Although the Honor Code provides the guiding principles of the Bryn Mawr community, the College also has in place a set of administrative policies to deal with circumstances that are inappropriate for the Honor Board to address.
A Dean's Panel is conducted in the spirit of the values affirmed in the Bryn Mawr Honor Code: a belief in the integrity of each individual, a concern for others, and a commitment to dialogue. A Dean's Panel may be convened to investigate and resolve certain concerns about a student's behavior raised by students, faculty or professional staff. All members of the community should realize that being called before a Dean's Panel in no way implies a presumption of guilt.
In general, a Dean’s Panel will be convened to deal with (a) disciplinary issues inappropriate to the Honor Board; (b) circumstances in which the well-being or safety of undergraduate students may be in jeopardy; (c) circumstances in which College resources, policies or property have been abused. In determining whether or not a Dean’s Panel is appropriate, the Dean (or her designee) will consult with the head of the Honor Board and such members of the professional staff of the College as circumstances indicate.
