Faculty, student panelists sought for Community Standards Board

The Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities (OSRR) is recruiting new faculty and student panelists for the Community Standards Board on the West Lafayette campus.

This board is responsible for hearing the most serious cases, both academic and nonacademic, that OSRR is responsible for adjudicating that may result in the suspension or expulsion of a student. The board is composed of faculty, staff and students (both undergraduate and graduate) from across campus who work together to make outcome recommendations that are best for the charged student as well as the community in response to reported concerns.

For all panelists, this is a low time commitment and requires a panelist to participate in only one board hearing per school year after participating in a one-time training. Caitlyn Buchanan, senior student affairs specialist, says that serving on the board is a great opportunity for students who may be interested in pursuing careers in law, criminology, psychology and education, or for students wanting to get more experience developing their critical thinking skills and learning to work with a variety of people to come to those decisions. The board also gives faculty members the opportunity to better understand the University’s processes related to academic misconduct and help students understand the importance of academic integrity. 

OSRR is hoping to recruit multiple new faculty and student panelists for the upcoming school year and welcomes applicants from across campus. OSRR strives to have many diverse perspectives on the panel hearings so as to make the most informed decisions. To learn more and apply, visit the Community Standards Board webpage.
