Student Conduct Advisor Program

Need help preparing for a hearing? Don't know anyone who can help advise you? We do!   

  • Students may request assistance through the Student Conduct Advisor (SCA). 
  • The program is a resource for students going through or involved in the student conduct process. 
  • The SCA can provide students with guidance on how to best prepare for a hearing, appeal request or other student conduct process/meeting. 
  • The SCA is a neutral party and has no influence on the outcome of the case and is only involved to the extent the student wishes. 
  • Participation in the program is optional.

What services are provided by the Student Conduct Advisor?

  • Review the steps and phases of a conduct procedure such as a hearing.
  • Assist students with preparing their own case by learning how to construct effective opening/closing statements and develop effective witness questions.
  • Answer questions about student conduct policies and procedures.
  • Clarify student rights available to students in the hearing process.
  • Help students feel more comfortable and confident going into their hearing.

What is the difference between the Student Conduct Advisor and my Advocate?

  • An advocate is any member of the campus community (student, staff or faculty) who may attend student conduct meetings/hearings at the request of a student complainant or respondent.
  • Advocates provide advocacy, support and/or guidance to their student during the student conduct process.
  • The SCA is neutral party who provides information/education to a student complainant or respondent about the student conduct process.
  • For more information consult the FAQ page about the role of advocates.
