Student Conduct Board

The Student Conduct Board has the authority to hear cases involving alleged violations of the Code of Community Standards. The Student Conduct Board is composed of students who are selected through an annual application and interview process. All Student Conduct Board members receive training from the Office of Community Standards.

Student Conduct Board members, officers and representatives are responsible for providing a fair and unbiased process to address issues of student conduct. These students work with faculty, the Student Government Association and other members of the university community to improve awareness of values-based behaviors and increase student learning.

During hearings, the Student Conduct Board will follow all operational guidelines and seek support and guidance from the Student Conduct Board Advisor when appropriate. Hearings are formal and confidential. The board will decide, in closed session, if the accused student should be found responsible based on the information presented via a majority vote. Sanctions imposed by the Student Conduct Board will also be decided by majority vote.

If you are interested in applying, please email Michelle Quinones, at mquinone@stetson.edu.
