Student Conduct Board

Apply to become a Student Conduct Board Member

The Student Conduct Board (SCB) is seeking undergraduate and graduate students from across the campus community who are genuinely committed to ensuring that the student body lives by the principles outlined in the University Code of Conduct and the Student Honor Code. As a part of the student conduct process at UT Austin, members of the SCB serve on a panel that will hear a student's case involving alleged Institutional Rules violation(s). As providers of the peer perspective on matters of student conduct and academic integrity, SCB members must demonstrate an interest in the University's conduct system. The SCB is committed to ensuring that the membership reflects the diversity of opinions held by various campus constituencies, and we are seeking candidates who reflect the diversity of those on campus.

Membership Requirements

All SCB members must, for the entirety of their term:

  1. remain in good academic and behavioral standing with the university
  2. maintain enrollment in at least 6 hours of coursework at UT Austin, and
  3. maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher.

Board members are typically selected in the spring semester and must be able to commit to serving a one-year appointment with an opportunity for a second. If more board members are needed throughout the year, applications will be accepted and reviewed at that time for member selection. One reference from a UT Austin faculty or staff member who is unaffiliated with the Office of the Dean of Students is also required.

Upon selection, Board members will be required to meet the following expectations:

  1. Attend a mandatory on-board training session: To be held during the week of April 26th. Specific date and time to be determined prior to application due date.
  2. Complete annual FERPA training through UTLearn
  3. Attend at least 3 additional trainings annually (a minimum of 3 trainings each semester (6 over the course of an academic year) will be offered for SCB members to select from)
  4. Sign-up to sit on at least 4 hearing boards annually, and if selected, serve on at least one hearing board annually
  5. Maintain prompt responsiveness to email communication from SCAI and/or the SCB Chair or Co-Chair

If you are unable to prioritize membership on the Board such that will allow you to meet these expectations, please reconsider submitting your application.

Application Components

The SCB membership application process is divided into three parts:

  1. A written application
  2. A completed reference form submitted on your behalf by a faculty or staff member at the University
  3. An interview with Student Conduct and Academic Integrity

Application Timeline

All materials (application, reference form, and essays) must be submitted for your application to be considered, and are due no later than Friday, March 26, 2021 at 5 p.m. CDT.

Interviews will be conducted in groups of 5-8 over Zoom between April 5th and April 9th.
