Students are responsible for knowing the following:
32. Respondents alleged to have violated this Code in ways that may result in sanctions less than expulsion or suspension are subject to a conduct conference with a Conduct Officer. Conduct Conferences will abide by the following procedures:
a. Written notice of the specific charges at least two (2) business days prior to the scheduled conference, unless waived by the student.
b. Respondents shall be afforded reasonable access to the case file, which will be retained by the Office of Student Conduct. Reasonable access to the case file typically includes review in the presence of a designee of the Office of Student Conduct prior to the Conduct Conference. The case file consists of materials that would be considered "educational records," under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (and subsequent revisions) and may be redacted to protect personally identifiable information of other students.
c. Respondents who fail to appear for a conduct conference after proper notice will have the case reviewed and determined in their absence. In this instance, a recording of “no plea” will be noted in the student’s record. The Conduct Officer will assign a sanction based on the information available in the case file.
d. A Conduct Officer's decision may be appealed under the criteria listed in Part 21 of this Code.
