Student Conduct Committee
The Student Conduct Committee is the body authorized to conduct formal hearings and impose sanctions for alleged violations of the Student Code of Conduct. The committee also serves as an appellate authority for informal hearings for alleged violations of the Student Code of Conduct.
The committee shall be composed of one (1) faculty/staff member, one (1) student and one (1) faculty/staff chair.
For any hearing, the Chair selects the faculty/staff member and the student member from their respective pools. A charged student is notified of the members of the hearing board in the official notification of hearing and has one business day to challenge a board member's participation based on known facts that would impact impartiality or conflict of interest.
The chair is appointed by the Vice President for University Affairs (VPUA) and serves on a permanent basis. The pool of committee members shall consist of at least five (5) faculty/staff members appointed by the VPUA and at least five (5) students appointed by the president of the Student Government Association.
The VPUA, or designee, may appoint student or faculty/staff members to the committee pool in situations where committee members are unavailable to serve to preserve the timeliness of the student conduct process.
Faculty and Staff members by the Vice President for University Affairs
