Vacant Subcommittee Seats to be Filled
Dear Campus Leaders and Students:
The Senate Committee on Student Discipline and the Office for Student Conflict Resolution are now seeking to fill vacant student and faculty seats on the Subcommittee on Undergraduate Student Conduct (SUSC) and the Subcommittee on Graduate Student Conduct (SGSC).
Service on these committees is a challenging and satisfying way for students and faculty to enhance their academic experience. In addition to the actual review of discipline cases, training activities help committee members enhance their abilities to organize time, develop critical thinking skills, and to improve communication skills. Some students who have served on the committee have achieved great success in law school and other professional careers. Many students felt that their experience on the committee made a definite positive impact on their abilities to interview articulately and confidently. Many faculty members have said that they have appreciated the opportunity to work with students on the committee and to gain a better understanding of the challenges students in our community face.
The Subcommittees are a part of the student discipline system of the UI Senate and are responsible for reviewing charges of violations of the Student Code.
Minimum qualifications of student members are:
- A student enrolled full-time at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus,
- Approximately two full semesters still required for the degree,
- Good academic standing with at least a 2.5 grade point average.
Minimum qualifications of faculty members are:
- A faculty member with a faculty appointment,
- Primary appointment to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus,
- Demonstrated experience teaching, advising, and/or developing students.
Please consider filling out an application for yourself or encouraging fellow faculty and students to apply for this important and valuable opportunity to serve the campus community.
Chair, Senate Committee on Student Discipline
Interim Executive Director, Senate Committee on Student Discipline
Interim Director, Office for Student Conflict Resolution
All applications must be submitted by Friday, February 27, 2015.
