Student Conduct Hearing Board Training©
Driving Force
Core
How is a case referred to the Hearing Board for review?
Ground Roots
for a solid foundation
OUR MISSION
OUR PHILOSOPHY
To embrace the opportunity to
educate
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
Remember!
Any university member be it a student, faculty, or staff can file a complaint....
Disciplinary Conference
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 ....
Hearing option

" I am NOT responsible"

Or

"I DO NOT AGREE with the sanctions..."


Preparing for a Hearing
BOTH the
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.
A Student Development Process
the hearing process
Role of the Hearing Board
To Search for the truth!

Designed to discover the source of the problem and find a reasonable solution

Help student grow through preventative and corrective measures

Designed for BOTH the Complainant and Respondent to give their accounts of the incident and to be heard.
REMEMBER: THE RESPONDENT MAY CHOOSE TO REMAIN SILENT!

To Determine if the accused student is responsible based on a preponderance standard.


Preponderance-of-the-Evidence
"51% more likely than not"
is the accused responsible?
51%
Complainant's Role
bears the burden of proving their complaint against the accused student and share their account of the incident
Respondent's Role
has the right to remain silent during a hearing
and this will not be used against him or her nor is it an admission of guilt
Fact Finding and
Questioning
Who?
What?
When?
Where?
Why?
How?
Tell me more?
Please explain?
Develop a timeline.
wHOA!
Don't rush to judgement!
Was there sufficient information to support the charge?
Did the COMPLAINANT prove their complaint?
Deliberation Phase
Review the Charges
Compile all the Information
Determine Responsibility

Based on a majority vote by the members, decide a decision of responsible or not responsible.

Focus on
Open-Ended
Ask many!
Did the violation occur?
Consistency
