Villanova Disciplinary Hearings
Like most colleges, Villanova University has a specific protocol in place to address students who break the rules or commit crimes on campus. Any type of misconduct could result in a mandatory Villanova disciplinary hearing before faculty members.
First, you will have the opportunity to respond to the charges from the college against you. If you respond as guilty or ignore the charges, the college will proceed to issue a sentence. You will send the Dean a letter with your explanation of why the crime occurred. If you deny the crime, your case will go before the Chair of the Board of Academic Integrity. A disciplinary hearing at Villanova University is similar to a criminal hearing, except the goal is to determine your future at the school rather than impose a criminal sentence.
You or your lawyer will issue a statement and defend your side of the case at the disciplinary hearing, striving for a not-guilty verdict, charge dismissal or another favorable outcome. A panel of faculty members and students will listen and determine the final verdict. You could face expulsion from Villanova, school suspension or academic probation.
