Conduct Advisors Application Open till June 30!

Apply to be a conduct advisor today!

Conduct Advisors (CAs) are students that will be trained in all aspects of the Code of Student Conduct (CSC). The role of the CA is to assist the student in preparing evidence, questions, and statements.
The CA can answer your questions concerning the Conduct procedures on campus and help you to present the best case for yourself at any level of the system.
The CA may also attend the conference and/or hearing upon request. During the Hearing, the CA may not directly address the Hearing Board, Procedural Advisor, or witnesses. The CA may only whisper or pass notes to the advisee. At the hearing, CAs assure that a student’s procedural rights are protected by the Hearing Board, and provide the necessary information to the advisee.
If you have questions, please contact the SGA Attorney General, Ilina Shah, at
Alternatively, you can visit us in Student Union Room 420 
(Second Floor of the Student Union above the Art Gallery)
Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
