University Scope and Response

Violation of these policies may result in disciplinary action up to and including suspension or dismissal, without refund of tuition and other amounts paid.  The restorative disciplinary process of the university is set forth in FPU student handbooks, the faculty or staff handbooks and the Title IX Discrimination, Harassment & Sexual Misconduct Policy.  The university reserves the right to remove a student/employee from particular settings or from all university activity pending the outcome of the disciplinary process, depending on the nature and extent of the disruption or threat.

Appropriate representatives of Fresno Pacific University will promptly investigate and pursue the resolution of any complaint of discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking.  The university reserves the right to respond with whatever measures it deems appropriate to prevent policy violations and preserve the safety and well-being of its students, employees and visitors.

While the university expects all students and employees to meet the behavioral standards, it recognizes that some students or employees possess medical or psychological conditions that may affect functioning within the behavioral expectations of the university.  The university will comply with all the requirements imposed by law to provide reasonable accommodation and/or appropriate academic adjustment for those with disabilities.  If medical or psychological intervention is needed to assist the student/employee in meeting the behavioral expectations, the university may choose to offer the student/employee the opportunity to comply with an intervention plan as a part of or complete substitute for disciplinary action.  The student/employee may also be placed on a contract that identifies the behavioral concern, the accompanying behavioral expectations and the length of contract.  If the student/employee does not meet the behavioral expectations after assenting to an intervention plan or if the student/employee violates the contract, the university may take disciplinary action up to, and including, suspension or dismissal/separation.
