Under the Code of Student Conduct, the Vice President for Student Affairs (or designee) may impose sanctions and/or separate a student from the community pending the outcome of a hearing regarding alleged violation(s) of the Code of Student Conduct when a student represents a threat of serious harm to self or others, is facing allegations of serious criminal activity, to preserve the integrity of an investigation, to preserve University of Saint Francis property and/or to prevent disruption of, or interference with, the normal operations of the University of Saint Francis. Interim actions can include separation from the institution or restrictions on participation in the community pending the outcome of the hearing on alleged violation(s) of the Code of Student Conduct.
During an interim suspension, a student may be denied access to University of Saint Francis housing and/or the University of Saint Francis campus, including facilities and/or events. As determined appropriate by the Vice President for Student Affairs (or designee), this restriction may include classes and/or all other University of Saint Francis activities or privileges for which the student might otherwise be eligible. At the discretion of the Vice President for Student Affairs (or designee) and with the approval of, and in collaboration with, the appropriate Dean(s), alternative coursework options may be pursued to ensure as minimal an impact as possible on the responding student.
