In certain circumstances, interim measures may be taken upon referral to Student Conduct Services of alleged student misconduct. These interim measures do not replace the student conduct process. Interim measures may be imposed effective immediately, without prior notice, when in the judgement of the Director, the seriousness of alleged behavior threatens the safety and well-being of members of the University community, threatens University property or has potential to disrupt or interfere with normal University operations.
The student or organization will be notified in writing of the terms of the interim measures and the reason for the interim measures. Interim measures are reviewed if new information becomes available and will be adjusted accordingly. If the student or organization wishes to appeal the appropriateness of any interim measures imposed they may submit in writing reasons why the interim measures are not appropriate. The Hearing Officer will review the information and notify the student or organization in writing of their decision whether or not to adjust any interim measures.
