Student Conduct Committee

Committee Role

The Student Conduct Committee (SCC) is a hearing body comprised of faculty and students that review potential violations of the FIU Student Code of Conduct. The hearing body is one of the formal resolutions options available to students have their case resolved. This resolution option gives the student an opportunity to have their case heard by fellow members of the FIU community. During a hearing, the SCC comprises of one faculty/staff member and two students. In supporting the educational mission of the Office of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution the SCC strives to redirect behavior, increase student awareness of behavioral expectations, and protect the rights of students involved in our process by providing a fundamentally fair process.
