    • If no evidence of a violation is found, then the case is dismissed and the process ends.
    • If evidence of a violation is found, proceed to Step 3
  • Step 3: Conference is held 
  • Step 4:  One of three things can happen after the Conference
    • The case is dismissed if there is new evidence unavailable at the time of the investigation and the process ends; or
    • The case is resolved with a resolution agreement if the accused student accepts the charge(s) and recommended sanction(s); or
