Leadership Opportunities

The Student Conduct Office annually offers leadership opportunities for both students and faculty/staff.

Students are encouraged to participate as student Hearing Officers, serving on the Student Conduct Board. Student Hearing Officers will listen to and review evidence on cases presented to the hearing board, make a determination of responsibility, and impose sanctions if necessary. In addition to the experience, students also receive one credit for their participation.Eligibility requirements, for students, include having and maintaining minimally a 2.5 GPA, and status as a full-time student in good standing who has completed two semesters at SUNY Cortland before serving as a Hearing Officer.

  
Student Conduct also seeks participation from faculty and staff. Faculty and staff are needed to serve as Hearing Officers on the Student Conduct Board and as an Administrative Hearing Officer. This provides an opportunity for faculty and staff to positively interact with student justices and also have a role in educating students outside the classroom.

Applications are solicited in the fall for the following academic year.  The selection process takes place in April for the spring semester. Following are PDF links for the Student Hearing Officer Application, Faculty/Staff Hearing Officer Application, Nomination Form and/or Recommendation Form as needed. Completed applications and forms may be mailed to or dropped off at Student Conduct, Corey Union, Room 409-B. (Two completed recommendation forms are required for student applications.)
