Campus Judicial Board

The Campus Judicial Board is an opportunity for members of the Illinois Institute of Technology staff/student/faculty to participate in the university’s judicial process. A Campus Judicial Board will generally include two faculty members, at least one of whom is not in the student’s major department, two students, one Illinois Tech staff members, and one Illinois Tech staff member from the Office of Student Affairs. Campus Judicial Board hearings will be used for cases where the alleged violation(s) could result in sanctions of suspension or expulsion or the allegations are deemed complex in nature.

Responsibilities

The Campus Judicial Board (CJB) at Illinois Institute of Technology is an important part of the University's conduct process. The purpose of board hearings is to assist individuals involved in potential violation of the code of conduct by: redirecting behavior and energies along more acceptable lines, to protect the rights of students, and to assist the charged/accused student with learning and development. Hearings should be conducted in a professional manner which ensures the respect and dignity of all involved parties.
