What happens after I file a report?
The Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs will investigate the charges, then determine
whether to proceed. If the VCSA decides to go forward, the accused will be notified.
They will attend a pre-hearing conference where they can choose to accept responsibility
and either be sanctioned by the VCSA board, or by the All University Conduct Board.
Conversely, if the accused denies responsibility, they can request a hearing by either
the VCSA board or the AUCB. Accused students are considered innocent until proven
