SARP Response to Covid Violations
Ely Center 102
Gallaudet is fully committed to returning to campus for the 2021-2022 academic year and moving forward safely by following public health guidance. While Gallaudet University is relying on each member of the community to respect and adhere to the University COVID-19 directives including the Gallaudet Together Student Pledge. The University will have limited tolerance for actions that do not demonstrate commitment to interpersonal care, personal accountability, and community values during the COVID-19 pandemic. Not following any COVID-19 directive and/or the pledge will be taken seriously and considered as violations of the Student Code of Conduct.
Students who demonstrate a willful pattern of non-compliance, such as exposing university members to demonstrable health risk, or engage in behavior that includes additional violations, such as disorderly conduct or threatening the health and safety of others, may result in additional charges against them, including the possibility of residence hall relocation, or an interim suspension from the University or residence halls, pending the resolution of the charges(s) with Student Accountability and Restorative Practices (SARP).
The following will provide some examples of behaviors contradictory with the COVID-19 directives, and the SARP responses to such violations.
Some examples of behaviors include:
Category 1 and some Category 2 incidents may be resolved using a restorative practices approach, which will be a 1:1 conversation with an assigned staff member from Health and Wellness Programs, and online educational modules or courses.
Student Conduct Process
Some Category 2, all Category 3, and repeated violations will beresolved through the student conduct process. Please refer to (will add link ASAP) for more information.
Sanctions assigned for Category 2 violations resolved through this process may include, but are not limited to:
When a student is found responsible for violations under this process, the SARP office will consider the nature of the violation, the circumstances surrounding the violation, the student’s prior conduct history (if any), the community impact of the behavior, and sanctions assigned to previous findings for similar violations.
Sanctions assigned for Category 3 violations resolved through this process may include, but are not limited to:
Additionally, more significant sanctions may be assigned when incidents involve multiple violations of the Student Code of Conduct, in addition to public health-related expectations.
Gallaudet University, chartered in 1864, is a private university for deaf and hard of hearing students.
