Judicial hearing officers needed

In preparation for becoming a hearing officer, each person must take part in a two-and-one-half hour training session that includes an explanation and review of the hearing process, a discussion of the Code of Student Conduct, a "walk-through" of an actual hearing, and rape and sexual assault awareness.

After completing the training, hearing officers are contacted on an as-needed basis. Working in three- to five-member teams, usually including faculty, staff and student representatives, hearing boards review cases and forward recommendations to the dean of students, who is responsible for notifying students and imposing any disciplinary sanctions.
