Will the college ensure a fair process if I am a student who was accused of sexually assaulting another student in a sexual misconduct case?

No, you cannot depend on the college to ensure a fair process. The college is not looking out for you, the college is looking out for its own interest and liabilities. So much is at stake in a college sexual misconduct case. There are multiple parties involved, considerations involved, dynamics involved that you cannot depend on the college to be mindful of your rights or interests in any capacity. I've been through so many of these cases, too many to count over the years, literally hundreds upon hundreds upon hundreds across the United States, and I'm doing everything within my power to try to ensure a fair process.

It would unfortunately make your head spin at times when I could step in and I have to take a look back and say that the school shouldn't have done that or should have did this. You don't want that to be the case. You want to make sure that you have somebody in your corner from the start of the process to make sure that your interests and rights are protected throughout. You need to have an experienced attorney advisor in your corner from day one.
