Role of Advisors
A student conduct advisor can be any member of the University of Delaware community (student, faculty or staff member.) A student conduct advisor may assist a student at any point during the student conduct process, such as attending a case intake meeting or administrative hearing with a student, helping to determine what witnesses to present at an administrative hearing, or assisting in writing an appeal. The people listed below have volunteered to assist students and are trained in all aspects of the University’s student conduct process.
Contacting an Advisor
You are encouraged to contact a student conduct advisor as soon as you decide to make use of this service. Please contact only one advisor at a time. Contacting a student conduct advisor well in advance of a case intake meeting or administrative hearing will increase the opportunities you can meet with the advisor. Advisors will most likely want to meet with you in person (if possible), even if your initial contact with them is via e-mail or telephone. It is also recommended you have all relevant information (such as the incident report, e-mail notification of charges, etc.) available when you meet with an advisor.
Before or during an administrative hearing
When seeking assistance from a student conduct advisor in preparing for an administrative hearing, the advisor may help you to determine the information you wish to share during your hearing, develop questions to ask of the presenting party, anticipate questions you may be asked or help you write a statement you will read during the hearing.
If you wish to have an advisor attend an administrative hearing with you, you must notify the Office of Student Conduct as soon as possible so that your advisor’s availability can be considered when scheduling the hearing. However, during the hearing your advisor will not speak on your behalf nor represent you. You are expected to present your own information and speak for yourself. If your advisor accompanies you to the hearing, you are welcome to consult with the advisor during the hearing.
During the appeal process
You are responsible for writing and submitting your own appeal. While a student conduct advisor may help you to identify and organize your points to be included in your appeal, you are responsible for preparing your appeal according to the established guidelines and submitting it by the deadline. An advisor will not necessarily edit your appeal or fix grammatical errors.
