Conduct in Violation of University Policy

The Office of Conduct, Accountability, and Professionalism (OCAP) investigates violations of university policy that have not been investigated by the Office of Equity and Diversity, the Office of Compliance, the Office of Internal Audit or an office investigating research misconduct. It should coordinate appropriately with other investigative offices, and may draw on reports from affiliated institutions and from schools.

Similar to the Office of Equity and Diversity, OCAP investigates, makes findings of fact, and determines if university policy was violated.

Findings involving staff are submitted to the Associate Senior Vice President, Human Resources for evaluation and remediation in compliance with university policy.

Findings involving faculty are submitted to the Office of the Provost for evaluation and remediation in compliance with the Faculty Handbook and university policy.

Findings may also be used in conjunction with active or current investigations by the Office of Equity and Diversity, Human Resources, the Office of Compliance, or the Office of Audit Services.

OCAP reports to the Executive Director of the Office of Equity and Diversity | Title IX.
