Would you like to be a member of the Florida Memorial University Student Conduct Review Board? The Conduct Review Board (CRB) is a premier leadership opportunity for students and staff interested in gaining experience in the student conduct process. The Division of Student Affairs invites students and staff to serve on the 2021-2022 Conduct Review Board. According to the Student Code of Conduct, board members are “person(s) authorized by the University to determine whether a student has violated the Student Code of Conduct and may recommend sanctions that may be imposed to the Dean of Students or University designee.”
What does the Conduct Review Board do?
The primary responsibility of the Conduct Review Board (CRB) is to hear cases brought against students accused of violating the Florida Memorial University’s Code of Conduct. In a hearing, a panel of faculty/staff and students consider information and witness statements presented and determine if the student is responsible for the violation. If the student is found responsible for the alleged violation, the CRB will make a recommendation to the Assistant Dean of Students.
What does it mean to be a part of the Conduct Review Board?
Becoming a board member means you will be called upon periodically to hear minor and/or major student conduct cases. We are looking for students and staff who can be analytical, objective, ethical and responsible. A Board member must be able to work cooperatively in a group, articulating his or her own point of view while considering the opinions of others. Members of the Board are expected to maintain strict confidentiality and to uphold the ethical standards of the University community, both personally and in their capacity as Board/Committee Members.
Membership Criteria Expectations for Student Board Members:
- Attend mandatory training sessions
- Become knowledgeable about all aspects of the FMU Student Code of Conduct
- Awareness and understanding of the student conduct review process
- Act as an effective and cooperative group member
- Maintain confidentiality at all times
- Commitment to hearing participation (approx. 1-2 hours, 1-3 times a semester). Hearings are scheduled on a case by case basis, Monday through Friday. Board members are assigned to cases depending on their availability, so scheduling is flexible.

- Must be in good academic standing and have no student conduct history with the university
