The Office of the Dean of Students (DOS) offers a spectrum of services that may be tailored to meet individual circumstances involving conflict or address harm between parties.
Adaptable Resolution for Title IX/Sexual Misconduct
ADR for Title IX/Sexual Misconduct occurs when a student is alleged to have violated the Interim Sexual Misconduct Protocol for Students. This pathway offers the Respondent the opportunity to acknowledge harm and seek to repair the harm (to the extent possible) experienced by the Complainant and/or the University Community. ADR does not include an investigation, hearing, or result in a finding of ‘responsible’ for a policy violation against a Respondent.
The Assistant Dean of Students is the administrator responsible for oversight of the ADR process. The ADR process will only be initiated at the complainant’s request after the submission of a formal complaint. The request is subject to the approval of the Title IX Coordinator or designee and requires agreement to participate from both the complainant and respondent.
The Office of the Dean of Students offers a variety of services to the Miami community to assist in preventing and resolving conflicts between university members.
