Judicial Boards (J-Boards)

Student Judicial Boards (“J-boards”) are composed of a cross-section of students who provide educational and developmental peer accountability. Members are selected each academic year through an application process conducted by Student Life with assistance from the Student Government Association Judiciary, and must be in good academic, labor and social standing.

J-boards have been empowered by the Student Government Association and the Vice President for Student Life to hear charges of residential and campus violations referred to them by Student Life. They have the authority to make decisions of “Responsible” or “Not Responsible,” and sanction students accordingly. Should the J-board determine during the course of the hearing that a sanction of social probation is possible, the case will be referred to an Administrative Hearing Officer.

Appeals of Judicial Board decisions will be referred to an Administrative Hearing Officer.
