If you have any questions regarding the student conduct process at the University of Connecticut, contact one of our attorneys at (203) 221-3100.

1. Allegations

A report of alleged misconduct is a statement written by the individual involved or a referred staff member, and it is recommended that the report be completed as soon as possible following the event. The Director of Community Standards will decide if the misconduct violates The Student Code, and whether it will follow the conduct process. If this is the case, a student conduct officer(s) will be assigned to and investigate the matter.

2. Conferences and Investigations

An administrative conference is a meeting with the involved individual(s) and the conduct officer(s) where the matter is reviewed and the conduct process is explained. The conduct officer will conduct an investigation and decide whether a violation occurred. Once the respondent and complainant have been notified of the investigation results, they will determine whether they want to resolve the case via agreement or hearing.

3. Administrative Hearing

The participants in the hearing can include the conduct officer(s), respondent(s), complainant(s), hearing body members, hearing advisors, and any other individuals to support the respondent(s) and complainant(s). Once the hearing has concluded, a variety of sanctions can be imposed and the option to appeal within 5 days of the decision becomes available.
