- The student conduct process may act on any pending violation of the Code of Conduct or any other University policy or regulation by:
- Any student, if the pending violation occurred in the current term or the previous two terms or any break periods between the conclusion of one term and start of the next term;
- A student organization;
- A student who is suspended or separated from the University; or
- A student enrolled in the English Language Institute or any other program at the University that does not require admission to the University or traditional class registration. Disciplinary procedures established within such programs and specifically tailored for the needs of that student population may be used in concert with or as an alternative to the student conduct process as appropriate. An exception to this standard is any incident involving sexual misconduct or discrimination which must be reported to the Office of Equity and Inclusion, the Title IX coordinator or a deputy Title IX Coordinator.
- The student conduct process may act on any pending violation of the Code of Conduct for conduct which occurs in any location and:
- while a student or student organization is participating in a University-related activity, including events sponsored by a student organization; or
- the student’s or student organization’s conduct is egregiously offensive to the University’s mission; or
- the student’s or student organization’s continued presence on campus poses a serious threat to persons or property, regardless of where the activity occurred.
- The undergraduate resolution process (Section VII.A) shall have jurisdiction over:
- all students enrolled in an undergraduate program, a non-degree program or programs that do not require admission to the University or traditional class registration;
- all student organizations; and
- all students enrolled in the Graduate College whose reported incident does not involve the Academic Honesty Policy.
- The graduate resolution process (Section VII.B) shall have jurisdiction over all students enrolled in the Graduate College whose reported incident involves the Academic Honesty Policy.
- In accordance with the Non-Discrimination, Sexual Misconduct and Title IX Policy the undergraduate student conduct process shall have jurisdiction over sanctioning and appeals associated with cases involving these policies if the respondent in the case is a student.
- Community Standards & Conflict Resolution has the authority to determine whether a submitted report should more properly be handled by another University office, department or forum, and in such instance may refer the report to that office, department, or forum. If handled by Community Standards & Conflict Resolution, the method of resolution may be through formal adjudication, alternative dispute resolution or restorative practices.
- The University retains absolute discretion to vest jurisdiction for any student or any infraction not specifically described within this Student Guide to University Policies or any other University policy, procedure or agreement.
Community Standards & Conflict Resolution is part of the Division of Student Life, which advances equity and inclusion, deepens student learning and drives holistic development through education, experiences and communities.
