The final written determination will state only whether there was a violation of the policy. Complainant and respondent will be notified promptly of the final determination. DEI shall have no independent authority to impose sanctions. If DEI finds there has been a violation of policy, then DEI may provide a recommendation as to the appropriate sanction for consideration by the dean or division head responsible for deciding and imposing disciplinary action.

Additional university resources are available.

Faculty

If at any time during the investigation, a bona fide question arises out of a conflict between the principles of academic freedom and the requirements of the policy, the respondent or director of the DEI may request that the provost or the provost's designee appoint a Faculty Review Panel to review the evidence and to provide advice to DEI as to whether there was a violation of policy.

Following a determination of sanctions, faculty may avail themselves of avenues of appeal as listed in the "Statement of Principles Governing Faculty Relationships." A faculty member shall be entitled to a hearing of the Faculty Hearing Committee when the sanction imposed by the dean for violation of the Equal Opportunity and Discriminatory Harassment Policy is the suspension, transfer, or termination of his/her employment.

Staff

Staff members who receive disciplinary penalties under the Equal Opportunity and Discriminatory Harassment Policy may consult Human Resources for information about the grievance process that may be used to challenge alleged violations, misinterpretations, or inequitable application of policies or procedures.
