Authority

40.  The authority for resolving disputes under the Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities and Conduct is vested in the College President and designated to student conduct hearing bodies enumerated in Section 51 of this Code.  This authority extends to all students: graduate, undergraduate, full-time, part-time, on the main campus and at extension sites.

     The Regulations and Procedures for Maintaining Public Order on Campuses of the State University of New York also includes prohibited conduct which may be dealt with under the disciplinary procedures of the Regulations for Public Order.  When the Code and the Regulations for Public Order overlap, the procedures in the Code will generally be followed, unless the President invokes the Regulations for Public Order in a specific instance.

41.  Students or student organizations may petition to the Dean of Students for assistance in resolving conflict on issues that are not before any student conduct body and where no statement of charges alleging violation of the Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities and Conduct has been filed.
