Student Conduct Board Training

Initial Training

The initial training for all individuals who have applied to be a member of the Student Conduct Board (SCB) consists of three interactive training sessions, held both virtually and in person, and online modules. In total, initial training is about 8 hours, spread over the course of 3-4 weeks, mostly at your own pace.  

The interactive training sessions include our Conduct Board 101, our Listening and Questioning Activity, and our Mock Hearing. Each applicant MUST participate in all three interactive training sessions to become an active member of the Student Conduct Board.

Initial Student Conduct Board training is generally held at the beginning of each semester (Fall, Spring, and Summer).
