University Appeals Board

The following information is taken from Motion US00/01-6 which revises the charges to the standing University Committees.


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.
