Brief adjudicative appeal proceedingsInitial hearing.

Brief adjudicative proceedings will be conducted by a conduct review officer. Conduct review officers shall be designated by the senior college official. The conduct review officer will not participate in any case in which they are or have been involved; or in which there is direct or personal interest, prejudice, or bias.
(1) The parties to a brief adjudicative proceeding are the respondent, the student conduct official, and the complainant in cases involving sexual misconduct or assault. Before taking action, the conduct review officer will conduct an informal hearing and provide each party:
(a) An opportunity to be informed of the college's view of the matter; and
(b) An opportunity to explain the student's view of the matter.
(2) The conduct review officer will schedule an informal hearing and serve written notice of the hearing to the parties at least seven calendar days in advance of the hearing. The notice of informal hearing will include the following:
(a) The date, time, location, and nature of the hearing;
(b) A date by which the parties must identify advisors as well as requests for reasonable accommodations, if any;
(c) A date on which the parties may review documents held by the student conduct official; and
(d) A date by which the parties must provide a list of witnesses and copies of any documents to other parties and to the conduct review officer.
(3) The conduct review officer will serve an initial decision upon the parties within ten calendar days of the completion of the informal hearing. The initial decision will contain a brief written statement of the reasons for the decision and information about how to seek administrative review of the initial decision. If no request for review is filed within ten business days of service of the initial decision, the initial decision will be deemed the final decision.
(4) If the conduct review officer determines that the respondent's conduct may warrant imposition of a college or college housing suspension of more than ten days or college expulsion or college housing eviction, the matter will be referred to the student conduct appeal panel for a new hearing.
