When a formal complaint is filed alleging a violation of the SUNY Discrimination Policy, a panel of three members is drawn from the standing Tripartite Committee to act as an impartial judicial body. One panel member is chosen by the Complainant and one by the Respondent. The third member is chosen by the two already-chosen members. The selected Tripartite Panel will be the sole fact-finder in regard to the complaint. It will examine the evidence and then send its findings and recommendation to the college president.
Some complaints lodged against students, including sexual violence allegations, may be adjudicated by the Office of Community Standards, pursuant to the Student Code of Conduct.
