Office of Judicial Affairs seeks students for University Judicial Board/Peer Education Team
The Office of Judicial Affairs announces the recruitment of students to participate on the University Judicial Board/Peer Education Team (UJB/PET). The mission of the UJB/PET is to participate in judicial hearings and develop and implement outreach activities that encourage civility and good citizenship within the Syracuse University community. The UJB/PET provides an opportunity for students to be leaders in the University community, promoting civility and citizenship, while also developing skills in facilitation and conflict resolution.
The UJB/PET is charged with hearing and resolving cases involving students or student organizations that have allegedly violated the Syracuse University Code of Student Conduct (except in cases involving academic dishonesty). In addition, students selected for the UJB/PET will be expected to create outreach activities on topics such as personal safety, consensual sex, alcohol and other drugs, living in a diverse community and personal values. Members will undergo an intensive training program to develop the skills necessary for this position.
Applicants for the UJB/PET must be matriculated full-time undergraduate, graduate, or law students at either Syracuse University or SUNY-ESF. Both on-campus and off-campus residents are encouraged to apply! A grade point average of 2.5 or higher is required. Disciplinary or academic violations committed at Syracuse University or elsewhere must be disclosed. Prior infractions will not automatically disqualify applicants, but are taken into consideration by the selection committee.
After applications have been submitted, the selection committee will determine whether to invite applicants to participate in a group interview process. Based on the quality of the applicant’s submitted application and their performance during the group interview, successful candidates will advance to the individual interview for final consideration. The Office of Judicial Affairs will notify applicants when the final decisions are made. Syracuse University is comprised of a diverse student body; therefore it is imperative that the UJB/PET reflects that diversity. Students of all backgrounds, interests and abilities are encouraged to apply.
If being a member of the UJB/PET is something that you’re interested in, please complete the online application form for the University Judicial Board/Peer Education Team at: http://students.syr.edu/judicial/ujb/. And if you know other students who might be interested please pass this along! The completed application should be submitted online by Monday, Feb. 21, at 5 p.m.
