty four (24) hours notice to meet. The outcome of this meeting may result in the student being found not responsible, responsible, or if multiple charges have been applied, the student may be found responsible for some violations and not responsible for others.
For students found responsible, sanctions will be applied. Students will receive a written outcome letter within five (5) business days. This timeframe may be extended for good cause as necessary to ensure the integrity and completeness of the review. Any extension of the timeframe, and the reason for the extension, will be shared with the parties in writing.
Students have the right to appeal decisions determined during a conduct meeting as described in the appeals policy.
Any complaints or appeals relating to a violation of the sexual misconduct, relationship violence, and stalking policy, and other violations of Code of Conduct that are alleged to have occurred as part of the same circumstances as the sexual misconduct, relationship violence, and stalking policy complaint, shall proceed in accordance with the the precedures set forth in the sexual misconduct, relationship violence, and stalking policy.
