Conduct Code violations can be reported in any one of the following ways:
- By any member of the College community submitting an account of an incident to the College.
- By external members of the College community submitting an account of an incident to the College.
Reports of alleged violations must be submitted via the Incident Reporting Form. Reports of alleged violations of the Title IX Policy, Gender-Based Misconduct Policy or Hazing Policy may be done so anonymously by use of a hotline (see the Title IX Policy, Gender-Based Misconduct Policy, and Hazing Policy) or via the Anonymous Hazing Reporting Form, Title IX Reporting Form, or Gender-Based Misconduct Form. Members of the College community are encouraged to report incidents as soon after their occurrence as possible, as the passage of time will impede efforts to investigate allegations and gather evidence.
The Director of Community Standards & Accountability, or designee, shall review all incident reports prepared by College officials in consultation with staff to address whether the student or student organization will be charged with engaging in a Conduct Code violation and/or if the matter can be disposed of through an Administrative Review. If the matter cannot be resolved in an Administrative Review, the Director of Community Standards & Accountability, or designee, will decide which Judicial Body process shall be used to resolve the matter.
The Dean of Students or designee may refer matters to one of the following judicial body processes:
- Administrative Review;
- Informal Resolution;
- Conduct Conference (for organizations only, not individual students);
- Hearing by the Judicial Hearing Board, the Student Conduct Committee, or the Organizational Misconduct Committee;
