Advisors and Support Persons
Complainants and Respondents (Participants, jointly) participating in CCR processes have the right to have an Advisor, which can also be an attorney, and/or a Support Person. Participants are responsible for identifying their own advisors and support persons; however, if a matter involving students moves to a University Conduct Board process, the students may select from a list of advisors who have specific expertise about that process. Advisors and support persons serve different roles in the process, as follows:
- An Advisor provides guidance and assistance to Participants. This guidance may involve assisting a Participant with submitting a complaint, responding to allegations, reviewing evidence, or preparing for a sanctioning or disciplinary process. An Advisor is often a person whom the Participant trusts for guidance, such as a family member, advisor, or attorney. Advisors with specific expertise about the University Conduct Board process for students are also available through the Office of the Dean of Students.
- A Support Person provides emotional support to Participants. A Support Person is often a friend, family member, or victim advocate.
Participants may select their own Advisors and/or Support Persons; however, Participants are encouraged to select individuals who are not witnesses in their matter, to preserve the integrity of the investigation.
Please identify your Advisor using the “Advisor Identification/Release” online form below. Advisors will need to complete the below “Advisor Attestation” online form below. These forms are not required for victim advocates or Support Persons.
