Dangerous and Threatening Behavior
If a student has engaged in or has threatened to engage in behavior that endangers self or others or which causes significant property damage, or directly and substantially impedes the lawful activities of others, and there is reason to believe that the threatened or actual behavior is caused by or derives from a psychological, emotional, or substance abuse problem, the Dean of Students may refer the student for a mandatory psychiatric, psychological, and/or substance abuse evaluation at any time during the pendency of disciplinary procedures. Pending completion of the evaluation, the Dean of Students may bar the student from classes, University housing, or University property. The parents or guardians of a dependent student may be informed of his/her action. Following completion of the evaluation, the student’s status at the University will be reviewed by the Dean of Students, who may require that the student comply with a recommended treatment plan before the student is permitted to resume normal activities. The Dean may also require a leave-of-absence from the campus.
