Investigation Process

Individuals participating in an investigation will work directly with the Associate Dean of Students in the University for Disciplinary Affairs throughout the process.

The Associate Dean serves as a neutral investigator in the process and is responsible for gathering all relevant information related to the complaint and providing a prompt, fair, impartial, and thorough investigation. The process includes acquiring relevant documents, establishing timelines, and interviewing the complainant, respondent, and applicable witnesses.   

If the incident is sent to a disciplinary committee hearing, the Associate Dean will create a detailed report summarizing the information. 

Prior to a hearing with the University-wide Student Disciplinary Committee, the complainant and respondent will have the opportunity to see and respond to all the information to be used by the committee to make a decision of responsibility.
