A Code Violation Notation shall not include the name of the Student-Respondent and shall not include the name of the person reporting the alleged violation(s) of the Honor Code pursuant to Part IV.A.

If such determination is reached by the Adjudicatory Panel, then the Adjudicatory Panel shall prepare the Code Non-Violation Notation, as set forth in Part V.B.11.b, subject to reversal, alteration or modification by the Appeals Panel.  A “Code Non-Violation Notation” shall not include the names of, nor any identifying information about, the Student-Respondent, any person reporting the alleged violation(s) of the Honor Code pursuant to Part IV.A or any individual involved with the case other than the names of the Investigator(s), the members of the Adjudicatory Panel and/or the members of the Appeals Panel, as applicable.
