University Disciplinary Procedures D.1 Introduction A student (or student organization) who is alleged to have violated policies of the NSU Code of Student Conduct and Academic Responsibility and/or any other university policies and procedures (other than the University Title IX/Sexual Misconduct Policy) may be charged under the NSU Student Disciplinary Process. Conduct actions relating to fraternity and sorority student organizations may be addressed in accordance with the student conduct procedures detailed in the NSU Fraternity and Sorority Life Manual, at the discretion of the dean of students. A complaint may be made by any member of the university and/or nonuniversity community. The process through which students (or the student organization) are held accountable to university policies and procedures is intended to promote a better understanding of the university community and acceptable behavior for students who are a part of that community. With that in mind, it should be noted that the following processes occur only between the university and each individual student involved in an investigation into possible violations. Parents, friends, significant others, and/or attorneys are not permitted to participate in, or observe, the disciplinary process.
