If charges are brought, it is common for a Panel to be used. A Panel should be well educated about the school’s Title IX policy and it may consist of professors, supervisory athletic instructors, other employees, and even students. A Panel serves like a “judge and jury”. Their job is to oversee the allegations against you, to make findings of fact, and to suggest punishment in the event you are found to have violated the Title IX policy. Who may serve on the panel will defined in your school’s student handbook or Title IX policy.
