You have the right to an adviser.
An adviser can help you understand the conduct process, obtain information, contact witnesses, accompany you to meetings, and advise you about your rights and any defenses. An adviser can also explain the possible consequences to you, including sanctions and the impact on your student conduct record.
The Office of Student Advocacy provides free professional services to currently registered eligible students. The Office of Student Advocacy is provided by the ASUO, the UO student government, and is supported by the incidental fee. Students are not required to use the services of the Office of Student Advocacy and may obtain assistance from an attorney or other person of their choice at their own expense, or proceed on their own.
If you would like to meet with an adviser, be sure to leave enough time to do so when setting up an appointment with the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards.
Things you should know:
- You must comply with the Notice of Allegation email that you received and contact the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards within the stated timeframe and arrange an appointment. If you do not comply, you may lose your rights and could face serious sanctions.
- You are entitled to obtain a copy of the information on which an allegation is based, including an incident report or other written report provided by a complainant.
- When making an appointment with the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards you are not required to take the next available appointment. You are required, however, to call and arrange an appointment within the time stated in the email you received.
- You are entitled to bring an adviser with you to all meetings and may consult with an adviser before responding to emails or phone messages.
