Student Violations of University Non-Academic Rules and Regulations

Student violations of University nonacademic rules and regulations should be reported by filing a Campus Incident Complaint Form (CICF) with the Office of Student Life at 20 Benevolent Street. Once an incident is reported through a CICF, the matter will proceed in accordance with the nonacademic disciplinary procedures as appropriate. Penalities that can be imposed through a University Disciplinary Council Hearing or an Administrative Hearing include reprimand, probation, deferred suspension, suspension, or expulsion. Penalties that can be imposed through a Dean’s Hearing include reprimand, probation, and deferred suspension. Penalities that can be imposed through a Peer Community Standards Board Hearing include reprimand and probation.

While the Office of Student Life is the administrative office designated by Brown University to receive such complaints, Campus Incident Complaint Forms can also be obtained from Public Safety at 75 Charlesfield Street, the Residential Life Offices at Wayland Arch, or through Resident Counselors. A CICF can only be filed with the Office of Student Life.

Violations of Brown’s student code may or may not constitute a violation of criminal laws, thus the filing of a CICF is not synonymous with the filing of a criminal report with Brown Public Safety. If you believe a criminal act has occurred and you wish to proceed through the Rhode Island criminal courts, you must file a criminal report with Brown Public Safety or the Providence Police Department. Brown does not currently have any procedures for a person to report crimes on a voluntary, confidential basis for inclusion in the statistics reported in this document.
