Honor Principle

Temporary Hearing Boards

Overview

When the college is not in session, different types of cases are heard by different boards:

  • Cases that would normally go to the J-Board are heard by a Temporary Hearing Board (THB). The THB is composed of five members appointed by the President selected from the Title IX Board (TNB), including at least one student from the J-Board.
  • Sexual misconduct cases will still go to the full TNB when the college is not in session. If a sufficient number of members are not available, they are heard by a three- or five-member hearing board consisting of TNB members selected by the President.
  • Academic misconduct cases are heard by the Administration Committee.
  • Appeals are heard by a three-member panel selected from the Appeals Board, with the Chair of the Appeals Board serving as a non-voting member; if a sufficient number of members are not available, the President will appoint an Appeals Board.
