The Sexual Offense Review Board is one of the highest ranking hearing boards in the conduct process trained specifically to adjudicate alleged violations of this policy involving sexual offense, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking. Sexual Offense Review Board membership includes members of the University community. All members are appointed by the Dean of Students. The Dean of Students (or his/her designee) will serve as chair of the Sexual Offense Review Board. When the Sexual Offense Review Board convenes to hear a case, the chair will empanel from the membership a board consisting of three members of the University community, and the chair. No members may have real or perceived conflicts of interest based on their relationships to the respondent or complainant or their knowledge of what occurred outside the Sexual Offense Review Board procedure.
