Greetings, UW Students-
The Office of Community Standards and Student Conduct is currently seeking new student members for the University Disciplinary Committee (UDC). The University Disciplinary Committee is comprised of students and faculty who hear disciplinary cases on behalf of the University. Students who have allegedly violated the Student Conduct Code can appear before the University Disciplinary Committee or may choose to have an informal hearing with a Community Standards and Student Conduct Hearing Officer. Additionally, the UDC hears appeals of cases in which a student may have been found responsible for a violation of the code but the student disagrees with the initial finding or sanctions.
New student members will begin their one-year term in February 2016 and will complete their term at the end of December 2016. In order to serve on the University Disciplinary Committee, students must be enrolled full-time (either undergraduate or graduate) and be in good academic standing. Additionally, students must be able to commit to meeting as a committee 3-5 hours per month and should be interested in gaining leadership skills through serving on this University Wide Committee.
Students are selected at random from those students who identify an interest in the University Disciplinary Committee and then training is provided for those selected. This year’s first required training for all new UDC members will be held during Winter quarter in February and details will be provided to selected students.
If you are interested in submitting your name for random selection of students to serve on the UDC, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, please include your name, major, college or school, and year in school. This is the only information I need prior to randomly selecting students. The deadline to submit your name for random selection is 5pm on Friday, January 15, 2016. Students will be notified via email whether or not they have been selected by Tuesday, January 19, 2016.
Thank you and best wishes for the beginning of the term.
