What do you mean by "complainant?"

A complainant is the person who brings a case against a student in a college judicial system. This could be another student, a faculty member, an administrator, a student staff member, a member of the campus police force, or, in some cases, anyone from the outside community. Even though school shy away from using terms you'd find in court proceedings, you can think of this person as the plaintif, prosecutor, accusor, blamer, or whatever other term makes sense. We can help people who want to bring a complaint against a student understand the system, choose the right policies, and create the strongest case they can.
