Faculty are responsible for reporting violations of the CWI Code of Conduct, syllabi, program guidelines, and any other applicable policies and procedures. If it unclear whether or not a behavior was a violation or needs to be reported, contact the Academic Integrity Board. If a behavior resulted in a sanction or consequence, it is a violation that must be reported.

Reporting violations serves two functions. First, reporting helps the college ensure students have due process and protects the rights of both students and employees. Second, reporting helps the college watch for and act on repeated or escalating behavior.

Below are the following types of violations and links to the reporting forms.

  • Academic Misconduct is reported when there is a concern of academic integrity such as cheating, plagiarism, and minor disruptions in the classroom. Faculty are asked to resolve low level academic concerns and report the outcome in the Academic Misconduct form. The Academic Integrity Board Chair will follow up with a formal letter to the involved student(s). This affirms we are providing appropriate due process for students. For multiple violations of the same type, or levels of academic violations that are moderate to severe, a report should be filed, and the Academic Integrity Board will handle the case.
  • Non-Academic is reported when there is a concern of an alleged policy violation due to behaviors that are not in line with our Student Code of Conduct. Student Conduct can occur in and out of the classroom.
  • Title IX (Sexual Misconduct) and Respectful Community allegations involve incidents where discrimination may have occurred. All CWI employees are responsible reporters when it involves allegations pertaining to Title IX. By completing the Title IX and Respectful Community form, you uphold your reporting responsibilities. The form is routed to our Title IX Coordinator and Deputies who will work with the student(s) to provide resources and work to stop the behavior from occurring again. Reporting Title IX does not automatically trigger an investigative process. We work to ensure the student is informed and has control in the process. Exceptions are when weapons, physical violence, a repeat offender, or children are involved. However, the complainant (victim/survivor) will continue to determine how involved in the process they wish to be.

All conduct reporting forms can be found on the Care and Student Conduct web page.

The Code of Conduct and explanation of conduct processes are available in the Student Handbook.
