Student Conduct Board
The Student Conduct Board consists of faculty, staff, students and justices from the Student Government Association Judicial Council. This hearing body is one of the formal resolution options utilized in the University Student Conduct system. The University Student Conduct Board allows students the right to be heard by other UCF community members in situations where they have been charged with violations of the Rules of Conduct.
Service on the board is challenging and satisfying whether you are student, faculty or staff member. It can enhance your academic and/or work experience at the university. Many faculty, staff or students that have served on the board have had a positive experience and believe that their critical thinking and decision making skills were greatly improved over the course of their term.
Any faculty, staff or student at the University of Central Florida is eligible to participate as a member of the Student Conduct Review Board. Although this is a volunteer position, there is an application and interview process in order to select new members.
