The All University Hearing Board (AUHB) is comprised of the seven (7) justices of the ASCSU Supreme Court, representatives from specific communities or areas that may be subject to proceedings before the AUHB, to be identified and appointed by the Director, and two (2) staff members from the Student Resolution Center.  Each individual on the AUHB shall serve two year terms and be trained regarding conflict resolution and student conduct policies, procedures and philosophies.

For each AUHB case to be heard, a committee comprised of AUHB members shall be formed to hear the case and include the following:

  1. Three members from the ASCSU Supreme Court, who are selected by the President of ASCSU.  The Chair of the AUHB committee hearing the case shall be one of these three members and designated by the President of ASCSU;
  2. One member from the specific community or area of the student organization being reviewed (i.e.:  a member of a fraternity or sorority, a sport club, or a faith based organization) as identified and approved by the Director; and
  3. One staff member from the Student Resolution Center, to be appointed by the Director.

Vacancies will be filled promptly by the responsible party from the areas set forth above.  As necessary, alternate members, such as ASCSU leaders or students designated by the Director, who have received appropriate training, may serve to achieve a quorum over academic breaks if appointed members are not reasonably available.

The steps in the discipline process for student organizations are below – click each heading for more information.

Any member of the University or larger community may report alleged misconduct involving a student club or organization. This process is initiated through the submission of a written account of the incident to Student Conduct Services or the respective advising staff or student leaders (i.e. Student Leadership, Involvement, and Community Engagement, Campus Activities, Fraternity and Sorority Life, Sport Clubs, ASCSU). Reports should be submitted as soon as possible after the event takes place. In cases in which a University staff member is notified of an incident from an outside person or entity, the staff member may document the call and prepare the charging report. In cases in which the reporting person fears retribution, the name may be withheld by the reporting staff member at the discretion of the Director. Anonymous calls or reports may warrant additional investigation to substantiate the validity of the complaint.

After reviewing the written report, the Director (or designee) determines whether there is sufficient reason to charge the student organization with a violation of the Student Conduct Code through the information provided in the written report or through further investigation. If a hearing is warranted, the case may be referred to the AUHB or hearing officer, depending on the severity of the case or the student organization’s conduct history.

If the incident is referred to the AUHB, the Chair shall identify members to serve and convene for a preliminary review meeting within two (2) weeks.

The AUHB shall review all relevant information, and develop questions for the hearing, review information regarding the organization, and consider restorative opportunities that may repair harm to others caused by the incident.

At the conclusion of the preliminary review meeting, the AUHB shall schedule the hearing to occur within one (1) week, and notify the President or designated student leadership of the Respondent student organization as set forth below.
