Upon either the conclusion of the investigation or upon the conclusion of the initial review, the process moves along a pathway to resolution. The process may be resolved either through a Summary Action meeting or Administrative Hearing. The Dean of Students, or designee, will determine which method for resolution is appropriate and assign a Hearing Officer to the case. When possible, cases are resolved through a Summary Action meeting. Factors that may be considered in determining whether an Administrative Hearing is appropriate include the severity and/or complexity of the incident and the student’s prior conduct record.
For a Summary Action meeting, the student may be required to make an appointment with the assigned Hearing Officer. If so, the student is responsible for arranging this requested meeting within the parameters stated in the notification. The student may also receive a brief summary of the alleged behavior. If the student fails to arrange or attend the required meeting, a hold may be placed on the student’s record.
For an Administrative Hearing, the student(s) will be notified of the designated hearing date, time, and location.
