3. Interim Actions
This section describes the procedures used in the event that the College becomes aware of information that would indicate that it needs to take immediate action to protect the CWI Community or its members.
3.1. Interim Actions
3.1.1. If the Dean of Students, has reasonable cause to believe a student poses a serious and direct threat to the health or safety of one or more members of the campus community, or to the continued effective operation of the College, an interim action may be imposed to mitigate or remove the threat. Any interim action is temporary and shall only be enforced until the completion of adjudication. Interim actions against a respondent to a formal complaint under Title IX, other than emergency removal, shall not include any disciplinary sanction until a final determination regarding responsibility.
3.1.2. Issuance of Interim Actions
220.127.116.11. Upon being made aware of a situation which may warrant an interim action, following an individualized safety and risk analysis, the Dean of Students may alter or suspend the rights of a student. The Dean of Students will base the decision on all available information and determine what action, if any, is appropriate to mitigate or remove a serious and direct threat to the health or safety of one or more members of the campus community, or to the continued effective operation of the College.
18.104.22.168. The decision to suspend the rights of a student for an interim period will be communicated in writing to the student and will become effective upon notification to the student, regardless of any meeting or communication which may occur prior to the issuance of the interim action. This notification will include information as to the reason for the interim action, including the date, time, and location of the alleged behavior, if available. The notice will also include information on the respondent’s right to challenge the interim action. Failure or refusal to accept, access or read the notification will not invalidate or postpone this action, alter the date and time of any scheduled proceedings or be considered as a basis for appeal.
3.1.3. The Dean of Students may place any appropriate restriction, limitation or condition on a student’s activity, up to and including banning a student from any or all property owned, operated, leased or controlled by the College; limiting a student’s access to a subset of College property or services; or requiring or prohibiting certain specified activities.
3.1.4. Challenging an Interim Action
22.214.171.124. Upon receiving notice of and interim action, a student may challenge the interim action at any time. The notice of interim action will include information on how a student may request a meeting with the Dean of Students to make such a challenge.
126.96.36.199. Upon being notified of that an Interim action is being challenged, a meeting shall be scheduled within two days of the request being made, unless otherwise requested by the student.
188.8.131.52. During the meeting, the student will be provided an opportunity to share information and evidence which may be relevant to the decision to issue an interim action. The Dean of Students may ask questions of the student as well. Witnesses or other testimony are not permitted at this meeting.
184.108.40.206. The student is permitted to bring an advisor of choice to the meeting, or may request that an advisor be appointed when notifying the Dean of Students of their challenge.
220.127.116.11. The Dean of Students may determine that the interim action is appropriate in light of the information presented in the challenge, or may determine that the interim action is no longer appropriate and modify it or remove it.
18.104.22.168. The decision of the Dean of Students is final and is not subject to appeal.
3.1.5. Interim actions shall remain in effect until a final decision has been made on the complaint or until the decision is altered by the Dean of Students.
3.2. Interim Actions for Organizations
If the Dean of Students, has reasonable cause to believe that an organization, or the actions undertaken by an organization, pose a serious and direct threat to the health or safety of one or more members of the campus community, or to the continued effective operation of the College, an interim action may be imposed to mitigate or remove the threat. The procedures used shall be the same as those in Article 3.1. and the President of the organization shall represent the organization throughout the process.
