What are my rights in a non-academic misconduct proceeding?

The Queen’s University non-academic misconduct process is different than either criminal or civil proceedings. You therefore have different rights than a person facing a criminal charge or a civil action.
Procedural fairness applies to non-academic misconduct hearings. This entitles respondents to:
- Be advised, in writing, of the allegation
- Have a case heard and decided by unbiased decision-makers
- Formal written notice of any adjudication date
- Disclosure of the evidence and information relied upon
- Seek the assistance of an advisor (including a lawyer)
- Present evidence and arguments in response to the complaint
- Be provided with written reasons for the decision
