How are the consequences established?

Participant 1: I wanted to ask a question about the outcomes or the punishments for respondents. We have a couple of items here, like, you could have to go through education and training, no-contact order, relocation, restrictions of privilege, suspension or expulsion. So, I'm just wondering how would these be determined? Like what kind of action would constitute expulsion versus relocation? It would be case-by-case, but I'm wondering how would that be established? Is rape expulsion and inappropriate touching education?
Participant 2: To add to that- would the survivor have any input on what type of punishment is applied?
