Student Conduct Board

The purpose of the SCB is to create a peer led body that will be empowered to resolve cases of alleged violations of the University Rules of Student Conduct which are listed in the Roosevelt University Student Handbook. SCB hearings will consist of three members drawn from the pool of eligible student board members. Upon review of a case, the board makes a determination as to whether or not a policy violation has occurred and decides what, if any sanctions are to be imposed. Sanctions range from a Disciplinary Warning up to and including Expulsion from the University
