The Student Judicial Board (SJB) resolves charges of alleged violations 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. Two Student Judicial Board members serve as chairpersons, providing leadership to SJB and facilitating hearings. For each Student Judicial Board hearing, five SJB members, including a chairperson, serve on the hearing panel. At the chairperson’s discretion, a judicial board advisor may attend, observe, and assist SJB during a hearing, including during private deliberations. During fall and spring semesters, SJB chairpersons also resolve student appeal requests related to traffic and parking violations.
