Welcome to the
We would like to thank you for your interest in becoming a hearing panel member. We hope that this will be a rewarding and educational experience for you. This training program will introduce you to core concepts in due process, conduct decision making, and the educational goals of discipline in a college and university setting. The hearing panel training program will consist of two training sessions, an online training program and a classroom-based training program. After the completion of the online training program, all individuals will complete a classroom-based training session that will last approximately 2 hours. You will be notified at a later time when the classroom-based training sessions will occur. The overall training program will take approximately 3 hours to complete.
This online training session consists of 4 training modules concerning the Student Code of Conduct, the Judicial Process, the Hearing Process, and Ethical Considerations for a judicial panel member. Each module will take approximately fifteen (15) minutes to complete. You may directly access these training modules by clicking on the link to the left or by following the links at the bottom of the module pages.
You may complete all training modules in one setting or in multiple settings. However, all four modules must be completed before the classroom-based training, which will be scheduled soon. We recommend that you download and print the assessment preview now. As you progress through the training, you may answer the assessment questions. After completing all training modules, you will be asked to take the online assessment by clicking on the provided link. After submitting your answers, your assessment will automatically be scored. You will be required to obtain a passing score on the assessment in order to be certified as a hearing panel member. We will contact all hearing trainees that have successfully completed the assessment for enrollment in the classroom-based training.

What is the Office of Student Conduct?
The Office of Student Conduct exists to serve the students of the Missouri State community. This office is responsible for the implementation of the Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities, adjudicating alleged violations of the Code, safeguarding student rights, and dealing with emergency situations involving students.
All Missouri State students possess certain rights and privileges together with corresponding duties and responsibilities. Every student in entitled to freedom of action as a necessary expression of scholarly activities. Each student is due respect of his/her personal dignity and property. In turn, he/she is responsible for maintaining standards of personal behavior which do not interfere with the rights of others or with the effective functioning of the University as a center of learning.
Keep in mind as you progress through this training program that each student should be regarded as a person deserving individual attention, consideration, respect and fairness and is held to a high standard of behavior, in order to protect the campus and to promote student development. Further, all facts should be fully and carefully considered before resolving any case. The success of a judicial body is contingent upon the conviction of its members to maintain a nurturing, academic environment while affording individual students maximum personal freedom within institutional guidelines. The University's Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities and Student Conduct is intended to be used as educational tools and should not be adversarial.
