Administrative Hearing

The Administrative Hearing body consists of three University faculty/staff. The administrative hearing board hears the case, weighs the evidence and testimony of witnesses, determines responsibility or non-responsibility of the accused, and makes a sanction recommendation. The accused student will be determined responsible or non-responsible by the preponderance of the evidence. Preponderance of evidence means evidence that would lead a reasonable person to conclude that it is more likely than not that the act in question did occur or that the fact or proposition is true.
