Fact-gathering (Student Misconduct)
It is the responsibility of the university, not the parties, to gather information and interview witnesses.
The investigator will meet separately with the Reporting Party and Respondent. If not previously provided, each party is given a summary of procedural protections (see section VII), the investigative process, avenues of appeal, and information about available resources.
The investigator will ask both parties for all information related to the alleged prohibited conduct; including names of witnesses, documents, emails, texts, social media posts, photographs, the existence of video footage, and call logs. Information may be presented by the parties until Evidence Review.
During the course of the investigation, the investigator may identify additional witnesses and gather supplemental evidence.
Students and employees have the responsibility to participate fully and truthfully in university investigations.
