There are a total of twelve students on the Committee on Standards (COS) and the Organizational Adjudication Committee (OAC) each term. Half of the student membership is elected each spring by the student body and the other half is appointed annually by the Dean of the College.
Requirements for membership are as follows:
Student members must be sophomores, juniors, and seniors with no prior Suspension from the College and not on College Probation during their terms of service. Additionally, students cannot be on Academic Probation. Students in the community who are on leave terms but are in the Hanover area are eligible to serve.
Attendance at a COS/OAC training sessions is required for new members.
The Dean of the College Division in collaboration with Student Assembly is excited to announce the creation of an The Organizational Adjudication Committee (OAC) Student Board for allegations of minor misconduct regarding student organizations. Through feedback from students, a request was generated for a more transparent organizational adjudication system that allowed students to hold their peer groups accountable for behavior that disrupted the College’s climate.
This proposal, developed by representatives from Student Assembly, Greek Letter Organizations, Undergraduate Judicial Affairs, with feedback from the Organizational Adjudication Committee and the Committee on Organization and Policy (COP), recommended a two-term pilot for a student board to hear minor misconduct allegations of student organizations. The OAC-Student Board will be comprised of a broad selection of 50 student representatives, 25 students elected by SA and 25 students appointed by the Dean of the College. There will be five members per hearing. The OAC-Student Board is currently accepting applications so please apply.
Applications are available on the Undergraduate Judicial Affairs Office (UAJO) website www.dartmouth.edu/~uja/ (click here for application) or in the UJAO, 5 Rope Ferry Road, Room 306.
