Student Misconduct Panel

Purpose or FunctionThe purpose of the Student Misconduct Panel (SMP) is to provide trained faculty, staff and students who are eligible to adjudicate high-level student misconduct cases on individual Student Misconduct Hearing Panels (SMHP), including but not limited to student sexual misconduct.  In addition, the SMP will be charged with rendering an outcome regarding a student’s request for an appeal, except for appeals that are academic in nature.  Student Misconduct Hearing Panels may be convened year around, including summer.   

When serving on Student Misconduct Hearing Panels, members of the SMP will determine whether a student has committed a violation under the Student Code of Conduct and, if needed, recommend appropriate sanctions. Due to the nature of this function, members of the SMP are required to attend a mandatory training, which incorporates appropriate adjudication methods when hearing student misconduct cases and appeals.

MembershipMembership will be based on recommendations by College Deans for faculty members, Staff Advisory Council (SAC) for staff members, and the Office of the Associate Dean of Students

(OADS) for student members.  Due to the nature of this function, final determination of eligibility to serve on the SMP for recommendations will be made by the Office of the Associate Dean of Students in consultation with the Office of Employee Relations/Compliance Services.

Each College Dean, with the exception of the Dean of Graduate Studies, will recommend two (2) faculty members to serve on the SMP. Full-time Professor, Associate, Assistant, and Tenure and Non-Tenure Track Faculty are eligible to serve on the panel.  Faculty appointments will be for a two-year term ending May 31st. Due to the nature of the service, recommended faculty should be available for service year around, including summers, during their terms. Faculty who work from a distance, outside of Corpus Christi, Texas are not eligible to serve on the panel.

The Staff Advisory Council will recommend a pool of ten (10) full-time staff members to serve on SMP. Staff appointments will be for a two-year term ending on May 31st.  

Office of the Associate Dean of Students will select five (5) students to serve on the SMP. Student appointments will be one year ending on May 31st. The Office of the Associate Dean of Students will coordinate obtaining appointments for vacant positions. Student, faculty and staff appointments may be renewed for another term, pending OADS approval.  

For questions regarding interpretation of appointments and terms for SMP, please contact the OADS.
