Violations of Law
Violations of federal, state, and local laws are incorporated as offenses under the Student Honor and Community Standards. Such violations of law occurring either on or off campus may result in the initiation of conduct proceedings, especially if college leadership determines that the behavior has a direct impact on the educational mission and interests of the college. Colorado College may initiate conduct proceedings against a student charged with violating federal, state, or local laws without regard to the existence or possibility of civil or criminal legal proceedings. It is the policy of Colorado College to pursue timely resolution through its conduct proceedings, rather than to delay campus proceedings until the outcome of criminal and/or civil proceedings.
