University Conduct and Appeals Boards

What are the University Conduct and Appeals Boards?

The University Conduct and Appeals Boards are comprised of students, faculty and staff. The University Conduct Board hears cases of alleged violations of the UNL Student Code of Conduct.

Board Members consider and ask questions about information presented during the hearing; discuss information with other Board members; and determine whether or not a student or student organization violated the Student Code of Conduct. After a finding of responsibility, Board Members listen to recommended sanctions, and then collaborate with one another to impose sanctions that balance the developmental and educational needs of the student with the safety and integrity of the UNL community. The Appeals Board conducts a review of a student’s written appeal of decisions made by the University Conduct Board.
