Conduct Process Advisors
An advisor is a member of the University community, preferably a full-time faculty or professional staff member, who is not an attorney and who assists a student by providing support throughout the conduct process. Please note that neither family members nor attorneys may serve as advisors. Both complainants and accused students have the right to an advisor. A student may secure names of advisors trained in the University's conduct process from the Office of Student Conduct. It is the individual student's responsibility to seek out an advisor if he or she wishes to have one. Failure to secure an advisor is not grounds for an appeal.An advisor, upon request of of a student, can:
- Assist an accused student in the preparation of a response to a charge;
- Accompany the complainant or the accused student to any meeting with a Conduct Officer, University Review Board and/or Appellate Board, including the Educational Conference and formal hearings;
- Assist the complainant or the accused student in the preparation of any appeals.
