The accused student and the complainant may choose to utilize the services of an advisor. The advisor must be a member of the University community (faculty member, administrative or support staff employee, or a student) and must not have a vested interest or involvement in the incident under consideration. The advisor is not allowed to represent the student. The advisor is allowed to consult with the student.
In some cases where an attorney has been retained due to concurrent criminal charges, the attorney may be present during an administrative process. The attorney will not be allowed to speak for the accused student and may not address the hearing body directly at any time. The attorney acts only as an advisor to the accused student.
In cases of Sexual Violence, please refer here for advisor information.
