Student Conduct Committee

The Student Conduct Committee hears cases involving student suspensions of more than 10 days, student dismissals, or cases referred to the committee.

Proceedings of the Student Conduct Committee shall be governed by the Administrative Procedures Act, chapter 34.05 RCW and by the Model rules of procedure, chapter 10-08 WAC. If there is a conflict between the two rules, chapter 10-08 WAC will be followed.

The Student Conduct Committee shall consist of five members:

  • Two full-time students appointed by the student government (ASLCC);
  • Two faculty members appointed by the faculty association;
  • One administrative staff member (other than an administrator serving as a student conduct or conduct review officer) appointed by the president at the beginning of the academic year.

The administrative staff member shall serve as the chair of the committee and may take action on preliminary hearing matters prior to convening the committee. The chair shall receive annual training on protecting victims and promoting accountability in cases involving allegations of sexual misconduct.

Hearings may be heard by a quorum of three members of the committee so long as one faculty member and one student are included on the hearing panel. Committee action may be taken upon a majority vote of all committee members attending the hearing.
