Quinnipiac recognizes that its philosophy is linked with the protection of its students, faculty, staff and property. The vice president and dean of students or designee has the authority to issue interim measures when there is a threat to safety or due to the severity of the underlying incident. 

Interim Conduct Suspensions 

A student organization may not hold or participate in any events during the interim conduct suspension. The suspension is inclusive of all members at all events including social, philanthropic, sisterhood/brotherhood, educational, as well as general chapter or organization business/adviser meetings, practices, and/or competitions, or any other event a reasonable observer would deem a student organization event. 

Requests for any organizational activities must be made in writing to the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards and approved in writing by the staff. The student organization will be notified following the investigation and/or the Student Organization Conduct Process of its status moving forward. 

No Contact Orders 

The No Contact Order is a written directive on behalf of the university halting communication between individual students or between all members of a student organization during the course of an investigation or following the outcome of an investigation. 

This applies on campus as well as off campus and includes any communication including but not limited to: in-person communication, physical contact (with person or property), telephone calls, voicemail, text and email messages, and all electronic communications including social media, letters, parcels and notes. Failure to comply with the directive may result in a violation of the Code of Conduct. Students will be notified at the conclusion of the student organization investigation and/or student organization conduct meeting should there be a change of status in the No Contact Order. 

Other Interim Measures

Other interim measures may be implemented depending on the circumstances of each unique incident or report.
