At the conclusion of the investigation, the Investigator will prepare the investigative report. The investigative report will summarize the relevant exculpatory and inculpatory evidence. The report may include, but is not limited to, items such as summaries of all interviews conducted, photographs, descriptions of relevant evidence, summaries of relevant electronic records, and a detailed report of the events in question. All University investigators receive training on issues of relevance to create an investigative report that fairly summarizes relevant evidence.
Both Parties are entitled to equal opportunity to inspect and review any evidence obtained as part of the investigation that is directly related to the allegations raised in a formal complaint. This also includes any evidence upon which the University does not intend to rely in reaching a determination regarding responsibility. Prior to completion of the investigative report, the Investigator will send to each Party and the Party’s Advisor, if any, the evidence subject to inspection and review in an electronic format or a hard copy, and the Parties will have at least 10 business days to submit a written response, which the Investigator will consider prior to completion of the investigative report.
After reviewing the written responses, if any, the Investigator will then finalize the Investigation Report and, least 10 business days prior to a hearing or other time of determination regarding responsibility, send to each Party and the Party’s advisor, if any, the final investigative report in an electronic format or a hard copy, for their review and written response.
Parties and Advisors will be subject to a non-disclosure agreement not to disclose any evidence subject to inspection and review prior to accessing materials.
