The Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards is seeking student, staff and faculty applicants for the University Conduct Board, as well as for the role of procedural advisor and/or support person for respondents and complainants engaged in the student conduct process.

In addition, employees are encouraged to apply for the Title IX Board.

Students, student groups and student organizations may select the University Conduct Board — or in sexual misconduct cases, the Title IX Board — to adjudicate alleged violations.

The University Conduct Board is composed of UToledo students, staff and faculty, and is responsible for resolving allegations of non-academic student misconduct.

The Title IX Board is made up of UToledo staff and faculty, and is responsible for resolving allegations of sexual misconduct.

“Members of these two boards play an integral role in educating students about their rights and responsibilities as members of the UToledo community and upholding community behavioral standards as outlined in the University Student Code of Conduct,” said Ashleigh J. Wade, associate dean of students and director of the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards.

“The composition of these hearing boards, procedural advisors and support persons must be representative of our diverse campus community,” she added.

Benefits of serving in one of these capacities include:

• Improved communication, critical thinking and conflict resolution skills;

• Opportunity to work with a diverse group of UToledo community members;

• Insight into University processes and resources;

• Experience in a professional environment;

• Specialized training regarding student conduct and Title IX; and

• Service opportunity for UToledo students and tenure-track faculty.

Those applying must uphold UToledo’s community standards as defined by the University Student Code of Conduct and attend required training sessions. They must honor the principles of student accountability, confidentiality and objectivity. And they must share in the task of making difficult decisions that support the ethical and behavioral standards of the UToledo campus and be willing to set aside personal and/or organizational perspectives in order to establish accountability and maintain community standards.

Applications will be accepted through Monday, Feb. 24. Go to the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards website.
