The Student Judicial Board (SJB) resolves cases of alleged infractions of the Honor and Student Conduct Codes, as assigned by the Office of the Dean of Students. SJB members are selected through application and interview processes. For each Student Judicial Board hearing, five SJB members, including a chairperson, serve on the hearing panel. Other members may participate in the hearing as hearing advisors.
Two Student Judicial Board chairpersons provide leadership to SJB and facilitate hearings. During the fall and spring semesters, SJB chairpersons also resolve student appeal requests related to traffic and parking violations. At his/her discretion, a chairperson may arrange for a judicial board advisor to attend, observe, and assist SJB during a hearing, including during private deliberations.
