Student Conduct Code - Section 7.2.2 Interim Suspension
In certain circumstances, the Vice Provost for Student Life, or a designee, may impose a University and/or residence hall suspension prior to the conduct conference.
Interim suspension will be imposed: 1) to ensure the safety and well being of members of the University community or preservation of University property; b) to ensure the student’s own physical or emotional safety and well being; or c) if the student poses an ongoing threat of disruption of, or interference with, the routine operations of the University.
The Notice of Interim Suspension indicates the Student Conduct Code section(s) which are alleged to have been violated and specify the terms and conditions of the suspension. The terms and conditions may (a) exclude the respondent from entering campus or particular areas of the campus, including classes and University-operated housing facilities; (b) restrict the respondent from participating in specific activities; (c) prohibit the respondent from contacting or communicating with certain individuals; or (d) other related conditions for the period of the suspension. Under the terms and conditions of the suspension, the respondent shall be restricted only to the minimum extent necessary.
The interim suspension does not replace the regular process, which will proceed on the usual schedule, up to and through a conduct conference or Conduct Board process, if required.
