Faculty Handbook:

7.5.20 University Conduct Board


The University Conduct Board is made up of faculty, staff, and students that determine if an accused student is responsible for violating the Code of Student Conduct. A student may elect to have their case heard by a Conduct Board. The Director of Student Conduct determines if it is a University Conduct Board or a Student Conduct Board. The Director of Student Conduct may also refer a case to a board rather than giving a student the choice of an administrative resolution with a Conduct Review Officer.
