Interim Measures

INTERIM MEASURES

The College may take temporary, interim steps during the course of an investigation or resolution of a violation of policy in order to preserve the integrity of the process, to address a threat to the health and safety of members of the community, or to protect against a substantial threat to College operations, until a case is resolved. Interim actions do not reflect a presumption or determination that a violation of policy has occurred.

Interim Measures may prevent a student from attending class and other College activities. College Life will communicate with the Center for Student Success and a student’s faculty instructors and/or advisors in order to determine if alternate arrangements can be made to support a student’s completion of academic assignments. Alternate arrangements are made at the sole discretion of the faculty member. Written notice of interim measures will be provided. 

Interim Separation. The Vice President for College Life and Dean of Students, or designee, may impose an Interim Separation from the College:

  1. to promote the safety and well-being of members of the College community or preservation of College property;
  1. If the student poses an ongoing threat of disruption of, or interference with, the normal operations of the College.

During the Interim Separation, a student will be denied access to the residence halls and/or to the campus while the conduct process proceeds. Interim Separation will not be placed on a student’s record. The student will also be notified of the time, date, and place of a meetings, conferences, or hearings that are held as part of the conduct process.

Interim residential separation or residential relocation. A student may be separated temporarily from College housing or temporarily reassigned to another residential location on campus. Their original housing location will be held until the process is over.

Class schedule changes. Changes to a student’s class schedule may be made on a temporary basis in the event it is deemed appropriate by the Vice President of College Life and Dean of Students or designee.

Restrictions from College activities and/or facilities. A student may be denied, on a temporary basis, participation in a College activity or privilege for which they may be otherwise eligible as the Vice President of College Life and Dean of Students or their designee determine to be appropriate. Students may also be prohibited from certain facilities including, but not limited to, academic buildings, fraternities, athletic facilities and/or practice and competition spaces, and transportation services.

Work or job assignment changes. Changes to a student’s work or job assignment (including internships) may be made on a temporary basis in the event it is deemed appropriate by the Vice President of College Life and Dean of Students or the Director of Student Rights and Responsibilities.
