Questions and Answers
It is the goal of the?Conduct?Process to promote our Community Standards by responding to reports of student misconduct in a fair, consistent, and educational manner.
We too value integrity! There are several ways to get involved, including becoming a Resident Assistant or serving on the Conduct Board.
If you would like to report an incident or crime please call or visit ECPD (617-824-8555), the Student Conduct Office (617-824-8620), or any member of the Housing and Residence Life staff (617-824-8620). If the incident is an emergency or crime in progress call ECPD at 617-824-8888.
When you call ECPD and/or the Housing and Residence Life Staff, simply tell them that you would like to remain anonymous. If you would like to report concerning behavior occurring in your suite, but don’t want your suitemates to know, call the RA on duty and explain the situation. In any event the Office of Community Standards & Student Conduct will take all measures to keep any complaining party’s name private.
- Follow All Directions Provided By Staff:?Student and professional staff are here to maintain the safety & security of the community. It is important that you follow all directions they provide.
- Remain Calm: The incident you were involved in will be resolved, however the resolution might not happen immediately. You will be contacted by a professional staff member, which will provide you an opportunity to begin to resolve the matter.
- Check your Email: If the incident report suggests a possible policy violation, you will receive a “Hearing Notification” via your Emerson College email in the following business days. This letter will identify a meeting date and time that you can attend so that you and the hearing officer can begin to resolve the matter.
This letter will outline the Community Standards you are reported to have violated. These reported violations are referred to as charges. The letter will also provide the date and time of a meeting with a Hearing Officer. ?At this meeting, your Administrative Hearing, you will be given the opportunity to review the reported information and provide your account of the incident.
The?Office of Community Standards & Student Conduct receives and reviews Incident Report. If the report suggests?possible Community Standards violations, those reported?violations are assigned as charges. The charges are all outlined as violations in the Code of Community Standards. Receiving a Hearing Notification does not mean we believe you are responsible for the charges. The purpose of the hearing is to determine responsibility of the charges.
If you fail to appear at your scheduled meeting/ hearing, the College reserves the right to resolve the incident and assign sanctions, when appropriate, without the benefit of your input. ?Should the time conflict with an academic commitment, you may contact the hearing officer to reschedule your meeting/hearing.
Take a minute to read through the Code of??Community Standards. All Emerson students are expected to abide by all College policies. Ignorance of a policy is not an excuse for a violation.
If you do not agree with a hearing outcome, please reach out to the hearing officer and they will be happy to discuss their decision making process with you.
You can appeal any decision made in the disciplinary process. Appeals are granted if you can demonstrate that there has been a denial of a fair disciplinary process in the hearing of a case and/or if you can introduce substantive new evidence not available at the time of the hearing. If an appeal is granted, a new hearing will be held. Excessive sanctioning is not sufficient grounds for an appeal. More information is listed in the Appeals section of the Code of Community Standards.?
If you are found responsible for violating the Alcohol and Other Drugs Policy, it is typical for the Office of Community Standards &?Student Conduct to send a notification to your parents/guardians. The notification includes a copy of your decision letter. Play it safe, keep your parents in the loop.
The Office of Community Standards &?Student Conduct oversees a student’s discipline record. This record, which includes Incident Reports, Hearing Notifications, Hearing Outcome letters, and other related documents, are typically retained seven (7) years from the date of the time the student graduates or withdraws from the College. Generally, information from the record is not released without the written consent of the student. Student conduct records are maintained separately from academic records.
If you have a hold on your account, contact the Office of Community Standards &?Student Conduct. Typically, this means that you have an incomplete sanction on record or you have an unresolved incident.
All fines can be paid in Suite 411 of the Walker Building. Fines can be paid in cash or check only. Checks are to be made payable to Emerson College. Please remember to pay a fine you need your decision letter stating the fine amount and the case number.
Property Confiscated by the Office of Housing and Residence Life: Reach out to your RD to schedule a time to retreive your confiscated items. When you meet, you will need to show your Emerson ID and sign a form indicating that you agree to immediately remove the confiscated item from campus. Items may be returned when the residence hall closes (i.e. Thanksgiving, Winter or Spring Breaks; conclusion of academic terms) or once the matter is adjudicated through the College’s conduct system. Unclaimed Items will be discarded at the conclusion of the academic year. Items confiscated during summer housing will be discarded at the conclusion of the summer term.
Property Confiscated the Emerson College Police Department: Confiscated items or substances that do not violate any laws but are prohibited under College policy can be returned to the student, in accordance with ECPD policy, after the correlating student conduct case has been adjudicated through the College’s conduct system. Items prohibited by law will not be returned to the student and will be secured and/or destroyed in accordance with the law and/or ECPD policy. Please contact ECPD at 617-824-8555 for more information.
