Purpose:

The purpose of the Academic Judicial Committee shall be to determine whether a student has violated College policies or regulations and to recommend appropriate discipline when deemed necessary. When requested by the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, the committee will also review a student appeal when an alleged violation of student rights (for example, regarding the student's grade) is involved.

The selected panel members shall select one of the faculty members on the panel to serve as the panel Chair. The panel Chair shall preside at the committee hearing, unless removed by challenge for cause. In the event of a challenge to the panel Chair, the Committee Chair shall rule on the challenge.  A new panel shall be selected for each student hearing.

Duties:

The committee shall conduct discipline hearings in accordance with the established regulations of the College. Prior to any hearing, a student government representative shall meet with the student and inform the student of his or her rights to due process. Appeals shall be carried out in accordance with the policies set forth in the Student Disciplinary Procedures.
