Advocacy Resources for Students
Preparing for a Judicial Conference or formal hearing before a University Hearing Commission can be time consuming and labor intensive. The Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct allows every student involved in the campus judicial process to be accompanied to a Judicial Conference or Hearing Commission by one advisor.
There are two resources for students which provide expert advice and advocacy along with a detailed inside knowledge of the Campus Judicial Process.
Student Advocates Office
The Student Advocates Office is a service of the university, provided through the Division of Student Affairs. Student advocates are retired university faculty and administrators or Division staff members who are trained to answer your questions about the Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities and Conduct and the campus judicial process. If you choose, an advocate can accompany you to your judicial hearing. Advocates work with students individually and confidentially.
Hours: Monday–Friday 8:00 am–12:00 pm and 1 pm-5 pm
IU Student Association: Department of Student Rights
The Department of Student Rights is a student run service of the IUSA Student Government. Case managers are students who are trained in the Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities and Conduct and the Campus Judicial Process. They can prepare, advise, and can attend your Judicial Conference or Hearing Commission with you. They work with students individually and confidentially.
