There are many opportunities for members of the University community to join us in creating a safe, civil campus environment.
The Scarlet Honor Council
The Scarlet Honor Council is a a team of students who serve on the University Hearing Board and Campus Appeals Committee. Council members also educate the University community on academic integrity and other ethical issues.

Faculty and Staff University Hearing Board Members
The University Hearing Board is composed of student members of the Scarlet Honor Council, faculty, and staff. The Hearing Board hears cases of alleged student misconduct. The board determines whether the accused student has violated the University policy and, if so, recommends a sanction.
Members of the University Hearing Board may also serve on the Campus Appeals Committee, which considers appeals from students contesting the outcome of their disciplinary cases.
The Hearing Board is open to all Rutgers faculty and staff. A training session is required. Interested parties should complete an interest form. A member of the Student Conduct staff will contact you about training.
Campus Advisors are volunteers who help members of the Rutgers community navigate the disciplinary system. Advisors can:
- help community members understand the disciplinary process
- provide support and advice
- help complaint parties and accused students prepare for hearings and other disciplinary proceedings
- help students prepare appeals
Any member of the University community is eligible to become a Campus Advisor. A training session is required. For more information, please complete an interest form. A member of the Student Conduct staff will contact you about training.
