In general, the Dean of Students Office is responsible for managing the Student Conduct Process. However, other University departments may initiate investigations, manage hearing processes, or impose sanctions in accordance with other University policies and procedures, and in consultation with the Dean of Students Office and Student Affairs when appropriate. Examples of other areas that may initiate investigations, manage hearing processes, or impose sanctions in accordance with other University policies and procedures include Internal Audit, the Office of Institutional Diversity, and the AVP for Student Advocacy and Community Relations for violations of University discrimination and harassment policies in which a student is the respondent.
Students should be particularly aware that Residential Education maintains a separate conduct system for violations of Residential Education policies and, as appropriate, violations of other policies that occur in DePaul housing. Students should consult Residence Education for information regarding those policies and procedures, including information on how to file a complaint with Residential Education.
