Pending criminal investigations and/or proceedings (Student Misconduct)

For cases in which criminal investigations are concurrent or pending, the university must proceed independently. The mere fact that a criminal investigation exists is not considered grounds for delay.

However, the Title IX Coordinator will coordinate with law enforcement to insure that university process does not interfere with the integrity or timing of the criminal investigation. At the request of law enforcement, the university may temporarily defer the fact-finding portion of its investigation.

If a criminal investigation is proceeding, the Title IX Coordinator will communicate with the parties about resources/accommodations, procedural options, anticipated timing, and the implementation of necessary interim interventions.
