Faculty FAQs

In many cases, Student Accountability & Conflict Resolution can resolve the case through a Facilitated Resolution. Through a Facilitated Resolution, both the student and faculty member will be given an opportunity to share their information. Our staff will review the evidence and propose a resolution. Both parties will have three (3) business days to review the resolution and either accept or decline it. If both parties accept, then the case is resolved. If either party declines, the case will be referred on to a Formal Resolution.

​Having a hearing does not mean the student will automatically fail the course or be suspended. Our panel members try to help students learn from their mistakes and make their decision based on the preponderance of evidence. We also have educational sanctions that a panel can impose in place of, or in addition to, a grade penalty or status sanction. 

Contact Student Accountability & Conflict Resolution and provide details as to why you believe an act of academic misconduct has occurred. Once we know the details, we can advise you on the best and most appropriate plan of action.
