The Peer Review Board (PRB) is a group of students who are trained to hear specific cases.
The PRB includes the following members:
Board – Board members are selected by the Director of Community Standards/designee and the Chairpersons of the PRB. The Presidents/designees of the University Student Senate, the Greek Council, and Hawk Hill Productions shall be invited to participate in the interview process of new Board members.
Chairpersons – Two voting members are selected annually by agreement of the President of the University Student Senate/designee and the Director of Community Standards/designee.
Moderator/Resource Person – The Moderator shall advise the PRB on matters such as the type of information that may help in determining if Community Standards were violated and appropriate sanction(s). The Moderator shall also facilitate the appropriate paperwork and record keeping, as well as reserve the hearing space.
The Moderator selects three Board members (which includes one chairperson) to serve on a hearing panel for a particular matter. Board members shall disqualify themselves from serving on a panel if they believe in good faith that they cannot be objective in the matter. The respondent and complainant may object to a member for cause in writing within 24 hours of the written notification of the Board members serving on the panel. The Moderator shall rule on all objections and replace any disqualified members.
