Becoming a Hearing Board Member

There are three types of hearing boards facilitated by the Office of Student Conduct: Student Conduct Board, Academic Integrity Board and Sexual Assault Board. The Student Conduct Board hears cases where students have been charged with violations of the Student Code of Conduct; the Academic Integrity Board only hears cases of cheating and plagiarism; and the Sexual Assault Board hears cases where students have been charged with sexual assault or sexual violence. A general training is required for both faculty and students who serve on the Student Conduct and Academic Integrity Boards, while additional training is required for those who wish to serve on the Sexual Assault Board.

Undergraduate board members must (1) have completed at least one semester at the University of Nevada, Reno; (2) be currently enrolled in at least six (6) credits; (3) have no student conduct record; and (4) have a minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA.
