Interim Suspension

A student who is facing a charge of a serious offense, even before the adjudication of that charge by the appropriate hearing body, may be suspended temporarily from participation in University activities if, in the judgment of the President of the University or his or her designee, the student is a danger to himself or herself, or to the safety of persons or property on University premises, or poses a threat of immediate disruptive interference with the normal conduct of University activities. Subject to the emergency nature of the situation, the President or his or her designee shall afford the student the opportunity to challenge the evidence and shall make every effort to have the hearing at the earliest practicable time.
