Additional Codes of Responsibility
A school may propose to the Vice President for Academic Affairs a disciplinary code to apply to academic, professional and interpersonal matters arising solely within the province of that school. If approved, such disciplinary code, in addition to the Student Code, shall apply to all students registered in that school.
In cases where an act charged would be a violation of both the Student Code and a school code, the general rule shall be that academic, professional and interpersonal matters will be deferred to the school code for resolution; matters covered only by one code shall be resolved under that code.
In any event, all of the following types of offenses shall be handled under the Student Code:
- any incident involving fire, and all violations alleged under Article IV.
- any incident concerning Living Learning Centers.
- any incident in which not all persons are registered in the same school.
- any incident not promptly handled under a school code.
All other disputes as to whether a matter shall be handled under the Student Code or under a school code shall be resolved according to the sound discretion of the Executive Vice President for Student Life and the Vice President for Academic Affairs or their designee. Sanctions previously imposed under one code may be considered in subsequent proceedings under another code. In no case, however, shall a sanction imposed under a school code be considered to grant immunity as to any sanction imposed under the Student Code.
