PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT: Community Standards Committee – Call for Members

Looking for an opportunity to serve your UIC community while developing your own skills? We’re currently seeking new members to serve on the Community Standards Committee. The Community Standards Committee, managed through the Office of the Dean of Students, is responsible for hearing cases of alleged violations of the UIC Student Disciplinary Policy. Members are directly responsible for deciding if a violation occurred and determining appropriate sanctions. This committee has the distinction of protecting the interests of the campus community AND the students’ rights. In this capacity, prospective Community Standard Committee members should be free of bias, judgment, or prejudice.

The Community Standards Committee is comprised of faculty, staff, and student members. This provides an opportunity for students, faculty, and staff members to work collaboratively for a common purpose. Prospective student members must be in good academic and conduct standing at UIC. Through participation in the Community Standards Committee, participants will:

  • Enhance active listening skills
  • Learn ethics and conflict resolution skills
