Become a Member of the Student Conduct Committee
Sometimes the students we work with make mistakes or engage in activities that aren't in alignment with University values, ethics, or policies. At these times, it is our responsibility as student affairs practitioners to work with students to help them learn from their mistakes and make deliberative and appropriate decisions about how to administrate the Student Code of Conduct by which our institution and students abide.
Conduct or judicial affairs experience is an expansive and valuable skill set that helps student affairs professionals better understand and successfully navigate the complex and challenging environment around correcting students' behaviors at universities. As a graduate student at OSU, you have the incredible opportunity to get a year's worth of hands on experience working with the Student Conduct Committee. This committee works to adjudicate Student Conduct cases and makes recommendations about enforcement of conduct to the larger university community. Committee members receive intensive training and support throughout their tenure and leave with skills that will help them be successful in their careers after graduate school. The committee selects members every spring with applications coordinated by the Vice President for the Council of Graduate Students. For more information about the application process, click here.
Additional Committee Opportunities
In addition to Conduct, there are opportunities to serve on university communities involving intellectual property, academic misconduct, and the Council of Student Affairs. Each of these committees is an extraordinary opportunity to expand your professional expertise and merit and will help you be more competitive in the job market.
