Student Hearing Board Application

The Student Hearing Board is a panel of student leaders who are responsible for adjudicating conduct hearings for students who have been charged with violations of University policy.  A Student Hearing Board Member participates in all aspects of the conduct hearing process.  This includes listening to testimony, questioning students and witnesses, reviewing facts and deliberating on the case with other board members, and voting to determine responsibility.

A Student Hearing Board Member should be familiar with all University and Residence Life policies as outlined in The Guide to Pride and The Living Factor.  Because the disposition of conduct cases is extremely confidential, Student Hearing Board Members must have the ability to maintain strict confidentiality regarding all conduct matters and must meet all of the other candidate requirements as outlined on the Student Hearing Board application.

Based on the Student Hearing schedule, Student Hearing Board members must be available between the hours of 4-8pm on Mondays or Thursdays throughout the academic year. For more information regarding the Student Hearing Board and/or member responsibilities, contact the Office of Community Standards, 240 Student Center, (516) 463-6913.
