Processes and Guidelines

The University will respond to violations of the Code through a variety of pathways, informally and/or formally, with the goal of educating all parties involved. Resolutions, as well as appeal processes, are administrative functions internal to the University. Students may also face external, criminal/civil proceedings for violations of federal/state laws and/or city ordinances. Proceedings under the Code of Community Conduct may be carried out prior to, simultaneously with, or following criminal/civil proceedings.

Student groups/organizations are expected to comply with the community standards set forth in the Code and may be charged with violations of those standards. Hearings for student groups or organizations follow the same general student conduct procedures. Determinations as to responsibility will be made. Sanctions will be assigned collectively and/or individually, and will be proportionate to the involvement of each individual and the organization
