Join the UCB
Thank you for your interest in the University Conduct Board (UCB)! The UCB provides an opportunity for students to serve the University community by promoting civility and citizenship within the University community. The UCB adjudicates hearings for students going through the university conduct process. Members of the UCB also promote awareness of the Code of Student Conduct via outreach activities. As a member of the UCB you will gain skills in critical thinking, public speaking, and collaboration.
