Hi everyone. I’m not sure if this counts as an IA, but if it does I want to make sure I report it.

Freshman year (in spring 2021) I received an email from the office of residential conduct. Here is the exact wording from the letter:

“You or your organization have been referred to the University for alleged behavior on or around [date] by a member of the community. This behavior includes, but is not limited to: failure to mask, violation of residential visitation guidelines and physical distancing.

We are not investigating the incident at this time, however, we are informing you or your organization that the behavior may not be in compliance with the COVID-19 Community Standards.

Please be aware that compliance with the COVID-19 Community Standards is a condition of continued enrollment and access to campus property. Failure to comply with the guidelines and standards can result in the following administrative actions and sanctions that may be selected alone or in combination upon a determination of a violation of the COVID-19 Community Standards:


• Written warning and notice to maintain a safe and healthy environment by upholding the COVID-19 Community Standards. A written warning shall convey that future non-compliance may result in more serious measures…..”

Plus some other more serious sanctions.

My question is: this behavior was alleged and I never had a hearing or received any further information about this possible violation, so is it something I need to report? I requested a copy of my housing conduct record to see if there is anything on there but have not received it yet.

I also requested my Dean’s Certification which stated that I have no disciplinary record and have remained in good standing.

Am I overreacting or is this alleged behavior (not technically a violation) still something I need to report?

I also never had guests over and always wore a mask, so I’m honestly not sure what the alleged behavior is referring to.

Any advice or thoughts is appreciated!

The school never opened an investigation. Therefore there was no ACTION by the INSTITUTION that would need to be reported by you.

Had there been an investigation, you would have been afforded due process and been permitted to defend yourself against an accusation. The school can't claim it took an action against you if you were not afforded due process.

Go in peace.

This is a "wagging our finger" letter, but as pointed out, they didn't take any action to investigate further, it seems. It's just a warning. It could even be a general notice to all students, for all we know.

This school doesn't want to throw IA's at 20% of the student body (making up this stat) for not masking or bringing in visitors. No one has that much time.
