When allegations of misconduct are received by University staff, a record is created in the campus student conduct database. The case is then assigned to an investigating officer for resolution.
The investigating officer will send the respondent (student alleged to have violated policy) an email message alerting them to the allegations.
This message, securely accessible only by the respondent, will convey:
- A brief summary of the allegations
- A list of the policies allegedly violated based on the information currently available
- Information about campus policies and procedures under UWS 17
- An invitation to the respondent to schedule a conference to discuss the allegations, and the option to provide information in writing as well as other rights in the process
