Mediation for Harassment
After the Dean of Students has made a preliminary determination, the Dean may wish to suggest that the matter be submitted for mediation, or the Complainant and Respondent may themselves elect to submit the matter to mediation by mutually acceptable mediator.
If the Complainant is a member of the staff or the faculty and consents to adjudication of the Complaint by the Student Court, it will be adjudicated according to the procedures found in Section V of "The Student Justice System" in The Key; or, if the Complainant is a member of the staff or the faculty and does not consent to adjudication by the Student Court, the Dean of Students will forward copies of the Complaint to a special ad hoc committee comprising
The Associate Dean of the Faculty
The tenured faculty member of the Student Affairs
Committee with the longest service at the College
The Chairman of the Student Court
(The Complainant or Respondent may request that up to two members of the ad hoc Committee be replaced peremptorily. If the Complainant or Respondent objects to additional members as interested parties, the objection must be communicated to the Director of Human Resources within three days of the formation of the committee, and the Director of Human Resources will rule on the validity of the objection. If the objection is ruled valid, or in the case of the members excused peremptorily, substitutes will be appointed as follows: if the Associate Dean of the Faculty is excused, the Director of Human Resources will designate an exempt staff member as a substitute; if the tenured faculty member of the Student Affairs Committee is excused, either another tenured member of the Student Affairs Committee will serve or the tenured faculty member of the Appeals Committee having the longest service at the College will serve. If the Chairman of the Student Court is excused, the Dean of Students will designate as a substitute either the President of the Student Body or another member of the student court.)
