During a Conduct Review the following sequence of events occurs:

  1. The Chairperson for the UCSD will open the proceedings and invite the committee members and the participants to introduce themselves;
  2. The Chairperson will establish some expectations for the Review (e.g. turn off cell phones, no recording devices, behave courteously and respectfully, etc.)
  3. The Chairperson will introduce the allegations as presented to them;
  4. The University's conduct officer will present the information that they have suggesting the allegations are true and accurate. This information can include documents, exhibits, and presentations from witnesses.
  5. The accused student(s) (sometimes called respondents) will present the information that they have suggesting the allegations are not true or inaccurate. This information can include documents, exhibits, and presentations from witnesses.
  6. The University's conduct officer can offer any information that may refute the information presented by the accused student(s).
  7. The University conduct officer will offer a closing summation and recommend any sanctions he/she believes are commensurate with the violation(s).
