The alleged violator will be given an opportunity to give statements regarding any incident. Based on all statements and reports related to an alleged violation, UAA will determine if a violation has occurred. UAA reserves the right to take any and all appropriate actions to protect the safety and well-being of event participants.
Consequences of Violating the Code of Conduct
The Urban Affairs Association reserves the right to request that individuals who violate principles of the code of conduct leave the event. The Association also reserves the right to ban violators from future Association activities. At the discretion of the Association’s Executive Director in consultation with the Governing Board Chair, violations may be reported to local authorities or to the violator’s home institution.

Should you witness or experience behavior which runs counter to the principles in this code of conduct, please alert an Association staff member as soon as possible. In addition to contacting staff directly, an anonymous web form is available for reporting any issues of concern. Any information submitted via that form is only accessible by the Association’s Executive staff and Governing Board officers. If you observe any individual experiencing an immediate threat or assault, please contact the authorities directly, alert event security or staff, and alert Association staff.
