Hearing board members allow students the right to be heard by other University community
members in situations where they have been charged with violating the Code of Student
Responsibility. Hearing board members are trained and are responsible for reviewing
all presented information and determining whether a student has violated a policy
and recommending sanctions when applicable.
The Code of Student Responsibility provides the policies and procedures governing
student behavior at Stony Brook University.
The Code also describes the process whereby students can file a complaint when their
rights as members of the University community may been violated by other students.
The Administrative hearing board consists of three to five students, staff and faculty
No. Administrative Hearings are scheduled based upon the number of cases, and availability
of board members.
Visit the application page
and fill out the online form. Selection of Board Members will be based upon application, interest, and an interview.
Students who serve on the hearing board gain valuable leadership, critical thinking
and reasoning skills, and contribute to the development of responsible student behavior.
The student conduct process is designed to be primarily educational in nature. Through
our interactions with students, we strive to support student success and the educational
mission of the University. Toward this goal, our process is designed to provide students
with opportunities for dialogue and reflection and to promote the development of responsible
behavior and decision making skills.
