While participating in formal hearings, complainants and respondents shall have the following rights:
a. The right to a written notice of charges.
b. The right to a list of witnesses who will be asked by the University to testify at a hearing as well as the opportunity to review all written evidence.
c. The right to present evidence, or to call witnesses not already called by the University to testify or submit written statements. Additional witnesses must have the prior approval of the Director of Student Conduct or chair of the Council. It is the responsibility of the accused student to notify any additional witnesses not called by the University of the time, date, and location of the hearing.
d. The right to suggest questions for the conduct officer or chair of the Council may pose to a witness. The officer or chair of the Council has the discretion to decline to ask a question if he or she deems it not relevant.
e. The right to assistance from an advisor who is a current member of the Emory community (faculty, staff, or student).
f. The right to be present at the hearing until such time as the conduct officer or the council retires to deliberate.
An accused student may elect to waive some or all of these procedures and rules. Such an election must be made in writing to the Office of Student Conduct. If waived, the student may not file an appeal based on the ground that the waived right was not provided.
