Summary of Documents


Documentation is the tool that brings the student conduct process together. Maintaining precise written records for reference and clarity adds a professional dimension to the conduct process followed at Cumberland University. Effective documentation is vital because it enables a conduct team to make well-informed, timely and consistent decisions.

 


2.

Incident Report


All disciplinary situations begin with this report, which requires as much specific information as possible in order to provide a thorough, accurate snapshot of what occurred. This report should be completed as soon after the incident occurs as possible. All applicable sections should be completed electronically (and by any Security officer involved), including the signature of the one filing the report. Whenever possible, the residence life staff needs to have all persons involved complete an incident report as well. This will help when trying to remember specifics, or for later reference should the student appeal a decision. Anyone may complete this document.
