Investigation and Adjudication Procedures

Sexual Misconduct, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking Review Board
The Associate Dean of Student Life serves as Convener of the Sexual Misconduct, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking Review Board. This Board, comprised of 12 fully trained faculty and staff, three of whom are selected to adjudicate any one case of sexual misconduct, will determine responsibility and impose sanction if a student is found responsible. 

Discipline for sexual misconduct can include community service, counseling, probation, suspension, or expulsion.  If a student is found responsible of violence and is suspended, expelled, or withdraws with charges pending, New York State law requires colleges to post a notation on student's transcript "violation of student code of conduct."  Please refer to the Transcript Notation Appeal Policy for details on the process by which a student or graduate may seek to have such a notation removed at the appropriate time.

Complaints will be investigated and adjudicated under the procedures in place at the time the investigation begins.

For detailed information regarding the Review Board please refer to the Sexual Misconduct, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking Review Board procedures.
