2018–2019 by the Numbers
The most common violations were alcohol, controlled substances/drugs, fire safety, and disorderly conduct. Of the community standards reports, 66 percent were reported in the fall semester. Not all students who are documented have a community standards hearing. Last year, 239 students had either an educational meeting with a staff member or received an educational letter. Fifty students chose to attend the decision-making seminar as an alternative resolution for noise violations.
The most common educational sanctions were reflection papers, BASICS, and alcohol education workshops. Students also were assigned restitution or other custom educational sanctions. More than half of the students were given a disciplinary warning, slightly under half were placed on disciplinary probation, and a very small percentage of students were suspended.
In 2018–2019, there were 13 appeals submitted. Two of those appeals were granted. A granted appeal must meet one of the following criteria: there is new evidence that was not available prior to the original hearing, the hearing process as outlined was not adhered to, or the sanction is disproportionate to the violation.
