100.00 Policy on Student Conduct and Discipline*

(Updated January 2016)

*Pending approval and subject to further changes.

100.10

The mission of the University of California, San Francisco is advancing health worldwide. As future health care professionals and health science researchers, UCSF students are held to high standards of behavior, particularly in matters of ethics, judgment, and professionalism. As such, student conduct is considered a part of a student’s academic performance. Matters of discipline are therefore initiated by the Deans of the Schools and the Dean of the Graduate Division. The Dean shall be made aware of alleged misconduct, determine the appropriate response for alleged violations of conduct (either via academic professionalism standards or via student conduct procedures), determine the responsibility of those charged, and provide or recommend such disciplinary measures as are described in Section 105.00 of these Policies, as applicable.

Students facing multiple allegations of misconduct will, at the discretion of the University, be subject to the applicable policies and due process procedures for each of the respective violations (including, but not limited to, academic, professional, student conduct, and/or discrimination, harassment and other sexual violence.) These processes may occur concurrently and may result in additional and different outcomes. Determinations for graduation eligibility and degree conferral may be deferred until all allegations and any assigned sanctions and condition have been fully resolved.

For alleged violation(s) of the University of California Policy on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment (http://policy.ucop.edu/doc/4000385/SVSH), (including sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking of a sexual nature, etc.), discipline and adjudication procedures detailed in PACAOS Appendix E: Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment Student Adjudication Framework (https://studentlife.ucsf.edu/appendix-e-sexual-violence-and-sexual-harassment-student-adjudication-procedures) apply. In the event of conflicts between Appendix E and any other policies or procedures published by the University of California and/or UCSF, including but not limited to the Policies Applying to Campus Activities, Organizations, and Students (PACAOS), Appendix E takes precedence. In these matters, the Office for Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination (OPHD) makes determinations for investigations and the Student Conduct Office makes determinations for responsibility of those charged, and assigns disciplinary sanctions, if applicable, in accordance with Appendix E.

101.00 Student Conduct

Students are members of both society and the University community, with attendant rights and responsibilities. Students are expected to comply with all laws and with University policies and campus regulations.

The standards of conduct apply to students as the term ‘student’ is defined in Section 14.40 of these Policies. They also apply to:

a.  applicants who become students, for offenses committed as part of the application process;

b.  applicants who become students, for offenses committed on campus and/or while participating in University-relatd events or activites that take place following a student's      submittal of the application through his or her official enrollment; and

c.  former students for offenses committed while a student.

If specified in implementing campus regulations, these standards of conduct may apply to conduct that occurs off campus and that would violate student conduct and discipline policies or regulations if the conduct occurred on campus.

101.10 Off-Campus Behavior
 

In addition to conduct which occurs on University property or in connection with official university related events, the University shall have the discretion to exercise jurisdiction over off-campus behavior if it: 1) adversely affects the health, safety, or security of any member of the campus community; or 2) conflicts with the University’s mission, Code of Conduct, and Policy on Student Conduct and Discipline. In determining whether or not to exercise off-campus jurisdiction, the University may consider the seriousness of the alleged behavior, the risk of harm involved, whether the victim(s) are members of the campus community, and/or whether the off-campus conduct is part of a series of actions which occurred both on and off campus.

102.00 Grounds for Discipline

Chancellors may impose discipline for the commission or attempted commission (including aiding or abetting in the commission or attempted commission) of the following types of violations by students, as well as such other violations as may be specified in campus regulations:

102.01

All forms of academic misconduct including but not limited to cheating, fabrication, plagiarism, or facilitating academic dishonesty.

102.02

Other forms of dishonesty including but not limited to fabricating information, furnishing false information, or reporting a false emergency to the University.

102.03

'Terrorize' means to cause a reasonable person to fear bodily harm or death, perpetrated by the actor or those acting under his/her control. 'Reckless disregard' means consciously disregarding a substantial risk. This section applies without regard to whether the conduct is motivated by race, ethnicity, personal animosity, or other reasons.

Definitions

"Express consent" is clear, unmistakable and voluntary consent that may be in written, oral or nonverbal form.

"Private locations" are settings where the person reasonably expected privacy. For example, in most cases the following are considered private locations: residential living quarters, bathrooms, locker rooms, and personal offices.

"Private, non-public conversations and/or meetings" include any communication carried on in circumstances that reasonably indicate that any party wants the communication to be confined to the parties, but excludes a communication made in a public gathering, or in any other circumstance in which the parties to the communication may reasonably expect that the communication may be overheard or recorded.

102.26

Violation of local, State, or federal laws otherwise not covered under these standards of conduct.

102.27

In addition to the violations outlined above, students at UCSF are held to a high standard of academic professionalism. Unprofessional behavior, as defined by each school and the Graduate Division, may result in the initiation of student discipline and/or academic professionalism discipline procedures.

103.00 Student Discipline Procedures

103.10 Procedural Due Process

Procedural due process is basic to the proper enforcement of University policies and campus regulations. Chancellors shall establish and publish campus regulations providing for the handling of student conduct cases in accordance with basic standards of procedural due process. Consistent with this requirement, procedures specified in such regulations shall be appropriate to the nature of the case and the severity of the potential discipline.

103.11

When a formal hearing is deemed to be appropriate, campus implementing regulations shall provide the following minimum procedural standards to assure the accused student a fair hearing:

a.  Written notice,including a brief statement of the factual basis of the charges, the University policies or campus regulations allegedly violated,and the time and place of the hearing, within a reasonable time before the hearing;

b.  The opportunity for a prompt and fair hearing where the University shall bear the burden of proof,and at which the student shall have the opportunity to present documents and witnesses and to confront and cross-examine witnesses presented by the University; no inference shall be drawn from the silence of the accused;

c.  A record of the hearing; an expeditious written decision based upon the preponderance of evidence, that shall be accompanied by a written summary of the findings of fact; and

d.  An appeals process.

104.00 Administration of Student Discipline

104.10

Chancellors may impose discipline for violations of University policies or campus regulations whether or not such violations are also violations of law, and whether or not proceedings are or have been pending in the courts involving the same acts.

 
104.20

Each Chancellor may appoint faculty, student, or other advisory committees, or hearing officers, as specified in campus regulations, but the final authority for administration of student discipline rests with the Chancellor.

104.21

Although the final authority for the administration of student discipline rests with the Chancellor, student conduct (related to academic professionalism and/or alleged non- academic conduct policy violations) is addressed by the Dean or Dean’s designee of the student’s School or the Graduate Division.

While more specific procedures may be found at each of the links above, the essential elements for student discipline procedures that apply to investigating allegations of non-academic policy violations, are as follows:

A.Fact Finding: Upon learning of an alleged policy violation, initial fact finding will occur by relevant faculty, staff, or administrator.

B.Optional Informal Resolution: After the initial fact finding, and dependent upon the severity of the alleged violation, the faculty, staff, or administrator may choose to resolve the matter informally with verbal admonishment or written notice that repeated behavior will be subject to the formal disciplinary process. If informal resolution is determined to be appropriate, such action shall be determined within five (5) business days of the completion of the fact finding process.

C.Initiation of Formal Disciplinary Proceedings: If informal resolution is deemed insufficient, the faculty, staff, or administrator will submit a written description of the incident to the Dean (or designee) for consideration of formal discipline.

D.Pre-hearing Conference: The Dean (or designee) shall meet with the accused student and the student will be presented with the allegation and evidence/documentation. The Dean (or designee) will explain applicable policies and proposed disciplinary sanctions. Third party observers for both the student and the Dean (or designee) may be permitted. Third party observers may include legal counsel.

E.Response: The student will have the opportunity to respond to the allegations and be asked to enter a response of “no contest", "admit responsibility", or "deny responsibility" within 10 business days of the pre-hearing conference.

If the response is “no contest” the Dean (or designee) shall impose an appropriate

sanction.

If the response is “admit responsibility” the Dean (or designee) shall impose an appropriate sanction.

If the response is “deny responsibility”, either the student or the Dean (or designee) may request a hearing. If no hearing is requested, the Dean (or designee) shall make a determination of the facts and if the student violated any policies. This determination will be final and the Dean (or designee) shall impose an appropriate sanction.

F.Scheduling Formal Hearing: If a hearing is requested, its purpose shall be to weigh the evidence and determine if the student is responsible for the alleged misconduct. The date for the hearing will be confirmed within 30 business days of the time the Dean (or designee) has met with the accused student, although the hearing itself may occur beyond the thirty-day period. Written notice of the date, time, and place of the hearing, in addition to the final notice of allegations, will be given to the student a minimum of 10 business days in advance of the hearing.

G.Hearing Committee: An ad hoc committee, including faculty and student representation, will be appointed by the Dean (or designee).

H.Due Process: Hearings shall be held in accordance with generally accepted standards of procedural due process, including the student and the university both having: 1) the right to reasonable pre-hearing exchange of evidence; 2) the opportunity to present evidence and witnesses in an orderly manner; and 3) the right to examine and cross-examine witnesses and the right to counsel. The student may be represented by legal counsel, at his/her own expense, and shall notify the Dean (or designee) of legal counsel at least five (5) business days prior to the hearing. University Counsel will represent the University if the student is represented by legal counsel. Exceptions to this timeline may be made for good cause (see Section P below).

I.Hearing Procedures: The Chair of the hearing committee shall rule on all questions of procedure, the extent of pre-hearing exchange of evidence, the admissibility of evidence and the relevance of testimony. Evidence may be received of the sort upon which responsible persons are accustomed to rely on in the conduct of serious affairs, and is not restricted to evidence admissible under the strict rules of evidence of a court of law. The hearing shall be confidential and closed to the public unless both parties agree to an open hearing. When the hearing is closed to the public, the student is entitled to have one non-participant observer, in addition to legal counsel, present. When the hearing is open to the public, the Chair of the hearing committee may exclude spectators from the hearing room if deemed necessary for the orderly conduct of the hearing.

J.Burden of Proof: The University shall bear the burden of proof. Factual findings shall be based on a preponderance of the evidence. No inference shall be drawn from the silence of the student.

K.Recording of Hearing: The hearing shall be audio recorded, or at the option of the student or the University, a stenographer may be provided. The party requesting the stenographer is responsible for payment of the stenographer's services. If the non- requesting party would like a copy of the transcript, s/he shall be responsible for the cost of that copy. If the hearing is audio recorded, the student shall have access to a copy of the recording and may copy the recording at the student's own expense.

L.Committee Findings: After hearing the evidence the committee will determine by majority vote if the student is responsible for the alleged misconduct based on a review of the testimony, documentary evidence, if any, and a review of the credibility of the witnesses.

M.Written Summary: The hearing committee will provide the Dean (or designee) with a written report of the findings of fact and a record of the hearing within ten (10) business days of the close of the hearing. The student will also be provided a copy of this report. All audio recordings and transcripts pertaining to the hearing shall be kept by the University for a period of seven (7) years.

N.The Dean (or designee) shall issue a written decision and appropriate sanctions, if applicable, within ten (10) business days of receipt of the report from the hearing committee.

O.The student may make a written appeal to the Chancellor within ten (10) business days of the receipt of the Dean's (or designee) decision. An appeal may be granted or denied based upon: 1) whether there is new evidence that was not available at the time of the formal hearing, and if the new evidence is considered relevant; 2) whether procedures, as described above, were not followed and the failure to follow procedures resulted in a decision adverse to the student; and 3) whether the sanction imposed was too harsh given the finding of fact. The Chancellor shall issue a written decision within fifteen (15) business days of receipt of the appeal. Final authority for the administration of student discipline rests with the Chancellor. Exceptions to this timeline may be granted for good cause (see Section P below).

P.Upon establishment of good cause by either party to the hearing, the Dean of the School or Graduate Division may grant reasonable extension of the time limits specified in this procedure.

104.30

A student, as defined in Section 14.40 of these Policies, at one campus of the University, who is accused of violation of University policies or campus regulations on another campus of the University or at an official function of that campus, shall be subject to the disciplinary procedures of either the former or the latter campus as an outcome of conferral between designees of both campuses. The imposition of any recommendations for disciplinary sanctions arising from these procedures must be reviewed and approved by both campuses before the sanctions are imposed.

104.31

If an alleged violation of University policies occurs in connection with an official Universitywide function not on a campus, the student accused of the violation shall be subject to the disciplinary procedures of the campus at which the individual is a student, except in those cases in which the President directs otherwise.

104.40

The loss of University employment shall not be a form of discipline under these Policies. However, when student status is a condition of employment, the loss of student status will result in termination of the student's employment. This section is not intended to preclude the disclosure to other appropriate University officials of information relating to any student’s judicial records if that information may be reasonably construed to have bearing on the student’s suitability for a specific employment situation. This section is also not intended to preclude an employer from terminating a student’s employment outside the disciplinary process.

104.50

In imposing discipline other than Suspension or Dismissal, access to housing and health services shall not be restricted unless the act that occasioned the discipline is appropriately related to the restriction.

104.60

If as a result of an official campus appeal it is determined that the student was improperly disciplined, the Chancellor shall, if requested by the student, have the record of the hearing sealed, and have any reference to the disciplinary process removed from the student's record. In such case, the record of the hearing may be used only in connection with legal proceedings. The Chancellor also may take other reasonable actions to ensure that the status of the student's relationship to the University shall not be adversely affected.

104.70 [Rescinded January 1, 2016]

104.71 [Rescinded October 13, 2005]

104.80

Whether or not a hearing is conducted, campuses may provide written notice to a student that his or her alleged behavior may have violated University policy or campus regulations and that, if repeated, such behavior will be subject to the disciplinary process. Evidence of the prior alleged behavior as detailed in the written notice may be introduced in a subsequent disciplinary action in order to enhance the penalty.

104.90

Sanctions [for any violations of Section 102.00, Grounds for Discipline] may be enhanced where an individual was selected because of the individual's race, color, national or ethnic origin, citizenship, sex, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, pregnancy, marital status, ancestry, service in the uniformed services, physical or mental disability, medical condition, or perceived membership in any of these classifications.

105.00 Types of Student Disciplinary Action

When a student is found in violation of University policies or campus regulations, any of the following types of student disciplinary action may be imposed. Any sanction imposed should be appropriate to the violation, taking into consideration the context and seriousness of the violation.

105.1 Warning/Censure:

Written notice or reprimand to the student that a violation of specified University policies or campus regulations has occurred and that continued or repeated violations of University policies or campus regulations may be cause for further disciplinary action, normally in the form of Disciplinary Probation, and/or Loss of Privileges and Exclusion from Activities, Suspension, or Dismissal.

105.2 [Rescinded May 17, 2002]

105.3 Disciplinary Probation:

A status imposed for a specified period of time during which a student must demonstrate conduct that conforms to University standards of conduct. Conditions restricting the student's privileges or eligibility for activities may be imposed. Misconduct during the probationary period or violation of any conditions of the probation may result in further disciplinary action, normally in the form of Suspension or Dismissal.

105.4 Loss of Privileges and Exclusion from Activities:

Exclusion from participation in designated privileges and activities for a specified period of time. Violation of any conditions in the written Notice of Loss of Privileges and Exclusion from Activities, or violation of University policies or campus regulations during the period of the sanction may be cause for further disciplinary action, normally in the form of Probation, Suspension or Dismissal.

105.5 Suspension:

Termination of student status at the campus for a specified period of time with reinstatement thereafter certain, provided that the student has complied with all conditions imposed as part of the suspension and provided that the student is otherwise qualified for reinstatement.

Violation of the conditions of Suspension or of University policies or campus regulations during the period of Suspension may be cause for further disciplinary action, normally in the form of Dismissal.

105.6 Dismissal:

Termination of student status for an indefinite period. Readmission to the University shall require the specific approval of the Chancellor of the campus to which a dismissed student has applied. Readmission after dismissal may be granted only under exceptional circumstances.

105.7 Exclusion from Areas of the Campus or from Official University Functions:

Exclusion of a student as part of a disciplinary sanction from specified areas of the campus or other University-owned, -operated, or -leased facilities, or other facilities located on University property, or from official University functions, when there is reasonable cause for the University to believe that the student's presence there will lead to physical abuse, threats of violence, or conduct that threatens the health or safety of any person on University property or at official University functions, or other disruptive activity incompatible with the orderly operation of the campus.

105.8 Interim Suspension:

Exclusion from classes, or from other specified activities or areas of the campus, as set forth in the Notice of Interim Suspension, before final determination of an alleged violation. A student shall be restricted only to the minimum extent necessary when there is reasonable cause to believe that the student's participation in University activities or presence at specified areas of the campus will lead to physical abuse, threats of violence, or conduct that threatens the health or safety of any person on University property or at official University functions, or other disruptive activity incompatible with the orderly operation of the campus. A student placed on Interim Suspension shall be given prompt notice of the charges, the duration of the Interim Suspension, and the opportunity for a prompt hearing on the Interim Suspension. Interim Suspension shall be reviewed by the Chancellor within twenty-four hours. If a student is found to have been unjustifiably placed on Interim Suspension, the University is committed to a policy whereby reasonable efforts are taken to assist an individual who has been disadvantaged with respect to employment or academic status.

105.08a

Notice of interim suspension may be verbal but must be confirmed in writing by the Dean (or designee), after which he/she shall immediately inform the Chancellor (or designee). The notification to the Chancellor shall include the student's name, the reasons for imposing the interim suspension, and the student's address and phone number on file. The student is responsible for providing the University with current contact information. Within twenty-four hours of the imposition of the interim suspension, the Chancellor (or designee) shall affirm or over rule the interim suspension.

If the Chancellor (or designee) does not affirm the interim suspension by the end of the twenty-four hours, it shall be deemed void and the Chancellor (or designee) shall immediately inform the student at the student's phone number and/or email on file that the interim suspension is void. The student is responsible for providing the University with current contact information. Should the interim suspension be voided, such an action shall have no bearing on the University's disciplinary proceedings arising from the conduct which gave rise to the interim suspension. Any such disciplinary proceedings shall be conducted under the normal procedures provided in these policies.

If the Chancellor (or designee) affirms the suspension, the student shall be given prompt written notice that the interim suspension was upheld and that the student may request, in writing, a meeting with the Dean to challenge the interim suspension. The written request must be submitted within ten (10) business days from when the student was first notified of his/her interim suspension. Upon receipt of the request, the Dean will notify the student of the time, place, and date of the meeting to challenge the interim suspension. The Dean shall convene this meeting within seven (7) business days from the date of receipt of the request.

Convening the meeting shall not restrict the University's right to initiate disciplinary proceedings for the conduct which gave rise to the interim suspension. Any such disciplinary proceedings shall be conducted under the normal procedures provided for in these policies.

105.9 Restitution:

A requirement for restitution in the form of reimbursement may be imposed for expenses incurred by the University or other parties resulting from a violation of these policies. Such reimbursement may take the form of monetary payment or appropriate service to repair or otherwise compensate for damages. Restitution may be imposed on any student who alone, or through group or concerted activities, participates in causing the damages or costs.

105.10 Revocation of Awarding of Degree:

Subject to the concurrence of the Academic Senate, revocation of a degree obtained by fraud. Such revocation is subject to review on appeal by the Chancellor.

105.11 Other:

Other disciplinary actions, such as monetary fines, community service, or holds on requests for transcripts, diplomas, or other student records to be sent to third parties, as set forth in campus regulations.

106.00 Posting Suspension or Dismissal on Academic Transcripts

When, as a result of violations of the Policy on Student Conduct and Discipline, a student is suspended or dismissed, a notation that the discipline was imposed must be posted on the academic transcript for the duration of the suspension or dismissal. Thereafter, notations of Suspension or Dismissal reflected on a student’s transcript may be removed as set forth in campus regulations.

106.10

A notation of suspension will be removed from a student’s transcript at the conclusion of the suspension. A notation of dismissal will not be removed from a student’s transcript.
