The Role of the Student Conduct Board
The Student Conduct Board’s function is to investigate the alleged violations against the Code of Conduct within the disciplinary hearing and determine whether the student charged is responsible or not responsible.
Board members play an active role in listening to all testimony and information presented, and they have an opportunity to question all witnesses to gain a better understanding of the issues related to the allegations.
If members of the Board determine, through deliberation, that the student(s) is(are) responsible for the allegation(s), they then recommend an appropriate sanction.
Board Selection for Hearings
Hearings usually last between one to two hours.
The Student Conduct Board is comprised of three (3) persons (two students, one faculty/staff member).
You may be asked to be a member of multiple conduct board hearings several times per semester, but you can serve when it is convenient for you.
You will be notified by email about the convening of a hearing at least three (3) business days in advance to confirm your availability. If you indicate you are available, you will receive confirmation from the Office of Student Conduct & Compliance with all pertinent details/logistics. If you are selected as an alternate, please keep that time free on your calendar.
Hearings are scheduled at various times, from 9 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. and on different days of the week depending on the class schedules of the student(s) charged and of the witness(s).
Students who serve on the Student Conduct Board must:
- Maintain a 2.0 cumulative G.P.A.,
- Be in good social standing with the College as determined by the Office of Student Conduct & Compliance, and
- Agree to keep all case information in strict confidence by signing a confidentiality waiver.
