Submitting a complaint.

(1) Any person may submit a complaint alleging a violation of the code. A complaint may be submitted through the online report form, or to a college official who is able to take action. This includes, but is not limited to, the student conduct officials, the Title IX officials, residential life staff, police services, or to the senior college official. Individuals may choose not to submit a report to police services alleging a violation of the code. A complaint should be submitted as soon as possible after the event has taken place. A group of people may make an initial complaint collectively.
(2) The senior student conduct official, or designee, will be responsible for addressing alleged violations of the code. If there is a question about who should be responsible for addressing a complaint, the senior college official, or designee, will assign responsibility for handling the complaint and if necessary, serve as a student conduct official.
(3) A complainant or respondent may request, in writing to the senior college official or designee, to have a complaint addressed by an alternate student conduct official if a bias, prejudice, or conflict of interest is identified. The senior college official or designee will have the final authority to determine the appropriate student conduct official to assign in this case.
(4) Based on the complaint, the senior student conduct official or designee will conduct an initial review of the complaint to determine jurisdiction and if there is clear information to indicate a possible violation of the code in order to determine next steps. The senior student conduct official or designee may elect to initiate a conduct conference, attempt to gather additional information to make a determination, or close the complaint without any further action. If the complaint is closed without any further action by the senior student conduct official or designee, the parties may be referred for additional resources.
