What do Administrative Hearing Board Members do?
Conduct board members hear a variety of cases. Boards convene to hear referrals of alleged behavioral (non-academic) student misconduct in possible violation of the University Student Conduct Code. The role of the conduct board member is to listen to all facts in a judicial case and then determine if the parties involved are responsible or not responsible for the alleged violations. Board members will receive initial and periodic in-service training.
What is the Conduct Code?
The University Student Conduct Code contains the campus rules/regulations that are the Community Standards governing student conduct and civility on the campus. The code also outlines the process whereby students can file complaint when their rights as members of the University community have been violated by other students.
What are the requirements to be a board member?
Board members must be currently registered and have a clean judicial record, with a minimum GPA of 2.25.
How long will hearings last?
Typically hearings last anywhere from 1-2 hours. On occasion they will be longer or shorter than this.
How many people serve on the board in a hearing?
Depending upon the level of the alleged violation, each Hearing Board will have a total of three to five people (students, professional staff, and faculty).
What happens if I know the parties involved?
If you find that you know any of the parties involved in the hearing you must excuse your self from the hearing.
