University Hearing Board

When a student at the University is charged with a serious violation of the Standards of Student Conduct, including but not limited to a violation of the University’s Sexual Misconduct Policy or conduct that might lead to a felony charge if prosecuted criminally, a University Hearing Board is charged with conducting a fair and impartial hearing, making a determination whether the student is responsible for alleged violations of University policy, and if the student is found responsible, determining appropriate sanctions.

University Hearing Boards include three administrators who are selected from a pool of trained members charged with determining if a student is responsible of a violation of University policy and if so assign appropriate sanctions. The dean of the student’s college serves as the non-voting chair of the board. Members are appointed for one-year terms annualy by the Vice President for Student Development. They are also trained annually on Title IX changes, the conduct process,and prohibited policies by the University.
