Community Rights and Responsibilities

Community Rights and Responsibilities Mission Statement

California Institute of the Arts (hereinafter "CalArts" or the “Institute") provides its Students with an academic environment conducive to the pursuit of knowledge. This academic environment is based upon accountability, integrity, respect and trust among all members of the CalArts Community.

Operating within the context of the Institute’s mission, The Office of Community Rights and Responsibilities (OCRR) seeks to maintain the Institute’s academic environment by educating and upholding community standards. The OCRR supports the educational mission of the CalArts by administering the CalArts Student Code of Conduct (Code of Conduct) in a manner that educates Students, holds them accountable for Code of Conduct violations and helps them grow into more responsible and community-minded persons.

Philosophy of the Office of Community Rights and Responsibility

All members of the CalArts community are expected to observe commonly accepted standards of conduct. Violations of these standards can result in the imposition of student conduct action. Generally, student conduct action will be imposed only when alleged misconduct occurs on CalArts premises or at CalArts functions. However, a student whose misconduct has a direct and/or distinct adverse impact on the CalArts community, its members, and/or its educational objectives, will be subject to student conduct action regardless of where or when the conduct occurred.

The Code of Conduct program at CalArts is meant to be educational and corrective, not disciplinary and punitive. The Code of Conduct program strives to resolve allegations of misconduct in a fair, timely, and socially-just manner that balances the needs of the individual student and the CalArts community at large. Any CalArts community member (e.g., student, faculty and staff) may file a complaint against a student whom they believe is not upholding commonly accepted standards of conduct.

General Guidelines

The Code of Conduct clarifies the standards of behavior essential to the Institute’s educational mission and its community life. The Code of Conduct is applicable to all CalArts students - undergraduate, graduate and continuing education/Extension. Students are also responsible, and will be held accountable, for the conduct of their guests.

A. Interpretations of the Code of Conduct

The Code of Conduct regulations are set forth in writing in order to give students general notice of prohibited conduct. The Code of Conduct and its regulations are intended to be read broadly and are not designed to define misconduct in exhaustive terms. Attempts to commit acts prohibited by the Code of Conduct shall be handled and remedied in the same manner and to the same extent as completed violations.

Back to top

B. Jurisdiction of the Institute

The Institute shall have jurisdiction over student behavior that occurs on CalArts premises, at Institute-sponsored events, or other off-campus locations if it interferes with educational programs or activities or adversely affects the Institute community and/or the pursuit of its objectives as determined by CalArts officials. If an incident that occurs off campus is determined to fall under the jurisdiction of the Institute, it will be handled according to the policies and procedures of the Code of Conduct.

Students are responsible for their own conduct from the time of application for admission through the actual awarding of the degree, even though conduct may occur on or off-campus, before classes begin or after classes end, as well as during the academic year and during breaks between terms of actual enrollment (even if the conduct is not discovered until after a degree is awarded). The Institute has continuing jurisdiction over students charged with violating the Code of Conduct who withdraw from the Institute while conduct proceedings are still active or pending with regard to that student.

Back to top

C. Inherent Authority

The Institute reserves the right to take necessary and appropriate action to protect the safety and well-being of the Institute, including its reputation and good will, and the Institute Community. The Institute reserves the right to take necessary and appropriate action as a result of student incidents off campus that may adversely affect the well -being, reputation or goodwill of the Institute, Institute Community, Institute Community Members and/or the pursuit of the Institute's mission, goals or objectives.

Back to top

D. Student Participation

Students are asked to assume positions of responsibility in connection with the enforcement of the Code of Conduct so that they might contribute their skills and insights toward the resolution of Code of Conduct matters. However, final authority in Code of Conduct matters is vested in CalArts administration and primarily with the head of Student Experience.

Back to top

E. Focus of the Proceedings

The primary focus of the inquiry in Code of Conduct proceedings shall be to determine if the subject student is responsible for the alleged violation of the Code of Conduct and, if the student is found to be responsible for a violation, to provide the appropriate remedy. Proceedings shall be prompt, fair and impartial.

In keeping with the mission of the OCRR and purpose of the Code of Conduct, student conduct proceedings do not, and are not intended to, emulate the criminal justice system, its processes and/or procedures. Code of Conduct proceedings are intended to be educational and less formal, less adversarial and less complex than criminal justice processes and procedures. Formal rules of evidence shall not be applicable nor shall deviations from prescribed procedures necessarily invalidate a Code of Conduct decision or proceeding.

Back to top

F. Violations of Law and the Student Community Standards

It is the student’s right to report an incident to appropriate law enforcement agencies and/or the Institute . The Institute reserves the right to contact law enforcement agencies for any violation(s) of local, state, or federal law(s). Specific violations of the law in which local authorities may be involved include, but are not limited to, those that are related to drugs, alcohol, assault and battery, sexual assault, trespassing, weapons/explosives and hazardous materials. Except for mandatory reporting required by law, no identifying information will be provided to law enforcement if the victim wishes to remain anonymous.

If a student is charged with an off-campus violation of federal, state or local laws, conduct charges and proceedings may still be instituted and sanctions imposed for misconduct that involves members of the Institute community or demonstrates flagrant disregard for the safety of the CalArts community. Code of Conduct proceedings may be instituted against a student charged with violation of a law in connection with conduct that is also a violation of the Code of Conduct, such as when both violations may result from the same factual situation, without regard to the pending status of civil litigation in court or criminal arrest and prosecution.

Proceedings under the Code of Conduct may be carried out prior to, simultaneously with, or following civil or criminal proceedings off campus. Students subject to potential or actual criminal charges relating to conduct alleged in pending Code of Conduct proceedings may assert their Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination during Code of Conduct proceedings. While no inference of responsibility for Code of Conduct violations will be drawn because of the assertion of the Fifth Amendment privilege, the Conduct Officer(s) will nonetheless evaluate all the other information and evidence in making their determination.

Determinations under the Code of Conduct shall not be subject to change because criminal or civil charges arising out of the same facts were dismissed, reduced, or resolved in favor or against the Respondent.

Back to top

G. Standard of Proof

The standard of proof to find a violation of Institute policy is a preponderance of the evidence standard .Preponderance of the evidence means that a decision of responsibility for a policy violation will be made on whether it is more likely than not that the respondent violated the policy based on the totality of information gathered during the investigation.

Back to top

H. Statute of Limitations

Unless the law requires a longer period of limitation, as with incidents violating the CalArts CalArts Title IX Policy or CalArts Sexual Misconduct Policy, a Code complaint against the Respondent must be filed within one calendar year of the conduct alleged to be a violation.

Back to top

I. Communication

The OCRR will, at its discretion, communicate to all Students via any one or more of the following methods: official CalArts email account, U.S. Mail, parcel delivery (e.g. UPS, FedEx), and/or personal hand delivery. Students should normally expect the OCRR's primary medium of communication will be through their official CalArts e-mail account. Students are held responsible and accountable for retrieving communications from their official CalArts e-mail account on a daily basis. Failure to do so is not an acceptable excuse for delaying the conduct process.

Back to top

J. Registered Student Clubs

Registered Student Clubs may be charged with the violation of any section of the Code of Conduct or violation of any published Institute policies and procedures. A Registered Student Club and its officers may be held collectively and/or individually responsible when those associated with the Registered Student Clubs violate the Code of Conduct, particularly when those involved have received the tacit or overt consent or encouragement of the clubs, its leaders, officers. The officer(s), leader(s) for a Registered Student Clubs may be directed by the Head of Student Experience, or a designee, to take appropriate action designed to prevent or end violations of the Code of Conduct by the Registered Student Clubs. Sanctions for organizational misconduct may include revocation or denial of registration as well as other appropriate sanctions.

Back to top

K. Reservation of Rights

The Institute expressly reserves the right to revise, supplement or withdraw any Code of Conduct section, Institute policy or portion of a policy periodically as it deems necessary.

Upon the declaration of a campus emergency, all student policies and procedures remain in effect. However, the Head of Student Experience, or a designee, may temporarily suspend and/or revise existing policies, procedures or processes for the health and safety of the campus community and to assist and support the Institute’s efforts during the emergency and subsequent recovery.

Back to top

L. Knowledge and Awareness of Policies and Code

Students are expected to know and understand Institute policies. Lack of knowledge is not an acceptable justification or defense for committing violations of Institute policies or the Code of Conduct. Lack of intent or awareness of such policies or the Code of Conduct will not be accepted as an excuse or defense for violations, and will generally subject the Respondent to the same consequences as deliberate violations.

Sanctions and Educational Outcomes of Violating CalArts Student Code of Conduct

When a student is found responsible to have departed from commonly accepted standards of conduct, the following educational outcomes (sanctions) may be imposed: restitution fines, deferred finding of responsibility, conduct warning, conduct probation, behavioral expectations (including a campus no-contact order), parental and guardian notification, loss of privileges and exclusion from activities, residence hall suspension, residence hall dismissal, suspension, or dismissal from the Institute, withholding of registration or degree, or other rehabilitative measures. Any educational outcome (sanction) that is imposed should be appropriate to the violation, taking into consideration the context and seriousness of the violation and the past conduct record of the student. Sanctions may include:

Academic Dismissal: Termination of student status for an indefinite period. Readmission to CalArts shall require the specific approval of the student’s School Dean and the Provost. Readmission after dismissal may be granted only under exceptional circumstances

Behavioral Expectations Letter: In instances of repeated or serious offenses, behavioral expectations may be clearly identified and provided in writing to responsible students. Future codes of conduct and/or Institute policy violations may result in separation from the CalArts.

Conduct Suspension: Conduct suspension is a recognition of the temporary termination of the person’s status as a student. He/She/Ze loses all privileges of a regularly-enrolled student and is required to leave the campus. No refunds apply in such cases. Conduct files are maintained permanently in the Office of CRR. Any suspended student who returns to the campus during the suspension period is subject to dismissal unless she/he/ze has made prior arrangements with the Director of (OCRR), or designee. Violation of the conditions of conduct suspension, or of CalArts policies during the period of suspension, may be cause for further student conduct action, typically in the form of conduct dismissal.

Conduct Probation: Conduct probation is a recognition of a very serious lack of good campus citizenship and conduct or a serious or repeated violation of an Institute regulation. This probationary status is imposed for a specific period of time in which a student must demonstrate conduct that conforms to CalArts standards of conduct. Conditions restricting the student’s privileges or eligibility for activities may be imposed. Conduct probation is a warning that a person’s status as a student at CalArts is in jeopardy and that any further violation may result in suspension or dismissal from the Institute.

Conduct Dismissal: Conduct dismissal is the termination of a student’s status at the Institute and is reserved for the most egregious acts of student misconduct. He/She/Ze loses all privileges of a regularly-enrolled student and is required to leave the campus. No refunds apply in such cases. Conduct files are maintained permanently in the OCRR office. Any dismissed student who returns to the campus without prior approval from the Director of OCRR (or designee) may face further action, including a no trespass order.

Conduct Warning: Written notice to the student that a violation of a CalArts standard of conduct has occurred and that continued or repeated violations of CalArts standards of conduct may be cause for further sanctions or disciplinary actions normally in the form of disciplinary probation, loss of privileges and exclusion from activities, suspension, or dismissal.

Deferred Finding of Responsibility: A deferred finding of responsibility allows for the dismissal of specific policy violation charges, pending good conduct during a specified period of time. This rarely used educational outcome may be recommended by the adjudicating body and is assigned at the discretion of the Director of OCRR (or designee). A deferred finding allows for the withdrawal of formal charges for good cause after a specified period of time (to last no longer than the student’s graduation date from the Institute).

Factors to be considered in providing a deferred finding of responsibility include:

  1. the present demeanor of the student;
  2. the conduct of the student subsequent to the violation;
  3. the nature of the violation and severity of any damage, injury, or harm resulting from it; and/or
  4. the student has not received any other deferred finding of responsibility as an outcome from a previous student conduct matter while enrolled at CalArts.

If a student complies with the conditions and requirements attributed to a deferred finding, the conduct charges will be dismissed at the end of the deferral period and there will be no conduct record of this case. Failure to comply with the conditions and requirements of the deferred finding may result in a finding of responsibility and, as a result, become part of the student’s conduct record. In this instance, additional educational outcomes may apply

Interim Suspension Pending Further Action: At times, a student may endanger other members of the community, or community property, Institute programs, or him/her/zirself. Certain Conduct Officers (i.e., President, Provost, Vice President/Chief Operating Officer, Director of OCRR and Head of Student Experience), or those acting on their behalf, have the right to immediately place a student on an interim suspension pending student conduct action (including appeal of findings and outcomes), criminal proceedings, or medical evaluation relevant to such proceedings.

An interim suspension is imposed for one of the following suctions:

  1. to ensure the safety and well-being of members of the CalArts community or preservation of Institute property;
  2. to ensure the student’s own physical or emotional safety and well-being; and/or
  3. If the student poses a substantial and/or immediate threat to others or to the stability and continuance of normal functions and operations of the Institute.

If, in the judgment of any of these Institute officials, interim suspension is necessary, the Vice President/Chief Operating Officer, Director of OCRR, Head of Student Experience (or designee) will inform the student in writing according to the CalArts student conduct procedures. The interim suspension will be effective immediately without prior notice.

The Head of Student Experience (or designee) will then schedule a conduct hearing within a reasonable period of time after the interim suspension is imposed to determine whether the Interim suspension will remain in effect through the conduct process. If the Head of Student Experience made the determination to impose the interim suspension, the Vice President/Chief Operating Officer, Director of OCRR will hear the interim suspension hearing.

A student who is suspended on an interim basis will be given a prompt opportunity to meet with (telephonically, video conferencing, or in person) the Conduct Officer (or designee) who imposed the interim suspension in order to discuss only the following issue:

  1. the reliability of the information concerning the student’s conduct;
  2. whether the conduct and surrounding circumstances reasonably indicate that the continued presence of the student on CalArts premises poses a substantial and/or immediate threat to others (including physical or emotional safety and well-being of community members, including the respondent), or to the stability and continuance of normal CalArts functions and operations.

During the interim suspension period, the student may be denied access to the campus (including classes and/or residence halls) and all other Institute premises, activities, or privileges for which the student might otherwise be eligible, as deemed appropriate by the Vice President/Chief Operating Officer, Director of OCRR or Head of Student Experience (or designee).

Loss of Privileges and Exclusion from Activities: Exclusion from participation in designated privileges and/or activities for a specified period of time. Failure to adhere to the limitations imposed on privileges in activities or violation of CalArts policies during the period of the sanction may be cause for further disciplinary action, normally in the form of suspension or dismissal.

Parental and Guardian Notification: A fundamental goal of CalArts is to support students’ independence and maturity, in part by expecting them to assume responsibility for their own educational, artistic, and personal matters. However, under laws and policies that govern the privacy rights of students, CalArts has the authority and reserves the right to contact parents or guardians of dependent students about a variety of serious matters and the parents or guardians of all students in emergencies regarding serious injury or life or death situations.

The cases in which CalArts would, in extraordinary circumstances, notify parents or guardians cannot in the nature of things be completely enumerated or described, but it is, for example, the belief of CalArts that a serious injury to a student, or a violent crime committed upon a student, is a sufficiently grave occurrence as to constitute an extraordinary circumstance. Parental or guardian notification may also occur under the following circumstances: hospitalization; hospital visits for alcohol poisoning or drug overdose; behavior that will likely result in residence hall suspension or dismissal; conduct suspension or dismissal; acts of violence or significant abuse toward others or a student’s own self; arrest; drug or alcohol use that results in police action; or serious mental health concerns.

Residence Hall Dismissal: Permanent separation of the student from the residence halls or Institute-subsidized apartments. Students who are dismissed from residence halls or apartments will not receive any refund for their room or board payments.

Residence Hall Suspension: Separation of the student from the residence halls or Institute-subsidized apartments for a stated period of time, after which the student is eligible to return. Students who are placed on residence hall suspension will not receive any refund for their room or board payments.

Restitution: Reimbursement for damage to or misappropriation of CalArts property or the property of others may be imposed either exclusively or in combination with other disciplinary action. Such reimbursement may take the form of monetary payment or appropriate service to repair or otherwise compensate for damages.

Appeals Process

A Conduct decision may be appealed by the Respondent to the Head of Student Experience. The student must submit, in writing or via email, a notice of appeal. The notice of appeal should provide a brief statement of the basis for the appeal and must be submitted within five (5) calendar days of the date on which the disciplinary sanction is imposed. Students can appeal a conduct decision on the following grounds:

  • The sanction is substantially disproportionate to the offense;
  • The procedures provided for in the Code of Conduct were not materially followed resulting in significant prejudice to the Appellant;
  • New relevant evidence is available, which in the exercise of reasonable diligence could not have been produced at the time of the hearing;
  • The decision is not supported by substantial evidence

Upon receipt of a notice of appeal, the Head of Student Experience, or designee, will convene the Appeals Committee, as soon as is practical. Persons eligible to serve on the Appeals Committee shall be current members of the faculty and staff. No person shall participate as a member of the Appeals Committee who has been involved in the events upon which the disciplinary sanction has been imposed or who is biased. The members of the Appeals Committee shall respect the confidentiality of the proceedings.

Within five (5) calendar days of the date from which the Appeals Committee convenes, or as soon thereafter as practical, the Appeals Committee shall meet to determine if the request for appeal meets the grounds outlined for an appeal.

If the Appeals Committee makes the decision to hear the appeal, they will meet to consider the merits of the appeal. At their discretion, the Appeals Committee shall review, and interview other persons and shall consider additional written materials and other items pertinent to the appeal.

At the completion of its review, the Appeals Committee shall prepare a written advisory report outlining the appeals decision and rationale. A determination by the Appeals Committee is based on the Preponderance of Evidence standard. The Appeals Committee outcome can yield the following:

  • Reduced sanctions based on review of evidence
  • Uphold sanctions based on review of evidence
  • Increase sanctions based on review of evidence
  • The conduct decision can be reversed if the Appeals Committee determines the evidence does not support the outcome.

The Appeals Committee, shall transmit their decision in writing to the Head of Student Experience and the Director of OCRR.

The Head of Student Experience shall send the student the Notice of Appeal Outcome in writing or via the student’s official CalArts email account.

The decision of the Appeals Committee shall be final and no additional appeals will be considered.

Record Keeping

For compliance with Clery Act record retention requirements, all official conduct-related correspondence will be retained for a minimum of seven years;

A Student’s conduct history and record are cumulative; therefore increased sanctions may be imposed to take into consideration the Student’s overall record of violations of all types, not just those of a similar type.

Review and Revision

Under the direction of the Office of Community Rights and Responsibilities, this Student Code of Conduct and related procedures shall be reviewed and updated to comply with current county, state and federal guidelines.
