The procedures identified above provide for disciplinary action against anyone found responsible for violating this policy following a formal investigation. The nature of the disciplinary action will be based on the preponderance of the evidence uncovered during the investigatory process and will take into account several factors, including the nature and severity of the incident, the sanctions available pursuant to the Disciplinary Procedures outlined in Section VIII above, and any past disciplinary history of the respondent. For students, sanctions may include, but are not limited to, restrictions on a course or program, probation, suspension, or expulsion. (Chapter UWS 17.10 provides a more comprehensive list of potential sanctions against students.) For employees, sanctions may range from a written warning to dismissal from employment. For program participants, sanctions may include restrictions upon participation in or exclusion from the program. For visitors to campus, sanctions may include a ban from portions or all of campus.
