The University Committee for Student Discipline (UCSD) is a group of students, faculty and staff that are trained to hear and resolve allegations of misconduct. They will respond to allegations of misconduct when:
- A student engages in significantly serious misconduct;
- A student conduct officer refers the allegations to the Committee;
- A student rejects the finding of a student conduct officer after an initial conference.
The UCSD only meets on an "as needed" basis. Although there are many members of the UCSD, only five members of the Committee are necessary to participate in a Conduct Review of the allegations. When the UCSD meets to consider allegations the meeting is known as a Conduct Review.
