It is important to report all incidents of student misconduct. Past incidents involving the student may demonstrate a pattern of misconduct resulting in further disciplinary action.
1. Contact the student.
Set up a meeting to discuss the alleged misconduct; specify a meeting date and time. Document efforts to contact the student. Keep a copy of all written correspondence.
2. Meet with the student.
Share evidence of misconduct with the student, and explain how their conduct appears to violate the Student Conduct Code. Cite specific sections of the Code. Offer them the opportunity to respond to a suspected violation. If misconduct occurred, file an incident report with the Office of Student Conduct. Inform the student that the grade for the assignment or the course will not be reported until the conduct process is complete.
Incidents reported to the Office of Student Conduct are processed according to the Student Conduct Code. Evidence and documentation of the alleged misconduct should be sent or delivered to the Office of Student Conduct, UW1 080. Faculty filing the Incident Report will be notified by the Office of Student Conduct when the conduct process is complete
NOTE: No unfavorable action should be taken against a student for alleged misconduct until notified by the Office of Student Conduct that written notice of the hearing outcome has been provided to the student and the conduct process is complete.
For example, no grade should be issued in academic integrity cases and no conclusions should be reached/rendered while disciplinary action is pending.
