1. Anyone may file a complaint regarding student conduct. A complaint shall be prepared in writing and directed to the Assistant Dean of Student for SCCS, Brian Foley (bfoley@temple.edu). Complaints made directly to other campus resources (Campus Safety Services, University Housing and Residential Life, the Wellness Resource Center, Title IX Coordinator, Faculty, etc.) may be forwarded to the SCCS for review.  Any complaint should be submitted as soon as possible after the event takes place.

2. The Student Conduct Administrator may conduct an investigation to determine if the complaint has merit and/or if it can be disposed of administratively by mutual consent of the parties involved on a basis acceptable to the Student Conduct Administrator. Such disposition shall be final and there shall be no subsequent proceedings.

The Student Conduct Administrator is responsible for determining whether to charge a Student or a Student Organization with a violation of the Student Code.  Notification of conduct charges will be sent by e-mail to the Accused Student’s official Temple University e-mail address.  In the case of a Student Organization, the notice will be sent to the organization’s elected student President’s official Temple University e-mail address.  In sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking cases, the notification of conduct charges will be sent by e-mail to the victim’s official Temple University e-mail address.  Reasonable efforts will be made to schedule a Student Conduct Board Hearing not more than 30 business days after the Student or the Student Organization has been notified. Time limits for scheduling may be extended at the discretion of the Student Conduct Administrator.
