Students may select an attorney for assistance during the sexual assault adjudication proceedings, but at their own expense. The investigation timeline is not specified. The University of Alaska Anchorage provides disciplinary sanction guidelines for sexual misconduct, with sanctions ranging from a warning to expulsion. The university does not publicize the number of cases and sanctions, does not specify whether investigators are trauma-informed, and does not state whether mediation is used in cases of sexual assault. If the decision is appealed, it goes to the senior student services professional or designee. The university does not specify whether sanctions go into effect immediately or hold until the end of appeals.
Survivors are guaranteed accommodations outside of the adjudication process. The University of Alaska Anchorage provides mental health counseling services but does not mention sexual assault specific counseling.
