Amnesty

To facilitate reports and thorough investigations of prohibited conduct, individuals who report information about possible prohibited conduct violations to the University, and individuals who participate in an investigation under this policy, will not be disciplined by the University for violations of its drug and alcohol policies that occurred in connection with the reported prohibited conduct and were discovered as a result of a prohibited conduct report or investigation. This amnesty provision applies to complainants, respondents, and other individuals who participate in an investigation under this policy. However, this amnesty provision does not apply to a person who has given another person alcohol or drugs without their knowledge and with the intent of causing them to become incapacitated and therefore vulnerable to experiencing prohibited conduct.

Moreover, the University may offer leniency with respect to other violations that emerge as a result of a prohibited conduct report or investigation, depending on the circumstances involved.

The information on this page is a subsection of the University of Minnesota's Administrative Policy for Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault, Stalking and Relationship Violence.  It has been selected for this webpage based on it's relevance to students in the student conduct process.  To view this policy in its entirety, please visit the policy library.
