Hearing Council Application

Dear Applicant:

Thank you for your interest in the University of Louisville’s Student Conduct Hearing Council. The University Student Conduct Hearing Council provides an opportunity for students to serve the University community, develop life-long skills in facilitating and resolving conflicts, critical thinking, assertiveness, empathic listening, moral and ethical decision making, and promote civility and citizenship within the University of Louisville community.

The Student Conduct Hearing Council is comprised of students, faculty, and staff. The Student Conduct Hearing Council hears cases which involve students or student organizations that have been charged with violating the Student Code of Conduct. Council members undergo a thorough educational training to help develop the skills necessary for serving on the Student Conduct Hearing Council.

The Student Conduct Hearing Council will be utilized for all formal hearings. The hearing board will be comprised of three members chosen from the pool of trained Student Conduct Hearing Council members. The hearing board will hear information and make recommendations regarding findings and sanctions to be imposed, if any, to the Assistant Dean of Students.

Student applicants for the Student Conduct Hearing Council must be full-time undergraduate (12 credit hours) or graduate students (9 credit hours), at the University of Louisville. A minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.75 is required. The Dean of Students Office will verify GPA and class standing.

Academic or non-academic violations committed at the University of Louisville must be disclosed. Prior violations will not automatically disqualify applicants but are taken into consideration by the selection committee. Staff members in the Dean of Students Office will determine whether to invite applicants for an interview with the Assistant Dean of Students, or designee, based on the quality of the written application. Each applicant will be notified by the Dean of Students Office when a decision has been made regarding the student’s application.

Please fill out the attached application form and answer all of the questions to the best of your ability.

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you!
