Conduct Board



The 2014-2015 application has closed.

Please check back in the spring for information regarding the 2015-2016 application process.


The Conduct Board is responsible for reviewing potential violations of the Code of Student Conduct and educating the University population about the rules, polices, and regulations contained in the Code. Most notably, board members serve as hearing officers for cases that could result in Suspension or Expulsion from the University. 

More than just a resume booster: Service on the Board is a challenging and satisfying way for students to enhance their academic experiences. Board members gain valuable critical thinking, communication, and time management skills that will make them more competitive when applying for a job or graduate school. Board members who have served for more than one year are eligible to seek positions of increased responsibility and leadership.
