Multiple provisions of the Student Code of Conduct may be applicable to Title IX-related concerns, including the following:

5-308(F)(2) Endangering, threatening, or causing physical harm to any member of the university community or to oneself, causing reasonable apprehension of such harm or engaging in conduct or communications that a reasonable person would interpret as a serious expression of intent to harm.

5-308(F)(20) Stalking or engaging in repeated or significant behavior toward another individual, whether in person, in writing, or through electronic means, after having been asked to stop, or doing so to such a degree that a reasonable person, subject to such contact, would regard the contact as unwanted.

5-308(F)(21) Engaging in discriminatory activities, including harassment and retaliation, as prohibited by applicable law or university policy.

5-308(F)(23) Sexual misconduct.

Defined under 5-308(E)(17) to mean one or more of the following:

a. Sexual violence and other non-consensual sexual contact – actual or attempted physical sexual acts perpetrated against a person by force or without consent; or

b. Sexual harassment – unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that is sufficiently severe or pervasive as to create an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment; or

c. Other unwanted or non-consensual sexual conduct including but not limited to indecent exposure, sexual exploitation or voyeurism, or non-consensual photographing or audio-recording or video-recording or another in a state of full or partial undress or while engaged in sexual activity, or publishing or disseminating such materials.

Disciplinary Procedures

The Arizona Board of Regents' disciplinary procedures used by the University of Arizona use a preponderance of the evidence (more likely than not) standard of proof.
