The University's Processes and Response to Misconduct
The University will take seriously all good faith reports of alleged Misconduct. University proceedings will seek to provide a prompt, fair and impartial consultation, investigation and response by officials who receive annual training.
Because the University recognizes that such Misconduct includes an attack on an individual's dignity and self-determination rights, the University will attempt to let reporting parties select the process for addressing their allegations. In general, there are two main paths for addressing sexual misconduct: (1) an informal consultation pertaining to possible Misconduct and (2) a formal complaint of alleged Misconduct. Ultimately, and especially in cases that involve pattern, predation, threats or violence, the University reserves the right to proceed in whatever manner it deems appropriate.
