Student Conduct Committee

About the Student Conduct Committee

The Student Conduct Committee (SCC) is a hearing body comprised of faculty, staff, and students who review potential violations of the FIU Student Conduct and Honor Code. This hearing body is one of the formal resolution options available to students and provides an opportunity to be heard by fellow community members. The purpose of the SCC is to be educational in redirecting behavior, to increase student awareness of behavioral expectations, and to protect the rights of the student by providing a process that is fundamentally fair.

Being a member of the SCC allows a student to contribute to the FIU community while simultaneously gaining skills and experiences that will translate to a multitude of careers and fields. Members of the SCC have the opportunity to develop their leadership and critical thinking skills while engaging in thoughtful consideration of different viewpoints. Through the committee, students also have the chance to form relationships and connections with a variety of faculty and staff members.

Students have the opportunity to earn Global Learning Medallion points through participation on the Student Conduct Committee. Not already a Global Learning Medallion student? Students can sign up at
