Impact of Outside Proceedings
Judicial Panels are responsible for upholding Stanford University’s policies, rules and regulations related to student conduct in determining whether a student has violated a policy, rule or regulation. Panels may not factor into their decision-making whether the same alleged misconduct has been, is being, or will be addressed by another entity—such as federal, state or local government, Residential Education, Housing Assignment Services, academic departments, professional organizations, the Athletic Department, or future schools or employers. Proceedings involving the same incident/conduct heard in different forums, addressing different interests, do not constitute "double jeopardy."
This responsibility does not preclude Judicial Panels from factoring into their sanction decisions the consequences of penalties imposed in outside proceedings, although there is no obligation to consider them and no obligation to deviate from issuing standard sanctions regardless of outside penalties.
