The following information is taken from Motion
US00/01-6 which revises the charges to the standing University Committees.
UNIVERSITY APPEALS BOARD
CHARGE & RESPONSIBILITIES:
The University Appeals Board shall be, as designated in OAR 571-21-070,the
final appeals body within the Student Conduct Program. As set forth in
OAR 571-21-055(4), this Board shall be responsible for reviewing substantive
or procedural appeals from the decisions of the Student Conduct Hearings
Board.Whereas the Student Conduct Committee oversees the entire Student
Conduct Program structure, the University Appeals Board is part of the
adjudication process for complaints made against students. The University
Appeals Board does not hear live testimony; rather, it evaluates records
and reviews arguments of a case in previous tribunals. Appeals are allowed
only in limited circumstances.
Membership of the University Appeals Board is fixed by OAR Statute (OAR
571-21-070(2)). It consists of 3 faculty and 3 students. Members may be
reappointed, but no member may serve more than two consecutive terms.
The University Appeals Board shall report to the University Senate.
At a minimum this report shall be in the form of an annual written report
submitted by the Committee Chair to the Secretary of the University Senate
no later than the final University Senate meeting in May. The committee
shall also make additional written or oral reports to the Senate as necessary.
See also US01/02-4
which is a process for filling vacancies on elected committees:
7.1 Since 1991-92, all non-elected committees established by faculty legislation
are appointed by the Committee on Committees, a committee appointed by
the University Senate. The Secretary of the Faculty shall coordinate the
elections of faculty to elective committees. The secretary shall arrange
for the filling of vacancies on elected committees and councils by notifying
the next eligible candidate, determined in descending order of the number
of votes received in the most recent election for the relevant committee
or council. If no eligible candidate is available to fill the vacancy,
the Senate Executive Committee, with advice and recommendations from the
Committee on Committees, shall appoint an eligible faculty member to fill
the vacancy until the next regular election cycle. Filling a vacancy shall
not preclude the appointee from standing for election to the same committee
or council during the next election cycle if eligible.
