Subcommittees on Undergraduate and Graduate Student Conduct

The Subcommittee on Undergraduate Student Conduct and the Subcommittee on Graduate Student Conduct are hearing boards composed of faculty and student members and are responsible for reviewing alleged violations of the Student Code (except for violations of the Sexual Misconduct Policy).

  2. appeals of some decisions issued by Disciplinary Officers; and
  3. petitions from persons who have been dismissed from the university for disciplinary reasons and are seeking permission to return.

For more information on the role of the subcommittees, please see the Student Disciplinary Procedures, specifically Section 2.03.
