3.6.1 - DETERMINING WHO WILL HEAR A STUDENT CONDUCT MATTER
Alleged violations of the Standards of Student Conduct will be reviewed and decided upon by a Hearing Panel or a Hearing Officer at one of the two Hearing Levels described below.
The Dean of Students or designee shall determine which Hearing Level is the appropriate venue for the particular matter. The Dean of Students or designee shall also determine if the matter will be heard by a Hearing Panel or a Hearing Officer. In making these decisions, the Dean of Students or designee may consider the nature of the alleged violation(s), the possible sanctions, the interests of Xavier, and the interests of the Reporting Party and Responding Party, if appropriate, though the decision shall be made in the Dean's or designee's sole discretion. The Dean of Students may also generally designate that all matters of a particular variety be handled in a particular way (e.g., that all after-hours noise violations be heard by a Level 2 Hearing Officer).
