A Student’s Rights During a Hearing

During a hearing, the Senior Director of Student Judicial Affairs or designee will explain the following rights afforded to him or her during a student conduct process: 

  • A student has the right to receive notice of the charges against him or her.
  • A student has the right to hear a description of the college’s evidence against him or her.
  • A student has the right to present his or her side of the story.
  • A student has the right to have one (1) adult within St. Norbert College (ex: a trained student conduct Process Advisor) OR outside the College and have parent(s)/guardian(s) accompany him or her during a hearing.  
  • A student has the right to provide a character statement prior to the outcome of his or her sanction.
  • A student has the right to appeal the outcome of his or her hearing.

A member of the SNC community who is serving as a student conduct Process Advisor for the student can assist the student with emotional support during the hearing. In a hearing, the student is the primary speaker and the Process Advisor is present only for assistance. A parent/guardian does not have a speaking role in a hearing.  A student should select as a Process Advisor a person whose schedule allows attendance at the scheduled hearing date and time because delays will not normally be allowed due to the scheduling conflicts of a Process Advisor.
