person will be notified if an appeal has been filed. The Title IX Coordinator will
assign members to the appellate panel.
The original decision may be appealed only due to:
1. Procedural Errors: The appellant alleges that there was a deviation or
change from the procedures outlined in the adjudication process which
adversely impacted the outcome of the complaint. If the appellate panel
determines that there was a procedural error which may have altered the
outcome of the case, the appeal will be investigated.
2. New Evidence: The appellant alleges that new evidence became available
which would have impacted the outcome of the complaint. The appellant
must (i) present the new evidence, (ii) explain why it was unavailable
prior to the original decision and (iii) prove that the new evidence may
have altered the outcome. The other person will be given an opportunity
to address the new evidence.
