Hearing Panels
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.
