What evidence can be presented in a university disciplinary hearing?

The types of evidence that can be presented at a university disciplinary hearing can vary. It will depend on the particular school involved and the kind of case that's involved. To give an example, text messages, social media posts, pictures, videos, witness statements, expert reports such as in a Title IX case. Often there's consent, that's an issue. It may involve alcohol and/or drugs. A toxicology report, for example, that analyzes the accused and the accusers level of intoxication, to make an expert report as to whether or not the person say was incapacitated or not. A polygraph examination, a forensic evaluation that would consider the allegations and could make an expert determination whether say the allegations would be consistent with what took place. There's a multitude of evidence that needs to be presented at a university disciplinary hearing inquest. What needs to be done is you need to tip the scales in your favor so that the accusing party does not meet their burden, which is often by a preponderance of the evidence in say Title IX cases or general disciplinary cases.
