For each Stage 2 case, the chair of the GAIC will
convene a hearing panel of GAIC members within
28 calendar days of receiving referral from the
Associate Dean. A quorum is required for a
hearing to proceed and consists of five people,
including the chair, at least two Faculty members,
and two students.
The Associate Dean for Graduate Academic
Affairs or designee will serve as a non-voting
member of the hearing panel. The GAIC chair
shall rule on all questions of hearing procedure
and evidence, including but not limited to the
order of presentation of evidence, admissibility of
evidence, applicability of regulations to a
particular case, and relevance of testimony.
