Disciplinary Action Procedures
The campus has jurisdiction over offenses by students that occur on University property (such as classrooms and residence halls), in other locations in the immediate vicinity of the campus (such as nearby fraternity and sorority houses, the student co-ops, and apartment buildings), during official University functions, and off-campus.
Responsibility for pursuing campus disciplinary actions involving students rests with the Center for Student Conduct & Community Standards, which reports to the Dean of Student Life. The office is also responsible for notifying the UC Police Department and the Title IX Compliance Officer of any allegations of sexual assault. At the direction of the Title IX Compliance Officer, the Center for Conduct & Community Standards will conduct an investigation of the allegations in the case and interview any witnesses. The campus has jurisdiction over offenses by students that occur on University property (such as classrooms and residence halls), in other locations in the immediate vicinity of the campus (such as nearby fraternity and sorority houses, the student co-ops, and apartment buildings), during official University functions, and off-campus.
Pending a formal disciplinary hearing, the campus may take a variety of administrative measures against a charged student, including restriction of privileges and services, interim suspension, and exclusion from certain campus areas, such as classrooms and residence facilities. To prevent further conflict between the parties, the campus may use administrative reassignment procedures to move individuals to another residence hall or complex, limit access to a specific hall or complex during the course of a campus or criminal investigation, or make academic accommodations as appropriate for either party. Normal Student Conduct procedures will be followed in resolving allegations of sexual misconduct, with the following exception: a hearing in a case concerning allegations of sexual misconduct may be closed to the public if the hearing body determines that the privacy rights of a witness, including those of the individual who reports being assaulted, may otherwise be jeopardized. Disciplinary actions that may be imposed from the Student Conduct process may include but are not limited to: written warning, disciplinary probation, loss of privileges and exclusion from activities, exclusion from areas of the campus, restitution, University service, monetary fines, records hold, suspension, dismissal, deferral or withholding of degree, revocation of degree previously conferred, stay of sanction, or other actions.
