Sexual Misconduct Board

In accordance with the Sexual Misconduct Policy, the Sexual Misconduct Board adjudicates reported violations of the Sexual Misconduct Policy. The board is comprised of ten members (faculty and staff). Applicants are identified by a nomination and application process that results in recommendations to the vice president for Student Affairs who shall select the members of the board. When the Sexual Misconduct Board is selected as a student’s hearing route, a hearing panel will be identified to review all of the information presented and will respond fairly and effectively to alleged violations of the Sexual Misconduct Policy. The hearing panel makes recommendations to the Dean of Students regarding whether the Sexual Misconduct Policy has been violated as well as sanctions to be imposed.

Members of the board must participate in scheduled training sessions, schedule a weekly time for board hearings and adhere to Title IX requirements. Members must serve at least a year on the board.
