Hearing Support Services

The complaining and responding parties have the opportunity to have a support person present at a hearing. A list of faculty/staff support persons who have offered to serve in this role is available from the Office of Student Affairs. A party may also ask another member of the Wentworth faculty, staff, or student to serve as a support person. No faculty or staff is required to accept a request from a party to serve as a support person.  The support person may assist the party before the hearing in preparing a statement, reviewing the process, and seeking answers to any questions that the party may have. Hearing support persons are present for support only and are not permitted to ask or answer questions, present evidence, or make any statements during the hearing.  The Institute does not warrant the competency or ability of any volunteer support person. The Hearing Administrator must be notified in writing two (2) days prior to the hearing date who will be serving as the hearing support person. For cases being heard by the Community Standards Board, the Assistant Dean of Students must be notified in writing two (2) days prior to the hearing date the individual who will be serving as hearing support.
