Amnesty Policy

The university encourages reporting and seeks to make the procedures for reporting transparent and straightforward. The university will generally not seek to hold any student reporting sexual misconduct accountable for associated non sexual misconduct violations of the Student Disciplinary Rules in which the reporting party may have been involved at or near the time of the event, provided that any such violations did not and do not place the health and safety of any person at risk. This means that students reporting sexual misconduct will generally not face disciplinary action due to associated non sexual misconduct violations (e.g. underage drinking). However, if a reporter is to be held accountable for his/her own misconduct, such violations will be reviewed in conduct proceedings separate from the sexual misconduct proceedings.
