Judicial Affairs involves the processing of student disciplinary complaints – academic or non-academic – through the Office of the University Secretariat and the Academic Integrity Office.
Under Bylaw 31, academic misconduct is defined as: “actions that demonstrate a lack of integrity as defined as a lack of adherence to this University’s bylaws and policies and that touch upon instruction, evaluation, curriculum, admission and other matters that affect the academic standing of a student.”
Non-academic misconduct is defined as “all other actions that demonstrate a lack of integrity as defined as a lack of adherence to this University’s bylaws and policies and that do not fit under the definition of academic misconduct.”
The filing of a complaint is the first step in the Judicial Affairs process. The second step involves the investigation of the complaint, followed by either the informal disposition of the complaint or the laying of a formal charge.
Information about the complaints that are processed through this system can be found here, either in summary form (under “Cases and Sanctions”) or, for cases that reach a University disciplinary tribunal, under “Disciplinary Decisions.”
