Become a hearing board member

There are three types of hearing boards facilitated by the Office of Student Conduct:

  • Student Conduct Board. The Student Conduct Board hears cases where students have been charged with violations of the Student Code of Conduct.
  • Academic Integrity Board. The Academic Integrity Board only hears cases of cheating and plagiarism.
  • Sexual Assault Board. 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.
