Student volunteers needed for University conduct boards

September 12, 2018

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Students can gain leadership skills and grow their resume by serving on a board with the Office of Student Conduct. The Office of Student Conduct, a unit of Penn State Student Affairs, is currently accepting student applications for the University Conduct Board (UCB) and the Student Organization Conduct Committee (SOCC).

The UCB is comprised of a faculty or staff chairperson and additional faculty, staff and student members. The SOCC consists of a student facilitator and additional student members. The boards hear cases related to alleged University Code of Conduct violations for individuals or organizations.

In addition to leadership skills, students who serve on a conduct board gain valuable critical thinking and reasoning skills and help to make the campus community a better place.

Student members will be asked to complete a full-day training, as well as additional training exercises and shadow hearings.

To learn more or apply to serve on the UCB or SOCC, visit or contact Meg Brower, assistant director in the Office of Student Conduct, at Applicants will receive more information on training dates and times.
