Conduct Process Settings

Below you will find valuable resources for each of the three conduct process settings. The links will direct you to the Office of Community Standards website where you will find detailed explaination of the processes, your rights, and FAQs.

Meetings:

Meetings are intended to allow for the discussion of alleged violations of University Standards of Conduct. Alleged violations involving students residing in a University housing facility will be referred to the student’s rector. Alleged incidents involving students who do not reside in a University housing facility will be referred to an appropriate University administrator.  

Conferences:

Conferences are intended to allow for the investigation, discussion, and resolution of alleged violations of University Standards of Conduct. Conferences are ordinarily conducted by one or two staff members from the Office of Community Standards and/or their designee(s).

Hearings:

Hearings are more formal in nature than Meetings and Conferences. Hearings are ordinarily scheduled when the nature or severity of the policy questions is such that a finding of responsibility could result in the student’s separation from the University (i.e., temporary or permanent dismissal). Hearings are scheduled and conducted before a panel of two or more Office of Community Standards staff members and/or their designee(s). The student who is alleged to have violated University Standards of Conduct is referred to as a "respondent."
