Office of Student Conduct

Formal Hearing

In cases of accusation of violations of the Student Code of Conduct that could result in suspension from the University or removal from the residence halls, the Director of Student Conduct or their designee may refer the student conduct case to the University Student Conduct Board (USCB) at their discretion.  Each USCB is made up of at least three students, one faculty member, and one staff member, with the majority of members being students. In cases of alleged academic dishonesty, additional faculty members may serve, with the Board majority still being students. All Board members receive training on an annual basis; specialized training related to sexual misconduct is required prior to service on a sexual misconduct case.

If the student fails to appear for the conference or USCB hearing, the meeting may be held without his or her presence or statements.
