Interim Suspension

Effective Date Aug 1, 2009

The Dean of Students or designee shall have the authority in emergency situations to suspend a student’s right to be present on campus or on other property owned, operated or controlled by the university before a formal disciplinary conference. The Dean of Students or designee shall determine whether a student has demonstrated a clear and present danger to him/herself or others. These determinations must be made as a matter of fact, on the basis of information presented to the Dean of Students or designee. Subject to the emergency nature of the situation and determinations of fact required, the Dean of Students shall permit a student to challenge the information presented. A formal review of the matter shall be held at the earliest feasible time, but normally within three (3) days of the declaration of an interim suspension.
