If a student fails to attend a scheduled meeting with the director of Student Conduct Administration (or their designee), or conduct officer/designee, the misconduct violation will be resolved based on the information available to the conduct officer/designee at the time. In this case, the student does not have the right to request a review of the finding(s) and sanction(s).
Partial List of Student Rights:
At the sole discretion of the vice president for Student Affairs or designee, the informal resolution process may be delayed pending the outcome of factually related criminal proceedings. The vice president for Student Affairs or designee, at their sole discretion, reserves the right to reopen a misconduct incident after resolution, when it has been discovered that the respondent may have provided false information during an informal resolution meeting or hearing.
Notification of Pending Misconduct Violations:
Students who are being charged with allegedly violating the Code of Student Conduct (step A above) will be notified of these pending misconduct violations at a scheduled meeting with the Director of the Office of Student Conduct Administration (DOSCA)/designee or Conduct Officer/designee. The date and time of the meeting is set based on the student’s academic schedule found on the University’s Information Management System. Students may not reschedule an appointment that has been set based on their academic schedule, unless there is a verifiable emergency, sickness (see Student sickness at The Source) (page 34 on-line Source only), or a change in academic schedule. Meeting notices will be sent electronically to the student’s University e-mail address or via telephone call. It is up to the student to make sure his or her email account is set up, activated, and not closed due to having a full mailbox, as well as his or her cell phone or residential hall phone number being accurate and able to receive messages.
The University's Conduct system recognizes that students are members of the university community, and also members of the society at large. Every effort is made to ensure that the disciplinary process is fundamentally fair, equitable and in accordance with the University's statements concerning personal rights and freedoms. Sanctions are designed and administered with the goal of developing, refining, and teaching ethical and cultural values.
