The Judicial Branch, also known as the Student Conduct Branch, consists of the Student Conduct Steering Committee, the Student Conduct Supreme Hearing Board, and the Student Conduct Hearing Board. The purpose of the Student Conduct Branch of the SGA is to provide an efficient, responsive, and responsible structure that will enable students to receive a fair and impartial hearing in all proceedings concerning student behavior and discipline.
Student Conduct Steering Committee
This committee is made up of the Chief Arbiter, Advisor to the Student Conduct Board, and a member of the Student Affairs Staff. This committee reviews all write-ups and decides if the case should be heard by the Student Conduct Hearing Board, which handles most cases, or the Faculty Hearing Board, which
handles more severe cases that could result in suspension or expulsion from the university.
The Student Conduct Hearing Board
This board is made up of three Arbiters, the Chief Arbiter, the Judicial Liaison, the Student Conduct Officer, and the Student Advocate. This board hears most cases of student misconduct and has the authority to impose punishments to students who fail to follow Concord University policy. Arbiters act as judges in the case, the Student Conduct Officer acts as prosecutor and defends Concord University policy, and the Student Advocate acts as defender and provides defense for accused students and has the best interest of the student in mind. The Judicial Liaison works with the Executive Branch to represent the Student Conduct Branch in the Student Senate and help create rules and regulations for SGA events and elections.
