Resources for Advisors
The conduct process can be a challenging experience for any student, and the Center for Student Rights and Responsibilities encourages students to seek the assistance of an advisor. The advisor is there to guide and support the student throughout the conduct process.
Students are strongly encouraged to seek the assistance of an advisor. Students who take advantage of the service of a trained advisor are more fully informed and better prepared as they approach a possible hearing.
