Status of Student During the Disciplinary Process

At any stage of the disciplinary process including the investigation stage, the status of a student accused of misconduct shall not be altered, nor shall his/her right to be present on campus or attend classes be suspended, except as deemed necessary by the President (or his/her designee) to insure the physical and/or emotional safety of the members of the College community or to protect College property. However, during this time the Dean may impose on the accused student prohibitions against contact with an accusing party, other witnesses, or certain other members of the Bates community, may require the accused student to reside in a location other than his/her ordinary residence, and may take such other steps as the Dean determines to be necessary to protect the accused student, the accusing party, witnesses, other members of the Bates community, and/or the community at large. All actions taken pending a hearing must be documented in writing to the accused student with a copy to the Co-Chairs of the Student Conduct Committee and must include a rationale.
