Related Misconduct Procedures
Misconduct Related to OIE Policies
The University will be responsive to any report or formal complaint of prohibited conduct, as defined by the Applicable Policy, and is committed to providing prompt, fair, impartial, and equitable resolutions, regardless of whether the report is made directly by a complainant or by a third party, such as a mandatory reporter. The primary concern is the safety of all University community members. The University will take steps to prevent recurrence of any prohibited conduct and remedy discriminatory effects on the complainant and others, as appropriate.
Formal Adjudication Procedures
The OIE may resolve a report of alleged misconduct through the Formal Adjudication process when the alleged misconduct, if true, would be prohibited under the Applicable Policies.
The Formal Adjudication Procedures include five major stages: 1) Filing a Report and Evaluation of the Complaint, 2) Evidence Gathering and Review, 3) Determination Regarding Responsibility, 4) Opportunity for Appeal, as applicable, and 5) Sanctions, as applicable.
Regardless of the resolution option utilized, participants have specific rights and access to resources.
