If you're a student at the College of Staten Island, CUNY and you're accused of misconduct, you should not speak to the school or others without taking the necessary precautions. Too much is at stake. At the College of Staten Island, the school has specific policies as to how your case will be addressed and adjudicated. Understanding or successfully navigating these policies is in part key to success. As to which policy would apply it will be dependent in part upon the specific offense alleged. Is it a Title IX sexual misconduct case? Does the case involve academic integrity or an academic misconduct charge, or is it a general disciplinary issue? You should also understand that at the college of Staten Island, as with all schools, the school can be in a rush to judgment and does not have an accused student's rights and interests in mind. That's why an experienced attorney-adviser can help navigate the process, can protect a student's rights and interests, and it can potentially help allow for a more favorable outcome.
