If the first meeting does not result in a resolution, a second meeting is held with the department chairperson required to be in attendance. If either party is still dissatisfied with the resolution of the second meeting, a third meeting with the Dean and the two parties will be held. If the resolution at this meeting is still not agreeable to both parties, a formal procedure will occur. Formal resolution: A formal procedure begins with an investigation by the Dean of Student Services followed by a determination of whether a formal hearing is required. If a formal hearing is required, the accused will receive notification along with a statement of the alleged misconduct so that the student may prepare a defense. The accused must receive this notification 72 hours before the hearing, then must send a list of witnesses they plan to call within 48 hours of the hearing.
