University Committee Student-at-Large (Various Committees)
University Committee Descriptions:
The OEO/AA office is responsible for providing a fair, thorough, and impartial process for investigating complaints of discrimination at the University of Utah, including sexual misconduct (sexual harassment, sexual violence, etc.).
In matters involving students, the OEO/AA conducts the investigation, collects evidence, and makes findings about what happened based on that evidence, and whether or not what happened was a violation of University Policies. Once we’ve made a finding, we send that report to the Office of the Dean of Students, who, in cases where we find there has been a policy violation, then makes recommendations for appropriate sanctions. Either party (the complainant, or the respondent) can request a hearing to review the OEO/AA findings, or the sanction if they disagree with either or both.
he students called to serve on these committees would serve with a combination of staff and faculty from a wide variety of departments and colleges on campus. During a hearing, students will review evidence presented at the hearing, from both sides of the complaint, and deliberate with the other hearing committee members to come to a decision regarding the findings and the sanctions.
