When the Dean and/or the Department Chair has been informed by the instructor that you have been suspected of academic misconduct, the Dean and/or the Department Chair will:
• Notify you in writing;
• Provide you with a copy of the Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters, 1995; and,
• Provide you with an opportunity to discuss the matter.
In cases where the Department Chair and the course instructor are present at the Dean’s meeting with you, the Dean or his/her designate, will conduct the interview. You are entitled to seek advice and be accompanied by counsel. You are not obliged to say anything at the meeting, and if you do make a statement of admission, it may be receivable in evidence at a Tribunal hearing.
