As a part of the student conduct process, SU students are permitted to have a process of advisor of their choosing in any student conduct meetings or hearings.
Role of a Process Advisor
Process advisors act as a support and guidance resource for students within the student conduct process. Process advisors can:
- Help a student prepare for a meeting or hearing
- Observe the meeting or hearing
- Speak privately with a student during a meeting or hearing at the request of the student
Process advisors can not:
- Speak on behalf of a student
- Participate in meeting or hearing other than to introduce themselves
- Ask questions of reporters, responders, witnesses, or board members
Who Can Serve as a Process Advisor
A process advisor can be anyone that the student chooses and who agrees to be their advisor. A process advisor can not be another party in the case (like a reporter or witness). Since a process advisor is a support resource, we recommend you select someone you are comfortable working with. Process advisors could be:
- A friend
- A family member
- Ship faculty or staff member
- An attorney or other outside representative (paid for by the student)
