Judicial

Student Judicial Boards are composed of a cross-section of students who provide educational and developmental peer accountability. Members are selected each academic year through an application process conducted by Student Life with assistance from the Student Government Association Judiciary, and must be in good academic, labor and social standing.

Student Judicial Boards have been empowered by the Student Government Association, Vice President of Labor and Student Life, and Residential Life Collegium to hear charges of residential and campus violations referred to them by Student Life. They have the authority to make decisions of “Responsible” or “Not Responsible,” and sanction students accordingly.

Administrative Hearing Officers are appointed by the Vice President of Labor & Student Life to hear charges of violations for which the maximum penalty is typically less than suspension. Should the Hearing Officer determine during the course of the hearing that a suspension sanction is possible, the case will be referred to the Campus Conduct Hearing Board.

Appeals of Administrative Hearing Officers’ decisions will be referred to the Campus Conduct Hearing Board.

Administrative Hearing Officers are appointed by the Vice President of Student Life to hear charges of violations for which the maximum penalty is typically less than suspension.

The Campus Conduct Hearing Board (CCHB) has original jurisdiction for all suspendable nonacademic cases of student misconduct.

The Campus Conduct Hearing Board consists of five elected faculty members, five elected staff members, a representative from the Student Life Council (appointed annually), and four students appointed annually by the Student Government Association in accordance with the standards outlined in “Procedures for Campus Conduct Hearing Board Panels”.

The Student Life Council (SLC) has original jurisdiction in cases involving weapons, and in cases deemed by the President or his designee as being of an emergency nature. In the absence of an actual case, SLC will not issue interpretations of the Student Conduct Regulations.

The Student Life Council consists of seven members, including four elected members of the General Faculty Assembly (two of whom also are members of the College Faculty), two student members (one of whom is the Student Government Association President or other elected officer designated by the SGA President), and the Vice President for Labor and Student Life (who will not be eligible to serve as a hearing panel member).
