Judicial Board

The Judicial Board hears cases of alleged violations of the College's Academic Honor Code and Social Code.  

The Board determines if a charged student is responsible for the violation(s) and, if found responsible, makes recommendations to the Dean of Students regarding possible sanctions.  Generally, three students and two faculty members comprise the Board for Academic Honor Code hearings and five students for Social Code hearings.  All hearings are moderated by the student Chair or Vice-Chair.  For more detailed information about the Judicial Board and its procedures and processes, please review the Student Handbook.

Judicial Board applications become available in late January. Faculty, staff, and students are all invited to nominate individuals to apply for a position on the Judicial Board. Applications are due around the end of the second week of classes of the spring semester, and selection interviews take place during the first two weeks of February. Training for new and returning Judicial Board members is mandatory and takes place after final exams in May.

Any questions concerning the Judicial Board may be directed to Katherine O'Grady, Judicial Board Advisor, at kogrady@bowdoin.edu or (207) 725-3493.
