Generally, CIA jurisdiction and disciplinary processes apply to student conduct that:

occurs on Institute premises or occurs during the course of off-campus activities related to CIA, or violates federal, state, or local laws on or off the CIA campus, or adversely affects the Institute community, Institute’s reputation and/or the Institute’s pursuit of its educational mission.

Those subject to jurisdiction and discipline under the policy include:

  • all persons taking courses at CIA

  • all those who reside in Institute housing

  • students whose guests violate CIA policy

  • student organizations and their officers

Students who are charged with an off-campus violation of federal, state, or local laws will participate in the Institute’s judicial process and may have sanctions imposed regardless of other legal or civil penalties. In some cases, interim suspensions or restrictions may be imposed even before the student has been found guilty in a court of law. Institute judicial proceedings may be carried out prior to, simultaneously with, or following civil or criminal proceedings off campus.

In all cases, the Institute will cooperate fully with law enforcement and other agencies in the enforcement of criminal law on campus and in the conditions imposed by criminal courts for the rehabilitation of student violators. Individual students, faculty and staff, acting in their personal capacities remain free to interact with governmental representatives as they deem appropriate.
