Looking back on this past year, University Judiciary experienced growth in all areas of which we work. University Judiciary revamped the extensive outreach programs to better ensure the mission of proactively educating the University of Georgia community was accomplished. Under the Director of Public Affairs for the first half of the year, an innovative campus initiative was launched on the important role each student plays in the University community and how misconduct can have a negative impact on the rest of our community. The second half of the year, University Judiciary partnered with the residence halls to target our message to first-year students, an at-risk population.
We also continued to recruit and thoroughly train exceptional students for membership. This past April, 22 of our provisional members were inducted into the organization as active members. Furthermore, through the leadership of our Director of Operations, we have expanded our alumni engagement efforts in the form of a football tailgate and our second annual Alumni Panel, where current members greatly benefited from a Q&A session with the alumni. A strong alumni base is essential to maintain a strong organization.
Most importantly, we continue to conduct a fundamentally fair conduct process. This year, the Directors of Case Administration and numerous general body members have continued to address differences in training classes by conducting a reeducation retreat, creating standardized hearing protocols, and adopting a sanctioning guide. As our past Executive Director Andrew Roberts said,
“We have ensured that our members remain ready to serve our critical university function.”
Lastly, University Judiciary is excited to welcome Jess Pense and Rebecca Scarbro to the office of Student Conduct!
