The Boards for Hearing Cases
2. Student Conduct Board The Conduct Officer shall refer to the Conduct Board cases that require one of three types of hearing:
a. College Standards Hearing
1. Cases involving possible violations of the Code of Student Conduct that could result in a sanction of suspension or expulsion;
2. Cases in which the accused student does not accept responsibility for the violation with the understanding that the full range of sanctions including suspension or expulsion are available should the student be found responsible for the behavior in question;
b. Sexual Misconduct Hearing Cases involving possible violations of the College’s Sexual Misconduct or Sexual Harassment policies that could result in suspension or expulsion.
c. Organization Misconduct Hearing Cases involving possible violations of the Code of Student Conduct by recognized student organizations, including but not limited to recognized student organizations, clubs, and varsity and club athletic teams.
3. The Appeals Board
a. Shall serve as a board of appeal to which any student may petition for a review of any case which the student feels the Conduct Board has not adjudicated properly. Such cases may be appealed on the basis of new information which could not have been presented at the original hearing or when there is reason to believe that a violation of procedure occurred which could have affected the outcome of the hearing, but may not be appealed on the basis of dissatisfaction with the sanction.
b. Shall serve as a board of appeal for students disciplined for academic dishonesty by a faculty member or the dean of students or as a hearing board for students accused of academic dishonesty.
No member of any Board may be an attorney.
