One of the fundamental rights afforded students in the Student Code of Conduct is a right to an Advisor. Upon request, the University will provide information regarding a University trained Advisor, which is a University employee trained from Student Conduct & Community Standards about the student conduct process. At their own expense, the Complainant and Respondent may choose a person not employed by the University to serve as an Advisor (e.g., friend, attorney). The role of an Advisor is limited to assisting, advising, and/or supporting a Complainant or Respondent during the student conduct process.
In order for the University to communicate with an outside Advisor about a student’s educational record, the student must submit an Authorization to Release Information.
