Sexual Misconduct Policy Disciplinary Procedures

Student Conduct Code policies prohibiting sexual misconduct and sexual harassment appear at both the A- and B-levels. Review of possible violations of the Sexual Misconduct Policy is conducted in accordance with disciplinary procedures outlined in the Honor and Student Conduct Codes and Regulations. Interim action may be taken after receipt of a report of possible sexual misconduct and prior to completion of disciplinary proceedings. The Office of the Dean of Students notifies the student-complainant in writing of the outcome of the complaint review.

If the Office of the Dean of Students determines that disciplinary action should be initiated to resolve only B-level infractions, then the violations may be resolved administratively without a hearing. When an incident is resolved administratively without a hearing, an authorized representative of the Office of the Dean of Students determines charges and sanctions.

If the Office of the Dean of Students determines that disciplinary action should be initiated to resolve a possible A-level infraction, a hearing is conducted by the Administrative Board. A judicial board hearing may also be conducted to resolve repeated or accumulating B-level infractions.
