Frequently Asked Questions

What are the penalties for sexual misconduct?

Under Title IX, when the College learns of sexual misconduct, it is required to eliminate the behavior, remedy the effects, and prevent the recurrence.  Within this context, the consequences for violating the Sexual Misconduct Policy vary based on the details of the situation, and the final outcome will look different in different cases.  At the extreme ends, a student may be given a warning or may be expelled for their behavior.  Where there is physical force, emotional trauma, or alcohol use/abuse, a student will most likely be referred for relevant counseling or support services to address those issues.

For more information about possible sanctions, see the CBSM Hearing Outcomes and Sanctions section of the website.
