Students are responsible for knowing the following:
27. The Conduct Council may hear cases referred under this Code. The Council shall be composed of one (1) student affairs administrator, one (1) faculty member or administrator outside of the Division of Student Affairs, and two (2) students who are members of the Honor Board. The Office of Student Conduct reserves the right to modify the Council composition on a case by case basis. The Office of Student Conduct shall provide training and administrative support to the Council.
28. The Office of Student Conduct will make every effort to arrange for Honor Board and faculty members to participate on a Council; however, the timely implementation of a hearing will not be delayed due to members' last minute scheduling conflicts or the inability of Honor Board or Faculty Council to identify Council members to serve. A Council quorum is met when a combination of eligible student, faculty, and administrative representatives are assembled and the complainant does not object to any member for potential bias.
29. Both the findings and the sanctions determined by the Conduct Council shall be regarded as recommendations to the Dean of Student's designee assigned to the hearing.
30. A student who elects to participate in a conduct conference in lieu of a Conduct Council hearing will affirm in writing that his or her right to a hearing is waived and that the full range of sanctions may be imposed, including suspension or expulsion.
31. No student who is charged with a violation of this Code or with a criminal offense may serve as a Council member while the charges against him or her are pending. Members found responsible for a violation or offense will be disqualified from further participation on the Council. The Office of Student Conduct may establish additional grounds and procedures for removal.
