Timing (Student Misconduct)
It is the university’s goal to complete misconduct investigations and review by the Misconduct Sanctioning Panel (see section X. below) within 60 calendar days. The Title IX Office will make every effort to complete the investigation in a timely manner by balancing principles of thoroughness, fairness, and promptness.
In some cases, the Title IX Coordinator may determine that good cause exists to extend the 60-day period to conduct a fair and complete investigation, to accommodate an investigation by law enforcement, to accommodate the availability of witnesses or delays by the parties, to account for university breaks or vacations, or due to the complexity of the investigation.
Any extension for good cause will be shared with the parties in writing, and will include the reason for the delay and anticipated timing of completion.
