The Role of the College Disciplinary Review Board
The College Disciplinary Review Board’s function is to investigate the issues raised in the disciplinary hearing and determine whether the student charged is responsible for the conduct alleged. Board members play an active role in listening to all testimony and evidence presented, and they have an opportunity to question all witnesses to gain a better understanding of the issues related to the allegations. If members of the College Disciplinary Review Board decide, through deliberation, that the student(s) is responsible for the allegation(s), they then determine an appropriate sanction.
Board Selection for Hearings
Hearings usually last from one to two hours. Five persons (three faculty/professional staff, two students) serve on each Board. You may be asked to be a member of a Board several times per semester, but you can serve when it is convenient for you. You will be notified by email about the convening of a Board several days before the hearing. Hearings are scheduled at various times, during business hours and on different days of the week depending on the class schedules of the student(s) charged and of the witness(es). A confirmation is then sent back to you if you have been selected to serve on the Board.
Students who serve on College Disciplinary Review Boards must maintain a 2.5 cumulative G.P.A. and be in good social standing with the College as determined by the Office of Student Conduct.
All members of the Board must agree to keep all case information in strict confidence.
Please contact Kathleen Hallissey or Anne Eke in the Office of Student Conduct if you have an interest in becoming a member or have any questions.
