Section XI: Post-Panel Review Procedures

A. CVRP Review. Upon receipt of an Honor Council’s written finding of responsibility, the Director of CVRP, in consultation with the Dean of the school with jurisdiction, will commence a review of the case, including the case documents, panel notes, rationale of the panel, and, if necessary, the proceeding recording.

  1. If the Director finds that the judgment and/or sanctions/educational measures were discriminatory or that material prejudicial procedural error occurred that significantly affected the outcome, the Director can set aside the judgment and, if the error can be corrected by referring the matter for a new proceeding, order that the matter be reconsidered.
  2. If the Director finds that the sanction is impractical or cannot be implemented under law or university policy, the Director can modify the sanction.
  3.  Sanction Modification. The Director’s decision to modify the sanction will be provided in writing to the Respondent and the Chair of the Honor Council; the student can appeal the decision to modify the sanction. The Director will summarize the outcome of the case in an official letter to the Respondent.
