When an allegation of sexual misconduct is brought to the attention of the University and an individual is found to have violated this policy, serious sanctions will be used as an effort to reasonably ensure that such actions are minimized and prevented whenever possible. These procedures have been developed to reaffirm these principles, to serve as complimentary function of the Student Code of Conduct and to provide recourse for those individuals whose rights have been violated. It is imperative that all students read through the Student Code of Conduct, which serves as the primary document regarding student misconduct.
The code can be found online at studentconduct. These procedures establish a mechanism for determining when the sexual misconduct policies have been violated. This procedure only applies to students that have allegedly engaged in sexual misconduct.
