Interim suspension.

In certain circumstances, the vice president for student affairs, or a designee, may impose an interim suspension prior to the university conduct board hearing or at any time prior to the university's final order.
(1) Interim suspension may be imposed only in situations involving an immediate danger to the health, safety or welfare of:
(a) Any part of the university community or public at large; or
(b) The student's own physical safety and well-being.
(2) Conduct that creates an ongoing disruption of, or interference with, the operations of the university and that prevents other students, employees, or invitees from members of the university community from completing their duties as employees or students, is conduct harmful to the welfare of members of the university community.
(3) During the interim suspension, a student may be denied access to the residence halls, and/or to the campus (including classes), and/or all other university activities or privileges for which the student might otherwise be eligible, as the vice president for student affairs or designee may determine to be appropriate.
(4) The vice president for student affairs or designee ordering an interim suspension prepares a brief written decision containing the reasons for the decision (both the factual basis and the conclusions as to why those facts constitute a violation of the standards of conduct for students), and the policy reasons for the interim suspension. The vice president of student affairs or designee sends copies of the decision by personal delivery, by regular U.S. mail, or by electronic mail to all persons or offices bound by it (including, at a minimum, the suspended student and the office of student conduct).
(5) The interim suspension does not replace the regular hearing process, which shall proceed to hearing as quickly as feasible, ordinarily within five working days of the notice of the interim suspension where the accused student has not consented to a longer time frame.
