Who are the Judicial Advisers?
We are students who have been trained in every aspect of the Code of Student Conduct, the document under which students are charged by the University. We are tasked by the Student Government Association with advising and assisting students throughout the Conduct Process. We are independent from the University administration, and exist solely to serve the students.
Why should you meet with an Adviser?
The Conduct Process can at times be stressful and intimidating. Residence Education staff and Deans of Students can reach a better understanding of what occurred when you are calm and prepared; it is therefore important to seek guidance from someone who is experienced and your peer. Sometimes knowing what to say and when can make all the difference.
How We’ll Help You
Clear up Confusion:
- Learn what you have been charged with and why
- Familiarize yourself with the procedures of the University Student Conduct System
- Understand the possible outcomes of your Conference/ Hearing
Prepare you for your Conference / Hearing:
- Go over your case in detail (Note: Judicial Adviser meetings are strictly confidential. We take your privacy very seriously and will never share your information or force you to tell us anything)
- Prepare you to best explain your side of the story during your Conference/ Hearing.
At the Conference / Hearing:
- While we may not speak on your behalf, we can attend the Conference with you and offer support and advice throughout the process.
Is there a fee?
No. Every student already pays into the Student Activities Trust Fund, which funds our program.
