An individual whose behavior or conduct poses a threat to the health, safety, welfare, or academic experience of members of the College community may be asked to modify their behavior or leave College property. If the individual refuses to comply, an authorized College official may issue an administrative ban notice.
College Police may also issue trespass notices when they have detained or removed a person from College property in the course of their legitimate law enforcement activities.
4.2 Scope and Duration
The scope, duration, and other stipulations of the ban or trespass notice must be proportional to the underlying misconduct and must be narrowly tailored to protect the College community from further misconduct. The duration of a ban or trespass notice is one year unless otherwise specified within the written notice, or as modified during appeal, or withdrawn in writing by an authorized College official.
When a student or employee’s behavior is disruptive to College operations or poses a significant risk of harm to the campus, College Police may require the individual to leave for one business day and will report the incident to the appropriate Authorized College Official to determine whether the issuance of a trespass notice or other action is necessary.
An administrative ban or trespass notice must state:
- the area to which the notice applies
- the dates that the notice is in effect
- how the notice may be appealed
- a warning that violation of the notice may result in further disciplinary action, up to and including expulsion or termination of employment, and/or arrest
An administrative ban or trespass notice must be delivered to the person who is the subject of the notice in writing, by letter, e-mail or personally delivered.
If feasible, an authorized college official who wishes to issue an administrative ban notice should first consult with the Office of Associate System Counsel.
An individual who has received an administrative ban or trespass notice may appeal the notice in writing within five business days to the College official indicated in the notice. The appeal must include a complete explanation for the conduct that led to the ban or trespass notice, the basis for the desire to be on College property, and any other information the person wishes to be considered.
A written response to the appeal will be issued within ten business days. That decision will be considered final.
4.5 Consequences for Violation of Trespass Notice
A current student or employee who violates an administrative ban or trespass notice may face disciplinary consequences up to and including expulsion or termination of employment. Disciplinary procedures shall be in accord with the Code of Student Conduct or the applicable staff or faculty disciplinary procedures.
College Police may arrest a person who refuses to leave College property after being issued a criminal trespass notice.
Authorized College officials must notify College Police in writing when they issue an administrative ban notice and provide a copy of the notice to the Police and the relevant campus Provost. College Police will maintain a listing of banned individuals.
When an authorized college official lifts or modifies the ban, they shall provide written notice to College Police and relevant campus provost so that records may be updated.
College officials who have a legitimate interest in the incident will be notified on a case-by-case basis.
