organizations are handled by the Assistant Dean of Campus Life and
Director of Student Life and individuals may be referred to the Stu-
dent Judicial Officer for adjudication.

5. Regardless of the disposition of any case, individual or group, the
Vice President and Dean of Campus Life must assume ultimate
responsibility.

ARTICLE V: Judicial Procedures
1. General Protocol Procedures

A. Any student, professional staff, or faculty may refer to the Stu-
dent Judicial Officer (Assistant Dean of Campus Life) any stu-
dent believed to be in violation of any University regulation con-
cerned with personal behavior, academic honesty, traffic and
security, or residence hall policy. The Student Judicial Officer
shall secure all available information concerning the possible
violation, including pertinent facts, evidence, statements, and
names of witnesses.

B. The Student Judicial Officer may determine the charges and shall
request that the student so referred meet with him/her for an
administrative hearing within five (5) nor more than fifteen (15)
calendar days after notification to the student was typed to discuss
the possible violation of University regulations. If the student
fails to appear for the conference and the Student Judicial Of-
ficer has in good faith exhausted all reasonable efforts to schedule
a conference, the Student Judicial Officer, on the basis of the
information available, may make a determination of a violation
of University regulations and may impose a sanction for such
violation. This decision shall be accomplised in writing to the
student.

C. Before the administrative hearing begins with the Student Judicial
Officer, the student shall be informed that the conference is for
the purpose of discussing a possible violation of University regula-
tions. The student shall be afforded the opportunity to
acknowledge in writing that the conference is as indicated and
that the student:



55



1. shall be afforded the right to remain silent and not have
that silence an inference of a violation;

2. may be afforded the opportunity to choose, in writing, to
have the matter considered by either:

a. the Student Judicial Officer; or

b . a hearing by the Judiciary Council;

(Note: The implications of the selection of either of the
above procedures shall be clearly explained to the student
by the Student Judicial Officer.)

3. shall be afforded the right to have and advisor who does
not appear as a witness during an administrative hearing
or a Judiciary Council hearing. The advisor may not speak
for the student during questioning by members of the
Judicial Body. Nor may the advisor question any witness
appearing at the hearing. In answering a question, the stu-
dent may seek assistance from the advisor.

4 . shall be afforded the right to present witnesses and infor-
mation on his/her behalf;

5. shall be informed that any oral or written statements the
student may make pertaining to the possible violation may
be presented in any subsequent proceeding;

6. shall be afforded the right to prepare a written statement
concerning the alleged violation;

7. shall be informed that the academic, behavior, and co-
curricular activities record may be presented as a part of
any subsequent proceeding;

8. shall be presumed not in violation until a violation is
proven;

9. shall be assured that only evidence obtained in compliance
with University policies and procedures will be used in any
subsequent proceeding;

10. shall be afforded the right to question witnesses in any subse-
quent proceeding;

1 1. shall be afforded the right to appeal a decision by the Stu-
dent Judicial Officer or Judiciary Council to an Appellate
Board (see Article VII: Appeals).



D. Once a student has been informed of the rights provided in Ar-
ticle V:C above, of the sanctions that could be imposed should
a violation be determined to have occurred, and has knowingly
and voluntarily accepted in writing the authority of the respec-
tive proceeding to consider the matter and to impose a sanction,
the student shall have waived the right to have the matter con-
sidered at the original level by the alternative proceedings.



E. The following sanctions are among those which may be impos-
ed in any student judicial proceeding:



56



1. Warning. An oral or written statment that the behavior of the
student was inappropriate but that it does not mean a perma-
nent disciplinary record.

2. Reprimand. An oral or written expression of disapproval to the
student for a violation of University regulations and for the im-
plications of the violation to the student and to the University
community.

3. Disciplinary Probation. A strong statement of disapproval to the
student for a violation of University regulations and the impos-
tion of a specified period of time during which the student shall
be required to report as required to the Student Judicial Officer,
and, further, shall be required to:

(a) forfeit the privilege of representing the University in any in-
tercollegiate event, competition, or other manner; or

(b) forfeit the privilege of holding any elected or appointed stu-
dent office or University community assignment; or

(c) perform such reasonable civic or campus service, non-credit
academic assignments, or other action which may be ap-
propriate to the particular situation.

Any student who fails to adhere to the specified conditions of
Disciplinary Probation shall be required to appear before the Stu-
dent Judicial Officer or the Judiciary Council for further considera-
tion of the case and the sanctions imposed.

4. Suspension. Termination of the student's continued enrollment
in the University and exclusion of the student from the Univer-
sity for a specified period of time. During the suspension, the stu-
dent shall not be permitted to enroll in any courses offered by
the University, either in residence or by correspondence, nor shall
credit be given by the University for academic work taken at
another institution.

5. Expulsion. Termination of the student's continued enrollment in
the University and exclusion of the student from the University
for an indefinite period of time, which in no instance shall be
less than two calendar years from the date of the imposition of
this sanction.

6. Restitution. Requirement to make compensation for damaged, lost,
stolen, or destroyed property. The respective judicial body shall
set the amount and form of restitution which shall not exceed
the fair amount of damage, loss, theft, or destruction incurred.
This action may be taken separately or in conjunction with other
sanctions.

7 . Removal from University on-campus housing. Immediate vacation
of space from an on-campus residential facility (residence hall,
fraternity or sorority house, or auxiliary unit) and cancellation
of the appropriate housing agreement. This action may be taken
separately or in conjunction with other sanctions.



57



8. Interim Suspension. In certain circumstances, the Vice Presi-
dent and Dean of Campus Life, or a designee, may impose
a University or residence-hall suspension prior to the hear-
ing before a judicial body.

(a) Interim suspension may be imposed only: (1) to ensure
the safety and well-being of members of the University
community or preservation of University property; (2)
to ensure the student's own physical or emotional safety
and well-being; or (3) if the student poses a definite threat
of disruption of or interference with the normal opera-
tions of the University.

(b) During the interim suspension, students shall be denied
access to the residence halls and/or to the campus (in-
cluding classes) and/or all other University activities or
privileges for which the student might otherwise be eligi-
ble, as the Vice President and Dean of Campus Life or
the Student Judicial Officer may determine to be
appropriate.

F . The Student Judicial Officer shall make every effort to have
judicial matters considered as expeditiously as possible by either
an administrative hearing or a Judiciary Council hearing in order
to remove any question of a student's continuance at the Univer-
sity. If the student withdraws from the University before having
had the matter considered by one of the respective authorities,
reentry may not occur until the matter is resolved.

G . If the student elects an administrative hearing with the Student
Judicial Officer and is found to have violated University regula-
tions, the Student Judicial Officer will impose a sanction and in-
form the student at the conclusion of the hearing or in a subse-
quent conference to do so. The findings and the sanction impos-
ed by the Student Judicial Officer shall be made by an examina-
tion of the evidence and the statements offered by the student
during the hearing.

H . If the Student Judicial Officer determines that, on the basis of
the conference with the student and the available information,
a possible violation of University regulations has occurred, and
the student elects to have the matter considered by the Judiciary
Council, the Student Judiciary Officer shall immediately make
the referral to the Council. This shall be accomplished in writing
from the Student Judiciary Officer to the student, with a copy
to the President of the Council.

I . The Judiciary Council shall not be obligated to hear cases where
the case was ready for adjudication in the last week of classes
before final examinations of an academic term. In such instances,
the Student Judicial Officer shall have authority to act in all cases.



58



J. Violations of University regulations during the summer shall not
be considered by the Student Judiciary Council.

K . A suspended or expelled student shall present to the Student
Judicial Officer a request for readmission to the University at least
three (3) weeks prior to the beginning of the semester of
readmission.

L . The status of any student who resumes studies at the University
after suspension or explusion shall be that of Disciplinary Proba-
tion for the first semester of reenrollment.

ARTICLE VI: Judiciary Council Hearings

1. A quorum of the Judiciary Council to hear any case shall be two-
thirds (2/3) of its voting membership, excluding members who have
removed themselves from hearing any matter because of a conflict
of interest with the student. The Council shall first make a decision
concerning whether the student committed the alleged violation.
Should a violation be determined to have occured, the Council then
shall recommend a just and appropriate sanction. In both instances,
a vote of two-thirds (2/3) of those voting members present at the hear-
ing shall be required.

2. A student shall be allowed to have an advisor who does not appear
as a witness during a hearing before the Judiciary Council. The ad-
visor may not speak for the student during questioning by members
of the Judiciary Council. Nor may the advisor question any witness
appearing at the hearing. In answering a question, the student may
seek assistance from the advisor.

3. Judiciary Council hearings on an alleged violation of University
regulations by students shall be private. The Student Judicial Officer
shall present the case of the University on the alleged violation before
the Council, including the calling of supporting witnesses. Further,
the Student Judicial Officer shall advise the Council on the procedural
conduct of the hearing.

4. When more than one student is involved in the same case and charg-
ed with the same alleged violation, the cases may be heard concur-
rently unless separate hearings are requested. The students shall be
informed in advance by the Student Judicial Officer of the right to
a separate hearing before proceeding.

5. A student's prior record (legal or disciplinary) shall not be used to
determine or substantiate an alleged violation of University regula-
tions. However, a prior record may be considered in determining an
appropriate sanction when the Judiciary Council has determined that
a violation has occurred.

6. The proceedings of the Judiciary Council hearing shall be recorded
electronically, and the recording shall be maintained by the Student
Judicial Officer.



59



7. The Judiciary Council, the Student Judicial Officer, and the stu-
dent shall have the right to present witnesses at a hearing. Students
shall have the right to ask questions directly of all witnesses.
Witnesses shall appear before hearings only during the offering of
their own information and shall respond to direct questions from
either the student or from those conducting the hearing.

8. The Student Judicial Officer and the Judiciary Council shall have
the authority to request any faculty, staff, or student of Stetson
University to appear as a witness if they believe that such witness
could provide useful information relative to the case under considera-
tion. They may waive an appearance if an individual feels that ap-
pearing at a hearing might violate a professional relationship with
the student who is the subject of that hearing. A witness who feels
a need to be excused shall so indicate in advance of the hearing to
the Student Judicial Officer.

9. When a witness fails or refuses to appear, the chair of the appropriate
judicial body and the Student Judicial Officer shall decide whether
or not to proceed on the basis of evidence available. Written
statements from absent witnesses shall be inadmissible. If the judicial
body so desires, it may discontinue the hearing until the witness
may appear and offer relevant information.

10. A member of the Judiciary Council shall not participate as a Coun-
cil member in a case in which that member appears as a witness,
or in which the case being considered presents a conflict of interest.

1 1 . Any student or professional staff or faculty involved in the investiga-
tion or preparation of a case shall not sit in discussion or voting
during deliberation or remain in the room during any breaks in the
proceeding.

12. The Judiciary Council shall not have the power to require sworn
statements of students appearing before the Council or of witnesses
for or against the student. Refusal of a student to make a statement
or to answer any or all questions shall not by itself be a basis for
determining whether a violation occurred.

ARTICLE VII: Appeals

1. A University Appellate Board shall be appointed on a case-by-case
basis by the Vice President and Dean of Campus Life. The Vice
President and Dean of Campus Life shall communicate in writing
to the student the decision of an Appellate Board. The decision of
a Judicial Body or a sanction imposed by a Judicial Body may be
appealed to an Appellate Board. The student shall submit the re-
quest to appeal within seven (7) calendar days of the written advise-
ment of the decision. The appeal shall be made in writing to the
Vice President and Dean of Campus Life and state the basis on which
the appeal is being made. An appeal must be based on some specific
aspect of the previous hearing, for example, unjust sanction or un-
just finding of a violation. The Appellate Board either may uphold,
vacate the decision or may alter the sanction among the alternatives



60



included in Article V:E above. Further, the Board may elect to decide
based solely on the information contained in the written appeal or in
a conference with the student and advisor or counsel to discuss the matter.



ARTICLE VIII: Standard of Evidence

The determination that a violation of University regulations has been
committed shall be made on the basis of a preponderance of the
evidence or information presented (there is a greater weight of
evidence that the accused student violated the Code of Conduct).
A record of civil or criminal arrest only shall not be considered suffi-
cient for a determination that a violation of University regulations
occurred.

The hearing officer shall have the right to declare evidence inadmissi-
ble and may do so only if it is irrelevant to the case or if it was ob-
tained improperly.



ARTICLE IX: Records

1. The disciplinary record of all judicial proceedings shall be maintain-
ed by the Student Judicial Officer in a secured file and shall be sub-
ject to limited access by the President of the Judiciary Council, or
by the Dean of Campus Life.

2. In all such cases where the accused student is found not to have
violated University regulations, such finding shall be clearly noted
in the records and removed from the student's file.

3. All decisions of Judiciary Council hearings shall be signed by the Presi-
dent of the Council and kept with the records.

4. A copy of all case reports shall be kept on file in the office of the
Student Judicial Officer.

5. The student may request a copy of the electronic recording of the
Judiciary Council hearing, such copy to be provided at a minimal
cost. The request for such a copy shall be made in writing by the
student to the Student Judicial Officer.

CAMPUS NOTES



FOOTBALL had a long history at Stetson. The first
organized football game in the state was an intermural con-
test on Thanksgiving Day, 1894, when the "Forbes" team,
coached by C. B. Rosa, beat the "Stetson" team, coached by
Harvey MacQueston of the English Department.
