Student Conduct Coordinator
The Executive Director of Student Services/Director of Housing & Residence Life acts as the Student Conduct Coordinator for all student conduct matters, except for Title IX related incidents. Title IX related incidents will be directed to the Title IX Coordinator. Cases are then assigned to a conduct administrator or hearing board. The Conduct Coordinator is responsible for all record keeping and reporting of incidents. All conduct records are kept for a period of 25 years.
Cases in which the student admits responsibility or cases involving less severe allegations of violation of the code of conduct may be directed to an administrator within the Housing & Residence Life staff. Violations that occur in residential facilities may be directed to administrators that are Area Coordinators within Housing & Residence Life. Violations that allegedly occur in non-residential locations, or off campus will be directed to the Graduate Assistant for Student Conduct or the Student Conduct Coordinator.
Student Conduct Board
A Student Conduct Board may be convened for cases involving more severe allegations of violation of the code of conduct, or in cases in which an accused student appeals the decision of the Conduct Administrator.
Student Conduct Boards are comprised of a combination of faculty, staff and students. Typically, a conduct board will include no less than four and no more than six members. All members have been trained annually by the Student Conduct Coordinator on University policy as well as relevant laws and processes.
