No contact orders

When a verbal or physical altercation, sexual misconduct, stalking, harassment, discrimination, retaliation, bullying, or hazing has been alleged, or when otherwise deemed appropriate under the circumstances, the Dean of Student Affairs or her designee has the authority to issue no contact orders to the persons involved. A no contact order is used to restrict encounters between individuals. Refusal to adhere to the order after written or verbal notification of its terms is prohibited and violations of the no contact order may result in disciplinary action through the Honor Board.

No contact orders typically prohibit the parties subject to the order from having direct or indirect contact, including but not limited to email, mail, text messages, social media, or telephone. A no contact order may also result in mandated changes to a student’s academic schedule, on-campus employment, room assignment or participation in campus events or activities.
