Hearing Boards

Seeking Board Members

The University Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards (OSC&CS) is seeking Student (Undergraduate and Graduate), Staff, and Faculty applicants for the University Conduct Board. We are also seeking Staff and Faculty Applicants for the Title IX and Sexual Misconduct Boards.

Board Makeup

The University Conduct Board (UCB) is comprised of UToledo Students, Staff, and Faculty, and is responsible for resolving allegations of non-academic student misconduct.
