Student Conduct Hearing Board Training©
Transcript of Student Conduct Hearing Board Training©
How is a case referred to the Hearing Board for review?
for a solid foundation
To embrace the opportunity to
a student who violates the Student Code of Conduct by applying appropriate action that modifies and redirects inappropriate behavior into productive behavior.
To enhance the University by providing a
safe and civil environment through conduct standards, disciplinary processes, training, and intervention efforts.
So what happens if
a student commits a violation?
Any Student, Staff, or Faculty member at Southeastern may file a complaint of misconduct against a student
First, we receive a complaint
Any university member be it a student, faculty, or staff can file a complaint....
Then, we notify the accused student to come in for a Disciplinary Conference to discuss the incident and charges.
two things can happen...
we resolved THIS ONE..
"Yes, I am responsible."
At this stage:
The student plead responsible to the charges and accepts
one or more sanctions
imposed per violation.
By doing so, the student waives his/her rights to a hearing and an appeal.
NO DOUBT ABOUT IT...
If an incident rises to a level of Separation from the UNIVERSITY, the case is referred ....
" I am NOT responsible"
"I DO NOT AGREE with the sanctions..."
Preparing for a Hearing
Complainant AND Respondent
Must view all evidence before the hearing including video, audio, pictures, witness lists and written documentation.
Each may have witnesses to appear at the hearing
May have an attorney or adviser present
However, the student represents him/herself at the hearing.
