Student Conduct Hearing Board & Academic Integrity Appeal Board
What is the Student Conduct Hearing Board/Academic Integrity Appeal Board?
The Student Conduct Hearing Board/Academic Integrity Appeal Board is comprised of faculty, staff, and students who are trained in the UNLV Student Conduct process and who are committed to facilitating student learning through the Student Conduct process. Members serve on Hearing Boards of at least three (3) members, which are scheduled throughout the year to determine student/student organization responsibility for violations of the Student Conduct Code and recommend appropriate sanctions to foster student growth and development. The Student Conduct Hearing Board plays an integral role in the adjudication of formal Student Conduct Code cases and ensures that students are given the opportunity to have their cases heard by a representative body of the University community.
What is the time commitment?
Hearing board members are required to attend one training session before being eligible to sit on a hearing board. Additional training may be required as policies and procedures are updated or new topical areas need to be addressed. There is no minimum number of boards to serve on each year, but it is the goal of the Office of Student Conduct to allow each board member to participate as much as scheduling allows.
What is the investigation Team?
The Investigation Team assists in the investigation of alleged violations of the UNLV Student Conduct Code for student clubs and registered student organizations.
