Incidents of alleged violations of the Code of Conduct should be reported to the Office of the Dean of Students.1 Any member of the University community may file a written report concerning alleged violations of the Code of Conduct. A written report should be prepared and directed to the Dean of Students, or designee. Any report should be submitted, either in paper or electronically, as soon as possible after the alleged event takes place. Reports should contain as much information as possible about the incident, including date, time, location, description of events and a list of individuals involved. Reports may also be made in person at the Office of the Dean of Students. Any delay in reporting may result in lost evidence or an inability to investigate the report.
The University considers the reporting and adjudication of Code of Conduct violations to be extremely important. While the University considers the expectations outlined in the Code of Conduct as a minimum standard of behavior, the University may extend limited immunity to students reporting incidents and/or assisting the parties from sanctioning for some University policy violations.
1Incidents of alleged violations of the Student Sexual Misconduct Policy should be reported in accordance with the requirements of that policy. Incidents of alleged violations of other University policies that may result in a proceeding under the Honor Code or Code of Conduct should be reported in accordance with the requirements of those policies or to the Office of the Dean of Students.
