Student Conduct Board

 

 Join the Conduct Board! 

 

The Student Conduct Board is comprised of active students, faculty, and staff, who successfully completed annual training in student conduct regulations and procedures. Student Conduct Board members may serve as Panel Hearing Officers or Respondent Services Advisors. Each role is described in greater detail below. Any case resulting in alleged Title IX violations will only be handled by Student Conduct Board members who have annually undergone a specialized Title IX training section.  

 

Panel Hearing Officers 

Panel Hearing Officers serve on Panel Hearings or Panel Appeal Hearings comprised of 3-6 individuals from the Student Conduct Board, with at least 50% student representation. The Panel Hearing Officers will meet with the Respondent and any witnesses and/or alleged victims and review information to determine whether a student is “responsible” or “not responsible” for their charge(s).

 

A Hearing Administrator is also present at Panel Hearings and Panel Appeal Hearings to ensure that the Student Code of Conduct procedures are followed. The Hearing Administrator will answer procedural questions and keep the proceedings focused on issues relevant to the specific allegations.


Respondent Services 

Respondent Services through the Student Conduct Office provides resources, information, and guidance to students who have been charged with violations of the UNF Student Code of Conduct. The goal of respondent services is to ensure that students who are engaged in the conduct process are informed of campus resources and receive assistance with the coordination of services and referrals.


If you are a student who has been accused of misconduct, you may contact the Student Conduct Office for respondent services assistance. A list of qualified Respondent Advocates can be found in the Student Conduct Office.
