Wash. Admin. Code § 132C-120-300 - Supplemental sexual misconduct procedures

Current through Register Vol. 22-07, April 1, 2022

Both the respondent and the complainant in cases involving allegations of sexual misconduct shall be provided the same procedural rights to participate in student discipline matters, including the right to participate in the initial disciplinary decision-making process and to appeal any disciplinary decision.

The college reserves the right to take whatever protective measures it deems necessary in response to an allegation of sexual misconduct in order to protect the rights and personal safety of our campus community members. Such measures include, but are not limited to, reasonable changes to academic/housing arrangements, no-contact orders, counseling, interim suspension from campus pending a proceeding, and reporting the matter to local police. The college will consider the concerns and rights of both the recipient of and the person accused of the sexual misconduct. Not all forms of sexual misconduct will be deemed to be equally serious offenses, and the college reserves the right to impose different sanctions, from warning to dismissal, depending on the severity of the offense.

Application of the following procedures is limited to student conduct code proceedings involving allegations of sexual misconduct by a student. In such cases, these procedures shall supplement the student disciplinary procedures in WAC 132C-120-010 through 132C-120-200. In the event of conflict between the sexual misconduct procedures and the student disciplinary procedures, the sexual misconduct procedures shall prevail.
