Student Conduct Procedures
I. PREPONDERANCE OF THE EVIDENCE
Just enough testimony and information to make it more likely than not that the fact sought to be proven is true. This preponderance is based on the more convincing information and its probable truth or accuracy, and not on the amount of information.
II. CONDUCT/INVESTIGATION PROCESS
Any person may file a complaint against a student for violations of the Standards of Conduct, including violations of the Sexual Harassment Policy. This procedure applies to any allegation of sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual misconduct, sexual exploitation, and/or sexual exposure by a student, regardless of where the alleged violation occurred. For the purpose of this procedure, the Respondent must have been registered or enrolled at the University at the time of the alleged violation (including during an academic recess), and at the time that the complaint is made to the University.
Where to File a Complaint
- Complaints about Student Conduct: All complaints alleging sexual harassment or retaliation committed by students should be submitted to the Office of Educational Equity and Diversity/Title IX
- Complaints about Employee or Third Party Conduct: All complaints alleging sexual harassment or retaliation committed by employees and/or third parties should be submitted to:
Director of Educational Equity and Inclusion/Title IX Coordinator
1000 ASU Drive #509A
Lorman, MS 39096-7500
III. TITLE IX ADMINISTRATOR
Whenever a complaint is received, the Title IX Administrator will be advised of the complaint and may assist in the investigation or resolution of the complaint as directed by the University.
