Sanctions

A basic outline of the sanctioning process follows. Please see the Code of Student Conduct for additional details regarding sanctioning. 

Factors that influence the degree and nature of sentencing:

  • The nature of the violation and the incident itself;
  • The impact of the conduct to the individuals involved;
  • The impact or implications of the conduct on the university community; 
  • Prior misconduct by the respondent;
  • Any expression of remorse or acceptance of responsibility by the repsondent;
  • Maintenance of a safe and respectful environment conducive to learning;
  • Protection of the university community;
  • The necessity of any specific action in order to eliminate the prohibited conduct, prevent its recurrence, and remedy its effects on members of the university community;
  • Any mitigating, aggravating, or compelling circumstances in order to reach a just and appropriate resolution in each case.

Most cases will be assigned both a status sanction and an active sanction.

Status Santions reflect a change in the respondent's status in the student conduct system.

  • Warning
  • Censure
  • Disciplinary Probation
  • Removal from Housing
  • Suspension
  • Expulsion
  • Other status sanctions

Active Sanctions require action by the respondent in order to be completed.

  • Alcohol and other drug review 
  • Apology
  • Community Engagement 
  • Community Service 
  • Fine
  • Meetings
  • Reflective Project 
  • Restitution 
  • Workshop
  • Other

Students who fail to complete active sanctions will have an encumbrance placed on their records by SRR, which will be removed upon completion of all sanctions required by the university. Encumbrances will typically prevent students from registering from classes, withdrawing from courses, applying for on-campus housing assignments, or receiving copies of academic transcripts.
